As the holiday season approaches, it’s important to create a plan to ensure our focus remains on health, perhaps this year more than ever. As many celebrations are heavily centered around food, it’s easy to get caught up in the excitement and allow our nutrition to take the back seat.
Additionally, for many of us, as the weather gets colder, we tend to spend an increased amount of time indoors focused on more sedentary activities.
The combination of sedentary activities and nutrient-poor foods can lead to undesirable weight gain and other health effects (headaches, brain fog, increased colds & flu, achy joints, dry skin).
While it’s unrealistic for everyone to eat ‘clean’ and healthy 100% of the time, I do recommend that individuals create a plan of action that will support good nutrition throughout the holiday season.
Here are some great tips to help you and your family remain focused on nourishing foods throughout the holidays:
