Surviving The Holiday Parties!

Going to a holiday party?

During the holiday season, we tend to go out more and are tempted with things we may not normally eat.

Here are some tips to help you stay on track:

Offer to bring a healthy dish with you
Don’t go to hungry
Carry water with you at all times
Don’t stand near the food tables

If you’re going for a full meal Try to stick to the plate method:  

½ of the plate = Non-starchy Veggies
¼ of the plate= Lean Meats  
¼ of the plate: Complex Carbohydrates

Eat Veggies 1st –> Protein –> Starch at the end
