Holiday Health Tips

Bombarded by a barrage of belly filling beverages and nosh?

Here are just a few healthy tips for the holidays from yours truly at Weal World Travel.

  1. Eat before you go to a holiday party. A healthy soup or salad can fill you up enough so that you are not tempted to over fill your plate.
  2. If consuming alcohol, make sure to drink 1 glass of water per alcoholic beverage. This will help prevent hangover and alleviate the dehydrating effect of alcohol.
  3. Allow yourself to indulge in moderation guilt-free by enjoying bite size portions of holiday treats and having them no more than 20% of the time during the week (i.e. 1-2 days/week).
  4. Balance your indulgences with a hearty salad.
  5. At parties, eat the healthy food first (e.g. vegetables) and wait until later to have the treats.
