Now...

When it comes to the holiday season...

There are bound to be a number of parties and get-together's!

Having said that...

There's also bound to be a lot of good food and beverages too!


In making this time of year the best that they can be...

I enjoy every aspect it has to offer! (And I mean, why wouldn't I?!)

The goal isn't to lose weight over the holiday season (nor is it to gain) but yet...

It's to savour and enjoy all there is to be savoured and enjoyed! (And, I'm not just talking about food!)

We love our Chocolate Fondue!
Cookies and Family time :)

But since today we're on the subject of holiday eats...

Here are some tips on how to stay healthy over the holiday season while still enjoying everything along the way!


Have a great day everyone!

    1. I've never made 'unhealthy' cookies before...except for those we made last Friday (but the recipe wasn't mine lol).

      Delete
  2. i have to watch myself on portion control... not because I over-fill, but because I like second helpings. :)

    One trick I use is to get up and brush my teeth or chew gum or - if the meal is over - go for a walk. something to change my thinking.

    1. or third or fourth helpings ;)

      I've heard of brushing your teeth before...never tried it though!

  3. I follow your tips Kierston! I am so all about portion control & not missing time to exercise or move & balance as well. I am mindful too - I don't eat just because.....

    COOKIES are my fav treat - I know you are surprised! ;)

    1. I used to be an expert at eating 'just because'. That got me into trouble ;)

      Cookies...I can't help but think of you every time I see cookies...especially molasses..or is it gingerbread? :p

  12. I totally agree about the alcohol moderation at parties--too much and I lose all food inhibitions!

    Love that spinach/chicken recipe. We have a few Asian markets around here so I might have to go find that spice and make it!

  13. My holiday tip to share is that you are eating the cookies all wrong. You put the whole cookie in your mouth and drink it with milk or coffee. Then you have cookie flavored drink. DUH!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Great tips! Christmas is a time when it's easy to let it all go. The best tip I ever heard was simply 'eat the protein first'. It makes me fuller and less inclined to go nuts on the sugar!
