We love the holidays and the wonderful, traditional meals we have this time of year. If you’re celebrating with family and friends, you are most likely having one of these traditional meals.
The nature of this season is often to have larger meals with rich food, high in starchy ingredients. Here are a few ways to celebrate and enjoy the season without compromising your nutrition or your palate:
- Stay hydrated by drinking up to 2 quarts of water a day. You can do this by drinking warm water and/or lemon water at room temperature.
- Drink ginger tea, mint tea, or lemon water after a meal to assist the digestive process.
- Refrain from consuming refined sugar, gluten, or dairy products.
- Remember to have a daily routine for exercising.
We all want to have a wonderful time during the holiday season, without giving up the traditional meals. If you do these four simple things throughout your holiday season, it will help your body stay balanced and assist the flow of your blood and your lymph systems.
We hope you have wonderful holiday season! Remember, what is the best thing to put into a pie? Your teeth!
