Nutrition Through The Holidays
In typical American culture, we spend the last three months of the year indulging in holiday treats, then we launch into strict, perhaps unrealistic resolutions come January. In “The Last 90 Days” challenge, author and blogger Rachel Hollis suggests we use this time to make realistic goals and lifestyle changes to be more successful in the upcoming year.
What are small nutritional changes you can make yet this year to better your wellness through the holidays and prepare for a healthy new year?
Here are a few ideas:
- Limit or remove sugary beverages (soda or overly-sweetened coffee, tea, and lemonade)
- Replace white carbohydrates with whole-grain or vegetable-based options (e.g., brown instead of white rice, zucchini noodles instead of pasta)
- Limit desserts or alcoholic beverages to only certain days of the week
Try adding one new goal per week or month. Remember to make goals that are the most impactful to your well-being, not what you think you “should” do. Cheers to a healthy end to 2018!
