December 6th, 2017 · No Comments

 When the holidays roll around each year, we often wonder where the time has gone. Just as quickly as the holiday festivities arrive, so do those holiday pounds that tend to stick to the stomach and hips if we’re not mindful of healthy eating habits. To offset those cravings for holiday cookies, candies, and treats, consider stocking your refrigerator with healthy snacks such as apples with tasty dips or crispy carrot sticks with premium ranch dip from Dippin’ Stix.

The holidays often find us consuming larger-than-normal portions, yummy foods, and tasty treats during family get-togethers. Following a few simple steps to good eating habits can help to curb your appetite and keep away those unwanted extra pounds:

  1. Never attend a holiday party or family get-together hungry. Have a healthy snack before you arrive.
  2. Stand a distance away from foods and snacks loaded with empty calories such as cookies, chips, and pastries so they aren’t so convenient and easy to reach.
  3. Focus on family and friends instead of the food. Attend the party and enjoy the conversation, networking, and meeting new friends or acquaintances.
  4. Limit your portions when filling your plate. Do your best to savor the smell, taste, and texture of the foods being served, and slow down.
  5. Fill your menu plan with plenty of fruits and vegetables and avoid going to fast food restaurants or treating yourself to treats filled with sugars and fats.

If you’re working hard to maintain or lose weight during the upcoming holiday season, remember the tips noted above. It’s also important to be active and enrich your menu with whole grains and plenty of fruits and vegetables.

At Dippin’ Stix, we know about the temptations and struggles of holiday get-togethers. That’s why we have fresh snack options available to anyone, no matter the age.
