Healthy Eating for Holiday Parties
Don’t arrive on an empty stomach!   Although you may be tempted to skip lunch so you can splurge on dessert, don’t! Have a bowl of cereal, vegetable sticks, fresh fruit, a salad, a handful of nuts, or a small sandwich before you arrive.

Offer to bring a healthy dish!   Provides you with a good menu option and your host will greatly appreciate the help.

Avoid excess alcohol and snacks!   Save your calories for the main meal.  Alcohol provides many calories and virtually no nutrients.  Also, try not to sit within arm’s reach of tempting snack foods.

Select small portions! Yes, you can.   Moderation is the key. Selecting small portions allows you to control your calorie intake yet enjoy the different items offered.  If you really crave a high-calorie item, go ahead and treat yourself to a small serving.

Eat slowly.  Think about it.   Take time and enjoy the taste of your meal. Pace yourself and try to be the last person to finish each course.  Take small bites, and chew slowly. It usually takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get the message from your stomach that you are full.

Leave the table when you are done!   If you linger at the table, you may be tempted to continue eating even if you are not hungry.  Stay long enough to enjoy the meal, but leave the table while you are still ahead of the calorie game.  Offer to help with dishes, clear the table, or take a walk.

Healthy Holidays from Lourdes-Mercy and Mercy Medical Associates!
