Looking to stay healthy and fight off those extra pounds during the festive season. Try out these healthy holiday tips.
Sign up for a few gym classes
We know that it is expensive to pay for a 10 round gym classes or even for a one month class at your favorite fitness center. But knowing that the classes are already paid for will definitely be encouraged to visit the gym during the entire time the festive lights are up. Because not even a holiday cookie will be able to make you throw away the money out the window. Purchase the classes now itself so that you will have a few classes left over for the first week of January. So you’re inspired to follow through on your New Year’s fitness resolution as well.
There is a great chance that a bunch of friends and family might show up at your place for brunch or dinner this month. Instead of chatting about the important things over high-calorie eggs Benedicts and cocktails you can try out a spread of healthy foods. Take a vegetarian cooking class for yourself so that you will have nutritious meal options at hand when the holidays show up.
Slim down for your holiday
Planning to head over for a potluck dinner. Make sure you do a little research to find out recipes that are similar to yours that use lower-fat ingredients. A few healthy holiday tips we love: If you’re tasked with bringing dip to a party, substitute protein-rich Greek yogurt for sour cream. Or cook up whipped cauliflower instead of mashed potatoes.
Subscribe to a self-care box
Try out a subscription box which will make keeping healthy through the festive season easier. Sign on with a meal kit delivery service so you already know you have good-for-you meals covered, or subscribe to a beauty box ($30 for 3 months, birchbox.com) that will take care of your stressed-out skin during party season.
