Eating Holiday-Healthy

The feasting season is here! From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, there will be ample opportunity to become, well, more ample in the weight department!

This year, making smart choices at holiday parties and dinners may help you avoid the yearly weight loss resolutions on New Year’s Day. Here are the foods you should be looking for…

Veggies – Everyone knows that our green and yellow buddies in the vegetable kingdom can fill us up without filling us out
Shrimp Cocktail – High in protein and low in fat
Pork Tenderloin, Turkey or Ham – For the meat-lovers, nutritionists say these are your best choices for maintaining balance in your diet
Swedish Meatballs - Another protein-rich option

Of course, none of these foods gives you a license to over-eat. They just give you a fighting chance to make it through the holidays without packing on the pounds
