The holidays are just around the corner, and that means big meals are coming, too. With so much delicious food on the table it’s easy to pack on a few holiday pounds. Fortunately, if you’re looking to enjoy the season without going up a notch on your belt loop, there are healthy options which don’t just taste great, but are also great for you. By combining a healthy diet and healthy life choices, you can even come out the other side of the holidays in better shape than you began them!

Vegetable Soup

Adding a delicious and nutritious soup to your menu is an easy way to make your holiday meal healthier. Choose a vegetable base for your soup, such as cauliflower or tomato and keep with holidays autumn and winter themes. Not only are soups simple recipes which can be left to simmer while you prepare the other elements of the meal, but with a vegetable base you also make it an easy way to get some healthy food options onto the table.

Serve Fish for a Healthy Main

Everybody knows that the staple mains for the holiday seasons are ham and turkey, but that doesn’t mean you can’t flip the script and try something different. Fish provide an excellent source of clean, tasty and healthy protein to serve as the focal point of your holiday feast. Combine your fish with a side of roasted potatoes and vegetables to provide your guests with a mix of tastes and textures that satisfies and sustains.

Supplementing Your Healthy Eating Choices with the Longspine Method

Eating great is only one part of the equation. If you truly want to live healthier, continue the great decisions at the table when your holiday gathering disperses. Getting on a fitness program takes the benefits of a cleaner diet and turns the effectiveness up to eleven. The Longspine Method combines core stabilization techniques with plyometrics and resistance training to help you trim down and tone up. When combined with a healthy diet it can help you become the best you that you can be.

Get Some Help With Your Diet

Sometimes during special holiday meals we overindulge and feel gross afterwards. Hey, its the holidays… have some fun and don’t be so hard on yourself. However, an overindulgent meal or two is one thing, letting that lapse into a whole season of bad choices can lead to problems. Sometimes we need a little help to stay on track. There are 29 “other days of December” that eating right and healthier still makes sense. Our mental and physical health is dragged down by excessive fatty foods and high and low carb cycles, leading to decline in physical health and low energy during our darker, chillier months.
