12 days of Christmas

It is finally December meaning it is socially acceptable to celebrate the winter Holiday season! Coming from Patty Minta, here are a few tips to stay healthy during the Holiday season.

On the first day of Christmas, my dietitian said to me…

Bring One dish to share (a low-calorie nutritious choice for the meal)

Two sugary beverages (sticking to two limits our liquid calories)

Three yummy cookies (have a few cookies but keep track and don’t overdo it)

Four fruits for snacking (when hungry, choose a serving of fruit instead of sweets)

Five veggies each day (get all those phytonutrients by meeting this daily minimum)

Six feet from the buffet (prevent mindless eating by moving away to converse)

Seven days of exercise (don’t forget to exercise regularly during the holidays)

Eight glasses of water (daily, and especially before and during parties and gatherings)

Nine ounces of protein (three 3-ounce portions of lean, natural protein each day)

Ten pounds we won’t gain (by sticking to a healthy eating routine through the season)

Eleven new choices (if we tried 1 new healthy food/month, we now eat more variety)

Twelve counted blessings (count our blessings each and every day and all year long)
