HOW TO MAINTAIN
A HEALTHY DIET
DURING THE HOLIDAYS

This month I'd like to share with you some tips to help maintain good eating habits and avoid upset stomachs, and sickness from over eating or eating the foods that are unhealthy, especially if you are dealing with a physical ailment and conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.  

1.) Eat in moderation:  The body can only handle so much intake of food.  While it may taste good, and your mind is telling you that you want more, your physical body will give signals and symptoms of when enough is enough! Learn to say "no thank you."

2.)  Eat early in the day: Avoid those late dinners, snacks and trips to the refrigerator after hours.  Give your body the opportunity to digest the foods that you've eaten early, so that you can rest peacefully at night.  Most foods take a minimum of 2-4 hours to be properly digested, some meat may take longer.

 

3.)  What looks good, may not be good for you!

Excessive sweets, especially confections with a lot of sugar, caffeine, chocolate, and spicy foods; will give you the blues later, from bloating, indigestion, high sugar levels, headaches, heartburn and toothaches are just some of the symptoms from eating too much of a good thing!

4.)  Avoid drinking excessive amounts of alcohol:  While some may believe that "a little wine for the stomach sake" is ok, many people don't use restraint, The Word also says, "wine is a mocker, and strong drink is raging."  Keep the "spirits" out of your holiday beverages and make or drink something that won't give you a "hang-over, headache, or make you sick at the stomach."

 

Be wise in what you eat, "live long and prosper!"

FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A HEALTHY LIFE STYLE:

A.) BEVERAGES:  Fruit mixers with a blender, sparkling juice, egg nog, fruit punches with ice cream, specialty teas and hot chocolate or hot apple cider for that warm toasty feeling. Remember to drink plenty of water!

B.)  Fresh Fruit:  Fruit baskets are in, also fruit can be use to decorate our table as a center piece, place a bowl of fruit on your inn tables to snack on.  Include tropical fruits such as mango's, coconut and avocado.

C.) Produce: Baked or cooked yams, green vegetables such as broccoli, and salad's are good for you.

I remember eating mincemeat pie and blue berry, peach and apple cobblers that my mother and grandmother baked.  The house smelled so good and although it was sweet, it didn't have all the preservatives, chemicals and additives that store bought food contains.  It may be more convenient and easier to buy it at the store, but it's not as healthy, nor does it taste as good. Start earlier with your meal if necessary, take your time and enjoy cooking and preparing that holiday meal and then eat and enjoy the fruits of your labor of love.  A great meal, doesn't have to be a big feast!
