Eating right around the Holiday's

Let's face it, the holiday's often come along with good times, fun memories, and strong temptation to overindulge. There's family gatherings, office parties, and community gift exchange activities that can threaten our healthy eating regimen that we have worked so hard to maintain. If we can just make it through November and December with a little bit of planning and healthy eating discipline, we will be well on our way to success.

Delicious eggnog, pecan pie, turkey stuffing, and even uncle Ned's brownies can derail the best of us! You can still enjoy good eats during the holidays simply by following these holiday healthy eating tips from your friends at Korwitts Chiropractic Center:

Do more of this...

* Consume Fruits and Veggies

* Consume  Whole Grains

* Consume Beans and Legumes

* Consume Nuts and Seeds

* Consume Fish, Skinless Poultry, and plant-based alternatives

* Fat-free and low-fat dairy products

* Healthy Fats

* Bring any extra holiday goodies to the clinic for Dr. Korwitts and Dr. LeHoux to enjoy. They will waste no time devouring your goodies!

Do less of this...

* Eating foods high in sodium and salt

* Eating foods high in saturated fat

* Eating too many sweets and added sugars, including sugar-sweetened beverages

* Eating red meats with high fat content- if you choose to eat red meat try selecting lean cuts

There's no such thing as eating perfect but there is a such thing as eating right, just be sure to choose wisely, compare nutrition labels, eat reasonable portions, watch your calorie intake, and even consider taking a nice relaxing post-meal walk to help energize your body and burn a few extra calories. And finally, enjoy...enjoy...enjoy yourself and your family.

Happy Holidays from the Korwitts Chiropractic Family!!
