Living Healthy Through the Hoildays

Will it be a hard time to stay healthy through the Holidays? In today's Lifestyle that will be the main theme on all the Networks Shows. Every Year about this time people can't wait to have all the comfort Holiday foods.

You know the types;
  • Turkey and Moms Stuffing
  • Ham deck out with pineapple, brown sugar and cloves
  • Lamb for some
  • Cranberry sauce
  • Sweet potatoes with Marshmallow topping
  • Mash potatoes with Gravy
  • Potato cakes with apples sauce and sour cream
  • Green bean casserole
  • Pumpkin Pie
  • Pecan Pie
  • Apple cranberry Pie
  • Mincemeat Pie
  • chocolate- Any kind
  • Nuts
  • Gingerbread houses
  • Eggnog
All these are high in Fat and Carbs. So what are we to do? You know we will be eating these things. Holidays dictate it and what kind would it be if we did not eat these foods?
I love the holidays and it traditions, just could not enjoy it without them. Sure we can modify them, as seen on some Network shows, but it would not be the same. Let's Face it, this time only come along once a year. If we can manage a little control and not over doing it, we will be fine.
We can exercise a little more in the yard or in the house. Clean out the closets, get rid of the coats (the coat drives are out), do a Winter cleaning verses a spring cleaning of the whole house, Get those decorations up and start to bring in the Holidays with a healthier energy. Yes we can enjoy this seasons Holidays and still keep a Healthy Lifestyle.


  1. It is just hubby and me so we are going meatless this year. Since we have had turkeys in our yard, I can't very well go and eat them.LOL. Funny you should mention cleaning. I just went through our closets as there is something called 'Coats For Kids' here. You donate the coat and it will be cleaned and then families in need can get a coat for a WNY winter. I found 4 coats that nobody was using and lots of other clothes. It felt good.... Michelle

  2. I agree.....moderation is the key! BTW, thank for your visit and enjoy the holiday........
