Party Hearty

’Tis the season for tasty temptations. Hold on to your good eating habits at this year’s work parties and family get-togethers with these tips for noshing nutritiously at holiday events.

Eat Before You Go

You’ll be less tempted to eat wrong if you eat right before you head out the door.
Enjoy a light meal at home so you don’t show up at the holiday-happening hungry. A growling stomach can lead to poor food choices.

Bring a Dish

Bring along your own tasty tidbits — of a nutritious nature! This way you can party down knowing there’s at least one dish you can gobble up. Try this salad with winter fruit recipe.

Dress for Less

Wear an outfit that fits just right, one that won’t indulge over-indulging. This trick curtails munching on morsels that could tighten your togs.

Use the Smallest Plate

Survey the edible options before getting in line so you know ahead of time what you’ll put on your plate. Grab the smallest plate they’ve got and pile on the good-for-you stuff first. This leaves little space for less-nutritious nibbles.

Out of Sight, Out of Mind

After you’ve made a plate, put the focus on friends instead of food and get out of range of the goodies. Socialize with tempting tidbits out of sight so they don’t beckon you back for more.

Water It Down

Sip plenty of water throughout the fête to dilute any desire to overdo it. Your body will thank you for the hydration, while your stomach stays satiated.

With these tips and a little self-control, you’ll find you don’t have to forego the festivities to stick to a nutritious meal plan.
