Recipes for the Weekend + Healthy Holiday Tips
Fuel Your Festivities
Begin your day with a balanced breakfast that is high in both protein and soluble fiber. Great combos include eggs and raspberries or Greek yogurt with a tablespoon of chia seeds. Soluble fiber attracts water and forms a gel-like substance that slows digestion and keeps you feeling full for longer.

Also, be sure to have a midday nutrient dense snack by incorporating protein, soluble fiber, and/or a small amount of healthy fats. Options like a handful of roasted nuts, string cheese, yogurt, or carrots with hummus are excellent choices. This will help prevent impulsive choices like filling up on appetizers or over eating desserts at your Holiday meal.
Navigating holiday feasts while staying mindful of portion control is a smart move for both enjoyment and well-being. While the variety of tasty dishes can be overwhelming, opt for smaller plates to naturally rein in portion sizes. Listen to your body's cues and take your time with each bite, so you can savor the festivities without going overboard.
TIP: The color of the plate appears to play a role as well. A study showed participants consumed 150 fewer calories when using white plates compared to those using red of black plates.
