3 Ways to Stay Healthy this Holiday Season

Keep your health in check during the holiday season

Many of us will have some difficulty in staying healthy during the holiday season. Christmas and New Year period bring people and families together to share the joys of the season, which includes great meals and holiday feasts. This is understandable and nothing wrong with a little bit of indulgence once a year.

But if your health might be already faltering and causing you problems, the holiday season is the time when it can come under increasing pressure, with the tempting foods, drinks and sweets all around you. Using some common sense and temperance, one can have enjoyable and even indulgent meals, yet stay healthy during the holidays. Here are three ways to stay healthy in holiday season.

Holiday feast
Christmas and New Year holiday feasts can be rich and indulgent, but it's good to include some healthy alternatives as part of your meals.

Stay nourished at all times

The reason why it is very tempting to change your healthy diet in the holiday season is the fact that the holiday season is very cold. You therefore tend to eat more cooked meals, let alone rich festive food, instead of healthier alternatives, such as raw food and fruits. All those tasty, rich meals make it easy to "fall of the wagon" and indulge.

The key to avoiding this is to keep yourself well nourished at all times. Other than Christmas dinner and New Year's feast, don't have your tasty holidays meals on an empty stomach, as unusual as it sounds. Instead, have snacks in between the meals and include at least one healthy meal in the day, perhaps in the evening. Steamed vegetables, root vegetables, starchy and protein foods are good alternatives.

This will give you a good balance for eating healthy, yet also enjoying rich and tasty holiday meals. Healthy snacks in between will give you a feeling of fullness, therefore preventing you from indulging in heavy holiday meals.

Get healthier versions of your favorite foods to eat

One of the reasons why a lot of people who have managed to maintain a healthy lifestyle "fall off the wagon" during the holiday season is because they are unable to eat different foods from what everyone else is having. A solution to this problem is finding some healthy versions of the foods you like. For instance, you can choose to use coconut oil when preparing food instead of using butter. The advantage of doing this is that it enables you to enjoy the kind of foods your friends are having but in a healthier way.

Remember to include some healthy snacks and alternatives in your holiday season meals,
which can be also enticing and tasty.

Finding some recipes on healthy sweet diets is one way of coming up with different delicious foods. It is also advisable to have the food with friends and family instead of making two sets of meals. This reduces the temptation even more. If you do this, you will manage to enjoy your holidays without gaining any weight.

Take probiotics to stay healthy

Apart from maintaining a healthy weight, no one wants to get sick during the holidays because there are a lot of fun activities that happen during that period. With the cold environment during the holidays, you need to do your best to avoid getting the flu. Taking probiotics on a daily basis may help you maintain your health. Probiotics protect your body from bacterial infections, as well as offer other health benefits. Yoghurt is one of the best and rather tasty source of probiotics.

Getting a health insurance card is also advisable. This is because it enables you to get treatment at a lower price in case you fall sick during the holidays.

In conclusion, it is important to keep healthy during the holidays in order to avoid ruining all you had accomplished throughout the year.
