The holidays come around once a year, so you should enjoy the gift of being with loved ones while eating your favorite holiday recipes! And you'd be pleased to know true holiday weight gain is not as large as we once thought!! Woohoooo ;)
Rather than stressing over how many calories, fat, refined carbs etc. etc... I encourage you to try to incorporate some lightened-up holiday sides to balance those heavy duty traditional dishes. YUMMMM
When shopping in the store, think as if you're filling a Crayola Crayon box. There are so many holiday colors that can be found in the produce aisle: deep reds, dark greens, oranges, yellows, pinks, and blues - the list goes on!
Cheers, to finishing off the year happy and healthy! #FuelForTheGOLD#FuelForTheNewYear
