Tips to Help You Resolve to Eat Well During the Hectic Holidays and into 2017


Remember to fill half of your plate with vegetables and fruit. Remember to drink water to stay hydrated.

Eat regularly. Eat mindfully. Eat well. Eat to nourish yourself, not just satisfy hunger. Exercise. 

Savor the flavor of your foods and beverages. Slow down your eating pace.

Organize your home and office to make healthy choices easy. Keep a fruit bowl on your kitchen counter or desk. Keep vegetables and fruits at eye level in your refrigerator.

Listen to your body’s hunger and fullness cues. Love foods that love you back.

Visualize yourself relaxing in your favorite place when feeling stressed. Breathe deeply.

Every day is a new opportunity to improve your health. Enjoy!
