Chanukah is over, but the holiday season is still in full swing as we start the last two weeks of December. Holiday parties and events continue, which means more nights out and fewer at home cooking nutritious and delicious meals. As you start your week, you may have the best intentions to eat well balanced meals and stay active, but everyone knows it’s hard to do this time of year. So before you get sidetracked by the delicious treats everyone is bringing into the office and the open bar at the evening event du jour, check out my Holiday Party Dos and Don’ts. Sure, you’ve probably heard all these tips before, but it doesn’t hurt to remind yourself to drink a glass of water between alcoholic drinks and to survey the offerings before you fill your plate. Even I have to remind myself before I head out to the multiple events I have this week!
Here’s what’s on my calendar for the week of December 17-23:
Monday: Out for charity event
Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash Primavera
Wednesday: Dinner out with friends
Thursday: Salmon Burgers with Cranberry Chutney and Roasted Green Beans
Friday: Brisket with Sweet Potatoes and Carrots (from the freezer), Spicy Caramelized Cauliflower with Raisins
Saturday: Dinner out with friends at Italian Kitchen
Sunday: Leftovers or Pizza night
Do you have a lot of holiday parties this week? How do you keep it healthy around the holidays?
