Better Choices to Survive A Holiday party!

Posted Dec 01 2009 7:05am
  • Crudités. The fiber in veggies will help fill you up, and they provide a nice, satisfying crunch. Choose a spectrum of colors (broccoli, cauliflower and carrots are good choices) and serve with low- or non-fat plain yogurt. Add some fresh herbs and seasonings for flavor.
  • Mixed nuts. When eaten sparingly, nuts are a terrific snack. Walnuts are a favorite, as they are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. Almonds and roasted soy nuts are also good choices. Nuts can be high in calories and fat (even if it’s the healthy monounsaturated kind) so don’t overindulge.
  • Smoked salmon. Salmon (especially wild Alaskan sockeye salmon) provides omega-3 fatty acids, the anti-inflammatory, essential fats our bodies need for optimum health.
  • Grilled figs and bleu cheese. Figs are high in fiber and antioxidants, and when combined with a bit of bleu cheese, provide calcium and protein – all in a delicious, easy-to-eat package.
