229: How to eat ALL your holiday faves (the healthy way)
We’re approaching “the most wonderful time of the year”! But unfortunately for most Americans, it can also be the most health-wrecking time of the year. In fact, the average American gains 5 lbs over the month between Thanksgiving and Christmas!
But the good news is, with a few tips and tricks, you can have your cake and eat it too!
On this episode I offer my holiday supplement recommendations, and healthier alcoholic drink alternatives to serve at your holiday party (that is IF you drink – otherwise don’t start!) I also reveal what foods and beverages my wife and I ‘pre-game’ with to help us avoid eating foods we’ll regret later.
Last, I share my best holiday recipes and ingredient swaps – so you can enjoy holiday foods you love…that actually love you back!
