FuelingYou Holiday Survival guide w/ Recipes

Not everyone eats excessively during the holiday’s. 

However, there is no doubt that we are all encouraged to eat and drink just a little bit more as we run from holiday party, to house-warming- As we attend  all of these social events, we all seem to exercise less.

You don't have to let all of your hard work to eat better quality food, and exercise go right out the window until after the new year.
I am not encouraging anyone start a weight loss program during the holiday's. However, this is a perfect time to increase our "awareness" so we can insure our weight is maintained whether we are hosting a party or invited guest.

Enjoy local favorites

Imagine what the pilgrims and Indians must have eaten back during the first Thanksgiving holiday’s-
 They would have gathered local seafood, Mussels, clams, crabs, lobster, eel, and  hunted wild game, while  enjoying a variety of seasonal fruits and vegetables.

Since stoves were not available in the new world in the 1600’s they would have grilled the meat, and enjoyed some dried fruits for sweetness instead of pies.

 When we fast forward to the 20th-21st centuries, we have added prepared boxed foods, canned sauces and gravies which add unwanted sugar and salt bodies.
  Why not  give thanks and bring to the table some healthy alternatives that are reminiscent of that first holiday meal?
