Rock The Holiday Season With These 3 Food Ideas

Holiday parties are always good for lots of family, friends, fun and, of course, FOOD! Achieving your health goals during this wonderful time of year is totally possible with me as your nutritionist. With the right game plan, what may seem to be an obstacle to your weight loss goals can actually be a huge opportunity. Rock this holiday season and fall in love with these 3 awesome food ideas!

1. SWEET POTATOES

These naturally-sweet root veggies don’t need much besides a few minutes in the microwave or on the stove to taste delicious, and if you eat them pretty plain—whether mashed or baked—keep on munching. Rich in metabolism-stimulating phytonutrients, copper, iron, and foliate, and higher in potassium than bananas, they’re also full of antioxidants, which help fight inflammation. Unlike many carbs, sweet potatos have a low glycemic index meaning they help stabilize blood sugar to prevent cravings. They’re versatile too. You can have them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack. Check out these sweet potato recipes below:

2. APPLES, RASPBERRIES, AND MANGOS GALORE!

Fruit is a gift to your adrenals. While everyone else is clamoring to take cookies, cake or pie, load your plate with fruits! You will see many of the fruits from the Phase 1 and 3 food lists during the holidays especially at parties. Be on the lookout for fruits like strawberries, kiwi, pineapple, oranges, cherries, blackberries, raspberries, figs, apples, and papaya. Whatever you see there remember it’s everything your adrenals need to make them happy.

3. TURKEY, ROAST, AND CHICKEN

The centerpiece of any holiday table is often a large protein source like a roast, a turkey or even chicken. Use this to stabilize the blood sugar by having 3 small 10-15 g. servings throughout the party or event.

Whether it’s leftovers from the main course or other protein nibbles, whatever your host has left over should definitely make it into your to-go bag. You can add the protein to your vegetables to make a stir fry, place it in a salad, in soups, tacos and so much more. And let’s not forget how taking these leftover proteins can be beneficial to your wallet as well! Here are some excellent protein ideas you can make with those leftovers:
