We spend so much of the year focused on healthy living and eating, it almost feels like the holidays are a special treat to ourselves. Here’s your reward for all of your hard work – unlimited cookies, cakes, pies, brownies, eggnog, hot chocolate, candy canes, you name it! Now, holidays with family have become synonymous with sweets.
And, of course, a slice of cake is fine, but it’s almost impossible not to overindulge when you have a lovely Christmas spread right before your eyes. This year, we urge you to consider your options.
Grab some Daily Greens juices to bring with you for the holidays. Challenge yourself to swap a sweet for a green juice. You’ll get a burst of nutrients and naturally occurring sugars from organic fruits and vegetables, instead of processed sugar. Other strategies that might help, load those plates with vegetables and protein to feel full for longer and if you’re going to enjoy dessert, share a slice with a loved one or serve yourself a smaller portion.
Give yourself the greatest gift of health. Happy holidays from the Daily Greens team!
