Healthy Bites for December:
Healthy holiday party tips
As the holidays approach, keeping a commitment to healthful eating can be challenging. Research shows that the average American gains about one pound during the winter holiday season. According to a National Institutes of Health report, most people don’t lose that extra pound of weight, so it accumulates over time. Follow these helpful tips for eating sensibly at holiday parties without increasing your waistline or sacrificing taste.
