The holiday season is a healthy-eating minefield. First, most traditional foods are either heavy on the sugar and carbs, or loaded with fats and salt. Even more, you're expected to eat. A lot. And the holiday season lasts for months.
Despite all these challenges, you don't have to undo your healthy way of eating until New Year's. You can go through the holidays with a few healthy eating strategies in mind—and no, that doesn't mean being completely restrictive. Just be mindful and change your approach.
For starters, if you're tracking calories, skip the charcuterie and cheese boards. Hang out over at the crudités platter, which will still fill you up without all the extra sodium.
