3 Healthy Food Fixes

Follow these diet fixes during the holiday season.

3 Healthy Food Fixes
  • Go light on lunch: "Combining simple vegetables with a protein like chicken or fish will help you fill up on healthy proteins and fiber without wasting calories," says John Rowley, best-selling author, certified trainer, and director of wellness for the International Sports Science Association. 
  • Steer Clear: "Swap heavy, ceamy soups and creamed dishes at dinner for cooked vegetables and low-fat or clear soups," says Rowley
  • Use your noodle: Spaghetti squash and zucchini noodles give that same pasta-noodle consistency without the carbs. Make your own pasta sauce or just toss noodles with olive oil and garlic. Add a protein, like chicken or turkey meatballs, for a healthier twist on a traditional favorite.
