Helpful holiday health habits

When you think of Thanksgiving, you usually picture a nice, home-cooked meal with the family.

But the holiday centered around a meal, isn't always the best for you.

"Thanksgiving, Christmas, we all have special foods for these events," says registered dietitian and nutritionist, Emma Rueth. "So I'm not saying get rid of those. I'm just saying moderation."

Here are some helpful tips on how to incorporate healthy habits into the holidays:

  1. Eat a balanced meal (equal portions of fruits, vegetables, healthy carbs and lean protein)
  2. During downtime, try to stay active (try to add 30 minutes of moderate exercise daily)
  3. Try to stick to one plate for your meal

"Give it a try before the holiday season because you're going to be cutting down those calories," says Rueth.
