The official start of the holiday season is a wonderful time of the year, but more often than not, it's a particularly busy time.
Holiday parties are full of sweet treats like cookies, pies, and holiday drinks galore – usually within arm's reach. This can make sticking to your fitness and nutrition goals, feel impossible.
Parties, traveling, and meal prep may yield precious time... making it especially challenging to stay on track.
Combat the holiday season chaos with these wellness tips:
Prepare Healthy Dishes
Stay on track, but don't give up on your favorite holiday treats.
Instead of sugar and carb-loaded dishes, opt for a healthy alternative without the added sugar. Check out these revised, but still delicious, recipes!
- Roasted Honey-Nut Squash
- Sriracha Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
- Peanut Butter & Oat Energy Balls
- Creamy Brussel Sprouts & Mushroom Fettuccine
With holiday festivities going on, exercise may be the last thing on your mind.

Don't stress or fall behind this holiday season. Keeping up with your goals, big and small, keeps you on track and away from the post-holiday blues.
Writing down goals, setting an attainable schedule each week, and holding yourself accountable can start you in the right direction. There are multiple apps to help track progress along your journey, too.
Take it one week, one day at a time.
