1. Start with a Healthy Breakfast- Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day. If you start your day with a clean breakfast, you’ll likely eat less throughout the rest of the day compared to if you skip. Try a bowl of oatmeal topped with fresh blueberries and slivered almonds or make a fruit smoothie with a tablespoon of wheat germ.
My favorite breakfast is 1/2 cup oatmeal, 3/4 cup almond milk, 1/2 apple grated, pinch of cinnamon, 1/2 scoop protein powder, 1 tbsp wheat germ and flaxseed!
But just a little. There’s no hard and fast rule with clean eating that says you can’t have “just one bite.” If you really, really won’t feel satisfied until you have a bite of that pumpkin cheesecake, then have a bite.
6. Cut Yourself Some Slack- So what happens if you can’t resist and eat with reckless abandon during the holidays? Don’t be too hard on yourself. Not partaking in all the delicious holiday foods is often difficult and takes pre-planning and a lot of motivation to avoid. If you get off track, get right back on after the holidays are over.
Good luck and please share what you are planning to do to stay focused this holiday season!
