Holidays & Food Consumption

 

The fourth of July is tomorrow. It’s a great day for picnics, barbecues, fireworks, and outdoor activities. Usually, there is food. . .lots of food, and not necessarily healthy food.

What to do?

Make smart choices.

I avoid hot dogs, but am happy to eat a hamburger. Hot dogs have too much fat and too little nutritional value. I will eat chips, but a small amount. Potato salad is wonderful!

So, it goes to portion sizes, or skipping something else. I tend to eat in moderation. It’s okay to feel a little bit of hunger.

Basically, I’m not going without. I’m taking care of myself, for myself and those I love.

I tend to think about portion sizes. I don’t worry so much about everything needing to be healthy food. I find that if I deny myself the opportunity to choose, I crave the item I’ve band from my diet. I guess it’s true that we want what we cannot have. . .

Challenge for Those Who Accept. . .Have a wonderful holiday! Eat food you enjoy! Work on controlling the portions, and don’t worry about the rest! Remember moderation. . .
