Grab a healthier bite

Eating healthy during the holiday season is always difficult. Who wants to eat nutritious food when there are cookies, cakes and pies all around? Well here are some things to think about before grabbing that extra cookie.

Favorite cookie recipes

We all have favorites when it comes to Christmas cookies. Personally, I love almost all cookies. But these three are my absolute favorite. I love baking them with family and then freezing them to enjoy throughout the holidays and into the new year.

Keeping a food journal

Sometimes just seeing what you eat can help you to manage your weight. Have you ever written down everything you ate in a single day? Imagine seeing those five cookies or half a bag of Doritos written on paper.

Ho-ho-holiday food!

When it comes to the holidays, it seems everyone has a favorite recipe or family tradition. Dishes that are a staple on the holiday table and may never be made any other time of year. We asked readers to share their favorite must-have recipes for the holidays.
