4. Take Ownership of the Situation

· When bringing or making something for the party, bring a healthy option. Chances are everyone else will be glad you did!

· Fruit platters/salad, hard-boiled eggs stuffed with hummus (yolks removed), mini yogurt parfaits, date’n nut bites, or a box of oranges are just a few ways to remind you to stay on track.

5. Everything in Moderation – 80-20 Rule

Staying mindful over the holidays does not mean all or nothing. Follow the 80/20 rule. This means eat planned and on purpose healthy meals and snacks 80% of the time and enjoy holiday treats 20% of the time.

Do the 80/20 rule system !
