Nothing quite says “Happy Holidays” like a delicious cup of eggnog or a gingerbread cookie that is fresh out of the oven. And although in a perfect world you could drink eggnog and eat gingerbread cookies all day long without gaining any weight, if you are going to keep your body in the best shape possible after having CoolSculpting done, you should make sure that you are indulging in snacks that are a bit healthier this holiday season. This article will discuss a few of the foods and beverages that you can indulge in and share with friends at your next holiday party.
Filled with a heart healthy ingredient called resveratrol, red wine is not only good for your body, but it is substantially lower in calories as well. Rather than grabbing that glass of spiked eggnog or any other sort of festive cocktail, consider reaching for a glass of red wine instead. To add a fun and easy twist to your glass of holiday red wine, try mixing it with a little bit of seltzer water to give it more of a bubbly flavor.
The tricky part about eating almonds is that although they are extremely good for you and are packed with protein, they are packed with fat as well. However, by eating a few almonds with your glass of red wine, you can help get that salty snack that you’ve been craving without having to dip into the potato chips. Plus, the lean protein that almonds provide your body with will help you to maintain a healthy weight.
Although those gingerbread men cookies may be calling your name and taunting you to eat them, they are packed with refined sugars and butter— both of which aren’t going to help you keep off the extra weight. However, just because you are watching what you eat doesn’t mean that you can’t indulge in something sweet. As another heart healthy food that is significantly lower in calories than other desserts, dark chocolate is a must-eat-treat this holiday season. With varieties such as salted covered chocolate or almond filled chocolate, there is sure to be an option for you to choose.
