Eat Healthy During the Holiday Celebrations

Contributed by: NAPSA

(NAPSA) - Are you anxious about maintaining a healthy diet during the upcoming holiday festivities? The Cancer Research Foundation of America (CRFA) offers a few healthy eating tips for all those special occasions. A well-balanced diet and exercise can reduce your risk of cancer and other health problems!

    Meat:
    Choose leaner cuts of meat and trim the extra fat. Generally, the white meat on turkey is leaner than dark meat. Take the skin off before you eat.

    Stuffing:
    Substitute cranberries, raisins or apricots for half of the meat for your stuffing.

    Gravy:
    Reduce fat in your gravy by making it from low-fat broth rather than meat drippings. Pour the fat off the drippings if you choose to use them for your gravy.

    Vegetables:
    Help yourself to two or three servings of steamed or baked vegetables, and avoid heavy sauces or butter. Use spices to enhance the flavor. Add a salad as a side dish.

    Dessert:
    Serve yourself a smaller portion of dessert, and choose those lower in fat.

    Beverages:
    Choose mulled wine or cider in place of eggnog.
