A collection of holiday nutrition advice to get you to January 1st

Like perhaps many of you, I follow a variety of blogs - many of which are food, nutrition and fitness based. Instead of re-inventing the wheel, I decided to provide a few great posts I have seen over the last few days. I am hoping this will give you some great advice all in one place. Happy reading and Happy Holidays!

Looking for something to serve that you won't feel guilty about? These are some great dishes that make my mouth water just reading the recipes.

Love egg nog (like me), but don't love the calories that come with it? Check out this blog for some easy recipes to lighten up this favorite holiday drink.

I mainly like this post for the first recipe listed - healthy, fast and delicious! Check it out for an easy option while you are busy focusing on Christmas dinner prep.

While food choices make a huge difference, making sure you get up and move contributes to a successful holiday season as well. I love this post because it provides practical and creative tips to work in some fitness in between all of the eating and conversing. Check it out!
