The Recipe for a Healthier Holiday Season
The holidays season provides numerous nutritional challenges, between Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah and plenty of parties. There is just so much great food available that we need the ‘dietitian to the stars’, the renowned diet diva, Tara Collingwood. She provides some timely tips for maintaining a better diet and wellness this Fall and holiday season.
THE ‘GOOD STUFF’ TO FILL UP ON
Fill up on Almonds. Along with our daily skincare routines, snacking on almonds can be an easy and delicious way to help benefit skin. November is National Healthy Skin Month and research shows that eating almonds may benefit skin when it comes to wrinkles, skin pigmentation and UVB rays. A recent University of California-Davis study found that postmenopausal women who ate two ounces of almonds a day had a 16% reduction in wrinkle appearance and a more even skin tone. People wrinkle as they age and snacking on almonds may be a tasty way to help reduce them. For more information, visit www.almonds.com.
MAINTAINING A HEALTHIER LIFESTYLE DURING THE HOLIDAYS
Consider Atkins, the leading low carb lifestyle with a wide range of delicious snacks that allow indulgence without sacrificing great flavor or wellness. As a dietitian, Tara likes that it helps improve overall wellness by reducing carbs and sugar. Atkins’ latest products include the Chocolate Crème Protein Wafer Crisp, Dulce de Leche Dessert Bar, and the Vanilla Caramel Pretzel Protein Bar. Atkins’ is hosting a contest right now that celebrates Small Wins and attainable goals using #AtkinsSmallWins. Check out the giveaway and prize packs on @atkins-nutritionals.
