Easter and Passover are upon us and what a great time of year! Spring has sprung and summer is on the way. We are amidst the 3 holiest days of the year and the kiddies are on Spring Break. (May or May not be a plus 😆) .
However, among these #blessings
, for those of us with food allergies, dietary #restrictions
and other medical issues (like #diabetes
) it may be a tough time. .
Here are my top tips for #surviving
💦Win with Water 💦
Drink water all day long. Not only is this #hydrating
for your dry winter skin, but it will also help you feel fuller. Drink a full glass before eating. Shoot for about 80 ounces a day. .
your plate dinner 🍽
More veggies, less potatoes. More chicken, less Marinade. If you are hosting the holiday, you will have a much easier time preparing your food without the risk of cross #contamination
of a danger food. If you are a guest, that can be tricky. Preparing ahead of time is the absolute BEST choice. Reach out to the host if possible, making her aware of your condition. I also highly recommend bringing your own meals/snacks. Once people understand how sick you can get from food, they will not #berate
you for packing your own. .
Dessert that is. Pick 1 Dessert you absolutely must have and have it! Again, same as above, talk to the host and bring your own if you have special dietary #requirements
🍸Add bubbles 🍸
can account for a large amount of calorie consumption. Try adding bubbles to your drink of choice. Adding seltzer instead of juice or soda to rum, vodka, #tequila
or even white wine (as a spritzer) is a great way to cut the calories. Add some seasonal fresh fruit for a pop of flavor. .
🧘♀️Move 🏊🏾♀️ Don’t skip #workouts
even if you are out of town. Find a way to get 30 minutes of active fitness in 3 times per week. There are many workouts designed for those with no gym access. #Calisthenics
need no equipment and you will get a great workout. Power walk!
