Host Richard Hentschel and Dru Banks, Nutrition and Wellness Educator talk about holiday eating tips. Avoiding holiday weight gain should be the goal for all of use. Typically we gain anywhere between 1-3 pounds during the holiday season. Over time that added weight can add to health concerns. Suggestions include using a small plate, eat as snack before the party so we do not arrive really hungry, put lightly cooked or raw vegies on the plate first. Walking away from the food table is also a good idea.
Green Side Up is a weekly gardening program produced by University of Illinois Extension. It is hosted by Richard Hentschel, Extension Educator, Horticulture.
