Navigating the Holiday Eating Season and Everyday Paleo Too Easy Chicken Adobo & Roasted Greens with Beets

We are all so busy during this time of the year, but it doesn't have to be a time to throw all of our healthy eating habits out the window.  Enjoy and indulge a bit during the holiday season, just don't give yourself license to go completely off road.  Here are a few tips that can help you navigate the holiday eating season.

1.  Drink your water.  Dehydration can trick you into thinking you are hungrier than you really are.  Drink water throughout the day.  Something that works for me is drinking a 16 oz of water before each meal.

2.  Don't go to that holiday party hungry.  That is a recipe for disaster.  If it's a cocktail/appetizer party you are attending, then be sure to have a good Paleo dinner before heading out.  If you are having dinner then have a snack before you leave.  A handful of almonds and a small apple.  Some carrot sticks, avocado slices, and a few pieces of leftover chicken.

3.  Tempting I know, to pick up that special once a year holiday treat at your favorite grocer.  Dang you Trader Joes!  But I challenge you!  As I am challenging myself.  Don't buy it!  Don't bring it into your house.  Make your holiday indulgences extremely special.  BE PICKY!  Don't pick up anything and everything that is offered to you.  Maybe you only go home for the holidays each year and Grandma bakes her famous apple pie.  Then have it.  But don't pick up every other store bought holiday dessert crap offered to you.

4.  Alcohol!  If you are truly wanting to keep your drinks as Paleo as possible then stick with wine, tequila, and potato vodka.  Forget the mixers.  Just filled with artificial junk and unnecessary calories.  Sip and enjoy that wine and spirits responsibly.  And remember never to drink and drive.

 Here is an easy and delicious Everyday Paleo Too Easy Chicken Adobo & Roasted Greens with Beets recipe to help you during this holiday season.  When you eat delicious and healthy food you will less likely want to overindulge in the other stuff.
