Healthy Alternatives to Unhealthy Holiday Favorites



The holidays are the time of the year to indulge in your favorite delectable home-cooked meals. There’s nothing like enjoying a warm plate of chili, pot roast or whatever your favorite holiday meal may be - and after all, the holidays wouldn’t be the same without comfort food.

But all too often, our favorite comfort dishes are the ones that contain the most calories, refined sugars and other unhealthy ingredients that cause us to put on weight. Ignoring that plate of scrumptious brownies or delicious pot roast is especially hard when you are flooded with holiday food everywhere you go during the season.

Luckily, staying healthy and on track with your weight loss goals doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself of delicious food. In fact, complete restriction of certain foods is the primary reason people fall off the wagon and throw their diets out the window. It is imperative that you allow yourself to indulge in your favorite foods every once in a while if you want to stay on track with your health goals.

So go ahead and indulge in all of your favorite traditional dishes with the large variety of healthy alternatives available here at Bariatric Direct. They will help you get through the holidays without putting on that dreaded seasonal weight.

Our delicious homestyle chicken noodle soup is the perfect dish to nourish you when you’re dealing with a cold. Ward off the winter blues with our creamy tomato soup that will help you warm up on a cold and gloomy day. Try our delicious turkey chili with beans to add a whopping 22 grams of lean protein to your diet! Delight in one of our rich and savory beef pot roast with gravy and vegetables meals. This protein-packed dish only has 3 grams of added sugar and will leave you feeling full until your next meal.

We also have your favorite scrumptious holiday sweets available in a healthier, low-sugar version. Our sweet fudge brownie squares contain only 4 grams of added sugar but 15 grams of protein, making them even healthier than many protein bars. Pair any of our desserts with your favorite holiday drinks like our pumpkin spice latte and our marshmallow hot chocolate, which only contain 4 and 3 grams of sugar respectively.

Creating long-lasting weight loss results requires you to develop healthy habits, such as replacing your favorite meals with healthy alternatives. This is a small yet crucial change that is bound to deliver results and help you get one step closer to achieving your health or fitness goals. Whether you are following a diet to lose weight, gain muscle or improve your health, our holiday alternatives will help you every step of the way.

As always, remember to limit your sugar intake and increase your protein intake so you’ll feel full for longer and have less of a tendency to nibble on unhealthy foods. Having the self-discipline to eat healthily doesn’t have to be a challenge. With a wide variety of healthy alternatives to all of your holiday favorites, there’s no reason your diet should feel restricted this holiday season.

So go ahead and indulge in all of your favorite holiday dishes without having to worry about a calorie guilt-trip. You shouldn’t have to sacrifice comfort food for your health - and with all the right resources at your disposal, staying healthy during the holidays can be a breeze. Don’t wait until the New Year to come up with a weight-loss plan. At Bariatric Health & Wellness, we can help you get a head start on your health goals today!
