Did you know that you don’t have to use an egg to get that same eggnog flavor in my vegan eggnog protein shake recipe? You still get all the traditional flavors of an eggnog recipe -nutmeg, cinnamon, and rum too.

I was inspired by my other festive holiday smoothie recipes. I love creating a new holiday smoothie recipe every year. Try my Gingerbread Cookie Spice Smoothie or my Frosted Sugar Cookie Smoothie recipe.

The Benefits Of Healthy Eating During The Holidays

The holidays are a time for family, friends, and of course, food. While it’s tempting to indulge in all your favorite comfort foods during this time, it’s important to remember the importance of healthy eating. By incorporating some healthy foods into your holiday diet, you can feel better both mentally and physically. Keep reading for a few tips on how to make healthy eating during the holidays easier than ever!

1. Improved mood and energy

Healthy foods that contain your lean protein and veggies provide your body with the nutrients it needs, which makes you and your body feel good! This means an improved mood and the energy you need to get through the holidays and into the New Year.

2. Heart health

Cutting back on all those foods we often over-indulge in during the holidays, and substituting with healthier options, is great for cardiovascular health. Proper nutrition helps maintain a good blood pressure level and reduces the risk of heart attack or stroke.

3. Improved memory

Yes! Foods that help your heart also help your brain. Maintaining a healthy diet can help keep your memory sharp and also keep signs of dementia completely at bay.

4. Weight loss

Obviously, a huge benefit of eating healthy through the holidays can result in weight loss (instead of the usual holiday weight gain we’ve all experienced before)! Eating a diet with plenty of nutrients and fiber can help you feel fuller longer, thus eating fewer calories, and leading to weight loss. You’ll also be much less likely to indulge in sweets if you’re feeling full via the essential nutrients!

5. Cancer prevention

According to reports, eating a healthy diet may relate to cancer prevention. This is because eating healthy can also prevent obesity, which is directly linked to a higher risk of cancer. Fruits, veggies, and nuts are some foods that can also help lower the risk of liver and colorectal cancers, specifically.

Healthy eating is a necessity during the holidays, but it doesn’t have to be hard. With some planning and creativity, you can enjoy your favorite holiday staples, while also being mindful of what’s going into your body. I hope you enjoyed this blog post on the benefits of healthy eating during the holidays. If you know someone who could benefit from these tips, please share it with them! Happy Holidays and all the best in the New Year to you and your family.
