    Tip of the Week:

    Plan ahead for holiday gatherings!  Holiday celebrations can mean a lot of food and temptation.  Planning ahead for such events can make a big difference with blood sugar control.  Consider these tips before your next gathering.
    • If eating a little too much is inevitable, balance with increasing exercise for the day.
    • Visit with friends and family away from the food spread to avoid continuous nibbling.
    • Plan for one food trip, using a plate, so you have control over the amount eaten.
    • Contribute to the food spread with a few safe bet, healthier options.  For example, bring along a vegetable tray, diet soda, or other low carbohydrate beverages to enjoy.
    • If you choose to consume alcohol, do so in moderation and be aware that alcohol and drink mixes add extra calories.

    Plan ahead and enjoy the holidays!
