Surprise surprise…Christmas and New Year’s is right around the corner, and here comes your dietitian trying to ruin it like always. “Don’t arrive hungry to a holiday party.” “Deny leftovers from hosts.” Blah blah blah.
Hopefully, this tip is a little more fun since it involves alcohol! Booze is the quintessential “empty calorie.” It adds calories to your diet but nothing else (except maybe a nice buzz).

If you’re looking for something a little fancier, here are some recipes to help you forget all about my healthy eating rules (even though you shouldn’t!).
