Today we're answering the following question from a listener: "I want to know how nutritionists/RDs navigate all those holiday parties that are brimming booze and not-so-healthy foods. Can you two offer some tips based on things you personally do to enjoy yourself without totally overdoing it? For example, what do you eat/drink beforehand, if anything, to help prevent bloating or prevent you from overeating when you get there? What healthy-ish snacks or types of snacks do you primarily try to nosh on? What select indulgences do you choose eat and how do you personally avoid bingeing on them? What might you do post-party if you're feeling a little fuller or more bloated than you'd like to be?" It's that time of year where holiday parties are happening weekly and the opportunity to indulge - or go overboard - is around every corner.
