The holiday season is here and for most of us that means Thanksgiving dinners, Christmas parties, New Year's celebrations...which means food, food, and more food! Not to mention that with more to pack into our already busy schedules, who has time for exercise?
Keeping up with healthy habits has benefits for your whole body - like helping to avoid holiday weight gain, helping to fend off holiday stress and fatigue, and helping to keep your immune system strong. Many people give up on healthy habits during the holidays but with these tips you can teach your children how to stay healthy during this busy time of year.
There's no need to compromise on quality, flavor or abundance this Christmas if you're on a budget, our chef shares top tips for cutting costs. It's the most wonderful time of the year-yet many of us have a sense of impending dread at the thought of having to cook a fabulous Christmas dinner. TV chefs woo us with mini tartlets and smoked salmon blini that can be prepared "in minutes" and add "a touch of sophistication" to your festive cooking. Meanwhile, every supermarket has their own glossy magazine full of cooking and decorating ideas. They can provide you pre-prepared mini tartlets and blini (but with a hefty price tag) that you only need to "pop in the oven."  

The options are endless and dizzying. Somewhere along the way, the concept of a tasty home cooked meal shared with the people you love gets lost, replaced by panic and over complication. If this all sounds familiar, then maybe my tips for a stress-free Christmas dinner can help get you back on track.
Christmas Cooking Tips

Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. And I'll admit it; I'm one of those annoying people who start humming Christmas songs as soon as Halloween is over. Although I try to keep it to when I'm alone so that I don't drive everyone else crazy! But I can't help it. It's just such a wonderful holiday. I love everything about it - the spirit of giving, the lights, the magic and wonder, the prettily wrapped presents, and of course, the food! Christmas food is a real treat. We all have our own special recipes for Christmas dinner that we only make that one time of year. And the anticipation just makes them even better.

But if you want a perfect Christmas, having a good collection of recipes for Christmas dinner isn't enough. If you've ever suddenly found yourself in charge of the whole Christmas food production, you know that it's not easy at all. Christmas dinner takes a lot of planning and organization, and when you don't have years of experience under your belt, sometimes it can be a little tough. But don't worry. There are a lot of ways to make sure you have an awesome and relaxing Christmas dinner. So read on for some tips and advice. I'll talk about how to organize your time and plan out your meal ahead of time.

Help kids set a goal to choose healthy snacks during the holiday season, and join them in meeting the challenge!
