Try to take the focus off food around the holiday season. Create new traditions with your family and friends that do not center around meals or treats. Here are a couple ideas, share your favorite non-food holiday traditions in the comments!
- Turn candy and cookie making time into making non-edible projects, like wreaths, gingerbread houses (pick candy you aren't tempted by!), or other fun holiday decorations (think pinterest here!)
- Plan group activities with family and friends that don't center around treats or a meal. Try ice skating, sledding, serving a holiday meal to the community, looking at Christmas lights, games, or caroling!
- Other activities could include building a snowman, watching a Christmas movie, volunteering a food bank, or decorating the tree! Be creative, and make this holiday season one to remember :)
