How to Avoid “Gut Rut” and Wholesome Foods For Holiday Entertaining

The food that will be consumed this holiday season often times leaves the stomach in a horrible not. The high fats, carb, and sugary food can throw off digestion for weeks to come. It is important to take steps to protect your stomach and limit any discomfort that will come with holiday eating. There are ways to keep your body healthy and enjoy a fun and festive holiday season. If snacking is on your agenda, then eat pistachios and your body will thank you. They offer tons of nutrients and will promote good digestion. Also putting together foods and drinks that look festive, but are still healthy is possible. Something like pomegranate juice can be used to make beautiful drinks, that will deliver what your body needs.

I really need my whole strength to discipline myself not to eat too much this holiday season. It is very tempting as mouth-watering food says 'hi' on the table. I just hope I will have enough temperance to say no to overeating this holiday and I really want to thank HealthStatus for this post! I will sure to include pistachios on my meal and will consider my stomach first to avoid future discomfort. Very worth the share!
