December tends to fly by in a hazy, snowy swirl of glitter, sugar, and boozy eggnog. Bringing a little mindfulness to the last half of the month lets you celebrate without falling victim to that gnarly January hangover. Let me help you ring in the New Year with the ultimate holiday food-swap chart, great last-minute gifts, and more. Happy holidays! — Stephanie

The holiday season is synonymous with over indulging. We all fear the holiday weight gain, yet at the same time don't want to restrict ourselves during those delicious parties and family feasts.

Even the tiniest of adjustments can make a world of difference. Whether that's making good choices during the day to better enjoy the evening festivities or improvising on holiday favorites to make them a bit more health friendly. That's why I've developed a pretty intensive chart for healthy holiday food swaps.
