Your Chiropractor in Tracy, Mountain House & Manteca Offers Tasty Tips to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

It’s no secret that the quality of food you consume has an effect on your health and wellness. However, despite their best intentions, people often succumb to temptation and eat foods that are not so healthy during the holidays. Rushing around buying presents, preparing the home for guests and maintaining your regular work or school schedule can leave you with little time to think of healthy food choices. Your chiropractor in Tracy, Mountain House and Manteca wants to help you by offering some tips for healthier eating now that the holiday season is here.

Nutrition Tips for Wellness That You Can Start Using Today

The key to optimum health and wellness is making food choices with nutrition in mind. If you haven’t been paying much attention to the types of foods you typically consume, now is the time to eat more mindfully. 

The team at Valley Chiropractic Center knows that nutrition is as important as exercise and chiropractic treatment for our patients, so we offer the following tips:

Eat Vegetables with Every Meal

It’s easy to get more vitamins, minerals and other nutrients when you make a point of including vegetables in every meal. Add spinach to your omelet, for example, or have green beans with your lunch and start your dinner off with a big salad or bowl of hearty vegetable soup.

Avoid Buying and Keeping Junk Food at Home or in Your Office

One of the best ways to keep yourself on a healthier eating plan is to avoid tempting yourself with candy, cookies and other treats whose calories come primarily from processed sugar. Don’t tempt yourself with junk food left in the kitchen cupboard or drawer in your desk.

Examine Nutrition Labels Before Putting Items in Your Shopping Cart

Federally mandated nutrition labels on packaged foods sold in the United States provide all the information you need to make better choices at the market. Look for foods that have a balance of protein, fat, fiber and carbohydrates that match eating goals that you establish during your chiropractic appointment for nutritional counseling at our facilities.
