The holidays are great times of celebration but may leave us feeling a little over indulged. We are so busy during the hustle and bustle of the season that our healthy habits get pushed aside and we may find ourselves in a take out line. Here are some quick suggestions to keep you on track this time of year.

Eating out:

PANERA

You’ll have to make a number of modifications to what you order at Panera, but it’s not impossible to find a compliant meal. Your best bet is theGreen Goddess Club Salad with Chicken. Order it without the chicken, bacon, or dressing (you’re still left with eggs for protein and avocado for healthy fat). For something smaller, opt for the Seasonal Greens Salad without dressing.

CHIPOTLE

This one’s a favorite for people doing Whole30 (follow this exact format). If you stray, you’re in danger of breaking some diet rules: Order a bowl—no rice, no beans. Get carnitas. Add any salsa but the corn. Don’t you dare touch those fajita veggies—they’re cooked in bad oils. Get guac. Top it with extra greens.

WHOLE FOODS

Feel free to pop into the market when you’re out and about. The salad bar is full of fresh vegetables you can throw together. Just make sure to look at the ingredients on all of the labels to check for anything off-limits.
