Jill’s Top 10 Holiday Eating Tips

  1. Follow my PFF Rule™ (include Protein, Fat, & Fiber in every meal to feel satiated).
  2. Begin your meal with raw food (even just a bite or two); the live enzymes in raw food help promote digestion.
  3. Use a small plate; a full plate will be less food.
  4. Give yourself rules before you get to a party (i.e. having just one drink, just one plate, etc.)
  5. Start with veggies, lean meat, etc, leave bread for last (or avoid altogether).
  6. Bring along a healthy dish like hummus & colorful veggies displayed on dark green lettuce leaves.  It’s healthy and looks great!
  7. Eat slowly (food digests better and you’ll feel full sooner).
  8. Put your fork down between bites.
  9. Take time to converse with others; you will probably eat less food.
  10. Avoid overdoing it on alcohol and fancy drinks which contain sugar and tons of calories.


The holidays are a time of celebrating with those we love.  They are time of sharing old memories and making new ones.  They are a time of love and joy.  However, as the holidays approach, many people start to feel anxious as they recall their past experiences of overeating and weight gain.  Here are my tips so you can enjoy the holiday season without guilt…and without sabotaging your weight and health!



(blend all ingredients till smooth)

  • 1-16 oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 Tblsp. lemon juice
  • 1 ½ Tblsp. tahini
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • ½ tsp. Himalayan salt
  • 2 T olive oil

Great as a dip for veggies or tortilla chips!
