Do you remember your mom’s rule to “not talk with your mouth full”? Bring that old adage back in style this holiday season. First, eat a fresh, healthy meal before you arrive at the party or get-together. Not only will you be less likely to munch on unhealthy snacks, but you’ll have more time to really connect with your loved ones. Once you’re talking and laughing with friends and family, you’ll find that you’re not consuming as much food. By the end of the day, you’ll have gained many cherished memories, and fewer pounds.
