Playing How to Eat Healthy over the Holidays with Chef Stuart O'Keeffe

It is so easy to overeat during the holidays, and The Doctors share simple heating hacks to help you avoid overindulging.

Celebrity chef Stuart O’Keeffe says these tips will help keep your holiday meal in check and avoid starting off the new year with extra inches around your waistline. 

- Have a light meal or healthy snack before any small social distancing gathering.

- Use shaved Brussels sprouts for a bright festive and healthy salad and partner it with some protein.

- This is a no-brainer but leave the bread rolls alone.

- Take your time when eating, yes it’s a feast, but it’s not the last morsel of food you’ll ever eat. He finds eating slowly really helps and says to drink an 8-ounce glass of water before eating.

- If you want something sweet, maybe have a few bites to satisfy that craving… instead of the whole pie.

- When cooking, substitute butter for extra virgin olive oil when possible 

- Instead of heavy cream, mix low-fat milk with cornstarch or milk and Greek yogurt -- as cream swaps in soups and stews

Get chef Stuart's recipes for his Roasted Rainbow Carrots with Tarragon Dressing and his Holiday Chopped Salad with Winter Vegetables and Apple Cider Vinaigrette -- both are wonderfully healthy options to make during the holidays.
