Temptation is all around during the holiday season: shortbread cookies, eggnog, cheese platters, and more. And this makes sticking to your healthy diet tougher than usual. Of course, having one buttery canape won’t kill your diet (it’s all about balance, right?) but you know how it goes: with it in front of you, you may devour the whole plate of them! Or pick at the spread of food while sipping cocktails all night, when you weren’t even hungry to begin with.
