Wanting to invite people over after the holidays? Yes, it’s possible! All you need is a few adjustments to the regular method.  With a reduced number of guests and a meal that’s easy to prepare and, more importantly, not quite as rich as the delicious, but often very fatty, Christmas classics, you will find in yourself the enthusiastic host you once were.

You may not be able to take the “hectic” out of the holidays but you can follow a few tips to make them more relaxing and to allow yourself to enjoy quality family time. Talk About the Holiday Decisions in Advance Each family member has different expectations on how your holidays will go. Even small misunderstandings about what time you’re leaving for Grandma’s Christmas Eve can spark tension at a busy time. Both parents and kids should be clear on what is possible and what is not. Yes, the kids can have a movie marathon one night; no, they can’t refuse to go to grandma’s reception; and yes, both parents will take turns sleeping in. Show Your Gratitude Holidays can get tense because people start to feel unappreciated. Respond to each other more kindly and instead of feeling divided, the family will feel like a team. Thank the kids when they FINALLY finish signing Christmas cards and praise your mother-in-law’s efforts for making dinner for 12 in a cramped house—being grateful sets an example for the kids and diffuses tension that can build up. Make Chaos Fun Try and turn holiday mayhem into fun. Still packing the car and you’re(…)

Want to travel for the holidays but want to stay close to your family and don’t want to spend a fortune? Try a classic recipe from a foreign country, like this one for krumkakes. Take your taste buds on an adventure with these thin Christmas waffles from Norway. I replaced the traditional cardamom with a bit of orange zest and added some key lime yogurt to the whipped cream for more zing. What you get is rich and very aromatic, a perfect balance between exotic flavours and the ones we know and love.

The holidays are the perfect time to spoil ourselves. Let’s face it, the best gifts aren’t the ones we need but the ones we want. Personally, I love digging into tasty dishes, drinking eggnog while listening to “Silent Night” and “Jingle Bells,” spending time with the ones I love and celebrating. For a treat, try a candy cane frozen yogurt. A little bit between the fruit salad and yule log is just enough to bring us back to our childhoods. Go ahead and enjoy some before dancing into the wee hours of the night!

The holidays mean gatherings and celebrations with family and friends, happy hours after work, and other such occasions. All these events boost our spirits, but often have the opposite effect on our bodies. Is there anyone who can boast of never having had a little digestive discomfort during the holidays? Having digestive discomfort is not fun for anyone. To help you fully enjoy the holidays, here are a few tips that will let you feel good about your stomach. 1- Avoid skipping a meal. If you arrive at a gathering famished, chances are you will dive into the hors d’œuvres and buffet. As a result, you’ll eat to excess, and your digestion will be a bit more difficult. 2- Drink a lot of water. Water is crucial for the optimal functioning of your body. Drinking water will also help you eat less and reduce your alcohol intake if you alternate between drinking water and alcohol. During the holidays, add a couple of attractive bottles of water to your table to encourage your guests to hydrate properly! 3- Get active! Exercise is a must for a healthy digestive system. Take advantage of winter and your long days off to go outside(…)
