The holidays can be a challenging time to stay focused with healthy eating habits. Being armed with a good set of recipes will help you make it through without giving in to pressure and temptation.
Houston, TX (PRWEB) November 29, 2011
Montgomery Heart & Wellness has reinvented the holiday season with a new set of heart-healthy recipes. The featured recipes, available for free at the Montgomery Heart & Wellness website, include cornbread dressing, Portobello “turkey”, sweet potato casserole and cranberry sauce. Each of these recipes is in accordance with Dr. Montgomery’s food classification system, which includes a diet to prevent and reverse heart disease.
Heart disease patients struggle each year with the temptations and family pressures associated with holiday meals. Dr. Montgomery encourages his patients to bring their own dishes when attending holiday events. There are two benefits to doing this. First, they have something that they can eat so that they don’t appear to be excluding themselves from the occasion. Secondly, their dish may help others to see that there are delicious, healthy alternatives to the standard holiday fare.
Dr. Montgomery has been educating patients for years on how to make the necessary lifestyle changes to prevent and reverse heart disease. He has developed a Nutritional Boot Camp that gives participants the education, tools, recipes and support they need to adopt the habits of eating for optimal health. A key part of this program is understanding and dealing with the social factors behind eating. Dr. Montgomery emphasizes that it is important not to avoid the family dinners or business lunches. The social aspects of eating are an important part of our lives. Also, for a lifestyle change of healthy eating to be sustainable, it has to work in everyday life. For this reason, Dr. Montgomery devotes a significant part of the Nutritional Boot Camp to sharing recipes and giving tips for eating at restaurants.
