Greenville, NC (PRWEB) December 20, 2012
Carolina Women's Physicians, a leading gynecological and obstetric practice in Greenville, North Carolina, recently offered healthy eating tips for women during the holiday season. The practice recommends pre-planning meals in advance, eating before shopping, trying new, healthful foods and making careful choices at holiday gatherings.
Carolina Women's Physicians suggests that women plan ahead by making a daily or weekly menu in advance. They recommend that patients always have healthy basics on hand by freezing fruits and vegetables and stocking the pantry with soups, whole grain pasta, brown/wild rice, oatmeal and healthful snacks, such as nuts, dried fruit and string cheese.
The staff at Carolina Women's Physicians also says that women should eat before heading to the grocery store and take along a healthy snack. Pregnant women and women of all ages should select fresh foods that are rich in vitamins and minerals, stick to the list of ingredients for pre-planned meals and only select "extras" that have a healthy benefit.
"Maybe you have always been diet conscious, or maybe you try not think about it," said Dr. Jennifer Ferguson, owner of Carolina Women's Physicians. "The holidays will be filled with healthy, but mostly, not so healthy treats always in front of you, so load up on lots of healthy, fresh foods to help manage your pregnancy diet!"
Carolina Women's Physicians also recommends choosing wisely at holiday parties and selecting a limited amount of goodies from the holiday spread. Carolina Women's Physicians offers a wealth of resources and tools to help patients maintain a healthy holiday diet before, during and after pregnancy. To schedule an appointment or to ask any holiday pregnancy questions, call Carolina Women's Physicians at (252) 355-7805.
