At Evolve Paleo Chef, we want to make living Paleo as simple and enjoyable as possible; we want you to love the food you are eating and also love providing your body with the best nutrition available. We’ve got a few survival tips to help you make it through the holidays without losing total control and keep in mind that if you live in the Kansas City area, Evolve Paleo is offering holiday catering to provide you with totally Paleo, gluten, sugar, and dairy free main courses and side dishes.

Make Your Own Food

Or, you can offer to be the host of the get-together this year and you can be entirely in charge of the majority of the menu. Even if you can’t stop your grandma from bringing her famous stuffing, you will know that there will be plenty of Paleo options for you. Try making a Paleo-style version of that delicious stuffing recipe with Evolve’s Paleo Bread!

Don’t Expect Perfection

If you’re going to be successful in staying on the right track this holiday season, you must accept that you may give into temptation, and it will be okay. If you plan out a small cheat beforehand, you will be more likely to eat something that you really love and be satisfied than if you deprive yourself and then pig out on carbs and desserts when you can’t resist any longer.

Consider spending more time at the gym, whether you increase the frequency or duration of your workouts so that you can stay ahead of the extra food you’ll be eating over the season. Boost your protein intake to help make your workouts more effective with Evolve’s delicious beef jerkies!

Find a Buddy

Chances are, you have a family member who is also trying to stick to a healthier lifestyle through the holidays. It’s much easier to take on a nagging or nosy family when you have someone else to weather the storm with you. Finding someone who shares your pain and can sympathize with you will help you feel better and will help you avoid temptation.
