LiveWell Colorado's Becky Karlin stopped by the 9NEWS studios to share ideas from healthy recipes to gifts that get you moving.
Check out the video or visit the website for all LiveWell Colorado's healthy holiday ideas: http://movement.livewellcolorado.org/join_the_movement/feature/healthy-holidays.
Here are few fun facts from LiveWell Colorado, a local nonprofit, focused on reducing obesity and promoting healthy lifestyle choices:
- The average American gains 5 to 7 pounds during the holidays. Small behavioral changes like eating healthier and staying active can add up and make a big difference this time of year.
- Looks matter. By making food pretty and festive, your family and guest won't even realize they are eating healthy. Can you say, "Cucumber Christmas tree?"
- If you're looking for gifts, choose healthier options that promote eating veggies, cooking more homemade meals, and being active.
