Studio 512

Puja Mistry, a registered dietitian with H-E-B, chatted with Rosie about going “back to basics” when it comes to approaching the holidays. She says, It’s good to stay grounded with some simple/applicable nutrition tips.  Keeping these in mind throughout our day-to-day, the upcoming holiday season, the continued pandemic – this can really provide some long-term gains.”

  • Hydration – ideally water!
    • Hydration plays a role in blood pressure, body temperature, and digestion
    • You should consume half your body weight in ounces as an estimate of water intake
    • Something to remember: fruits and vegetables can also be hydrating!
  • Movement
    • Doesn’t need to be formal exercise – it can be any form of activity! – jump rope, walking, hula hoop, dancing
    • Good for your body and mind
    • Can help us sleep better at night
  • Have a plan
    • Think about where your meals are coming from
    • Ask yourselves these questions – are most of my meals balanced? Do I plan to eat fruits/veg today?  Do I have all these ingredients in my home?
    • Don’t go at it alone – rely on your H-E-B Registered Dietitian team to help you come up with a plan!
