Q. How do I stay in control of my holiday eating?

Make a plan to stay organized and “in control” this holiday season by:

-- Keep a running list of errands, groceries and gifts. Plan to finish as many things in fewer trips
-- Grocery shop when full or stash healthy snacks in car or purse like nuts, whole grain crackers or dried fruit to eat before entering store. Shopping on an empty stomach and without a list can lead to unhealthy and more food purchases.
