    Nutrition Tip: Simple Ways to Make your Holiday Favorites Healthier

    Posted by Sport & Health on Dec 5, 2016 2:15:21 PM

    Despite our best intentions, keeping extra calories at bay over the holidays can become a full-time job! Between the holiday parties, cookie tins at the office and family gatherings, the temptation to indulge is ever-so-present. Avoid the traditional holiday weight gain with a few simple food swaps and holiday party strategies. 

    The Classic: Mashed Potatoes

    The Fix: Switch white potatoes out with nutrient-packed sweet potatoes. Serve mashed with a small dab of butter and cinnamon, or bake up some crispy cinnamon-dusted sweet potato rounds at 450 degrees for 25-35 minutes, depending on thickness. Want to cut the carbs further? Swap out the potatoes for mashed cauliflower. You can make them extra creamy by whipping them with a touch of cream cheese or heavy cream.

Or better yet, replace the potatoes with cauliflower! Want to go dairy-free? Skip the milk and cream altogether, replacing with chicken broth and a little bit of olive oil (1 tbsp olive oil for every 1/2 cup of chicken broth).

    Posted by Sport & Health on Nov 10, 2016 7:02:28 AM

    It's hard to deny the benefits of the classic push-up, but sometimes you just want to take it up a notch! 

    Sport&Health Trainer McKenna Smet met up with Good Morning Washington's Larry Smith to demonstrate how adding gliders to your push-up routine can help you build strength and endurance. 

    "There's a big difference between your abs and core," said Smet. "Your core is what braces you overall. If your core is not engaged while performing this move, you're really not going to reap the full benefits."
