It's that time of year when many of us will be attending Christmas parties thrown by friends, co-workers, and loved ones. While the urge to eat everything in sight may hit you, there are some things you can do to have a healthier time at that party.

Brenda Duby with United Supermarkets stopped by this week and offered a few tips to listeners. One tip from Duby is to never go to a party hungry. She suggested having a light salad before you go. Even better, be the person in charge of the salad and take it to the party.

Duby also suggested filling half your plate with salad or even fruit salad that way you won't over indulge. Check out all of Duby's great tips by watching the video above.
