WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS……WE WISH YOU A MERRY CHRISTMAS LOADED WITH CHOCHOLATES AND TOFEES, CAKES AND PASTERIES AND MORE AND MORE OF DELICIOUS FOOD ITEMS WELL IN ADVANCE.
Christmas is all about fancy food items!!!! Though, what about your health? What about your gym fit abs? What about you’re perfectly sketched shape? But Christmas without all these food items, sounds a bit impossible. Worried? How about some healthy tips to follow this Christmas without losing on the fun?
To all the fitness freak, ladies and gentlemen here’s an answer to all your worries, this is how you can enjoy your favourite Christmas snack and still avoid putting on weight:
1) Craving for muffins – But too much chocolate and cream is bad for those curves, keep calm just pick any bananas left in the fruit basket add a handful of dark chocolate chips and enjoy a fibre-rich treat.
2) Cookies – Just give your chocolate chip cookies a healthy update by cutting back on sugar and incorporating whole grains. To increase protein, replace the rolled oats with a cup of almond meal.
3) Cake – The essential of a Christmas party but what about extra calories, added sugars and cholesterol, chill let’s make this healthy, whisk all-purpose flour or whole-wheat flour, whichever suits you better, granulated sugar as per your taste (however go light on the sugar), cocoa, two tablespoon baking powder, one tablespoon baking soda, pumpkin pie, spice and salt in a medium bowl and bake it and get ready to relish the yummy treat of a heart healthy, high fibre and low sodium cake.
4) Try a creamy avocado toast – Avocado toast is basically the simplest recipes in the world to make and good for you thanks to avocado’s plentiful omega-3. It is like nature’s butter and it tastes so delicious, you would feel like love at first bite.
A simple avocado toast is just a toast+ avocado+ sea salt+ red pepper. But that’s just the beginning; you can top it with egg, a drizzle of nice olive oil, or try this avocado+ feta+ pomegranate toast for a sweet and savoury mix. The options are endless. Go crazy. Run free.
5) Mocktails are the new cocktails – This Christmas give up on alcoholic drinks and add some healthy non-alcoholic drinks like:
- Watermelon lemonade with kiwifruit splash: This concoction is packed with fresh watermelon and kiwi, so everyone can get in some of their daily servings of fruit while keeping cool and refreshed.
- Strawberry-citrus slush: This slush bears no resemblance to the regular, saccharine frozen drinks you might get at the corner store. The flavours of grapefruit, lemon, ginger, and strawberry combine for a unique, crowd- pleasing slush.
- Virgin merry mimosas: This version of a mimosa is too good not to mention. In order to make this berry and orange drink safe for kids and destined drivers, replace the champagne with sparkling grape juice.
- Iced vanilla soy latte: These espresso-based drinks will provide a mild caffeine buzz for the get together. Also, in our opinion, they’re much better than the popular coffee house version, and much less expensive when making a relatively large quantity.
It isn’t that difficult also to enjoy your favourite food in a healthy way. Just fasten your cooking capes and get into the kitchen to bake your favourite healthy dishes this Christmas.
So ladies find love in healthy dishes not love handles on your bodies and all the gym boys let your abs and food both is in place. Drink lots of water before eating so you don’t stuff yourself with extra food.
Apart from this concentrate more on having fun rather than on food. Christmas gatherings are more than just food so go around decorating your house with beautiful stuff, try out new dresses, fill the house with beautiful lights and decorative items, bring in new music be the dancing star and shed some more of your calories, discover or invent new games, catch up with family and friends and enjoy a healthy dose of love and laughter.
HAVE A HEALTHY LITTLE CHRISTMAS.
