At this time of the year it is much more difficult than others to stick to healthy eating! With parties, festivities, and traditions mostly centred on an abundance of delicious treats, snacks, and meals, it’s difficult not to overindulge! Although we can’t always stay away from all the temptations, we can try and include some healthy options over the next few weeks.
Here are some tips, tricks, and fun ideas to help you stick to healthy eating:
1. When you are going to be out and about Christmas shopping, running errands, or attending umpteen parties, plan ahead and never leave the house without a healthy snack. Things such as homemade energy balls or bars, nuts and seeds, fruit and cheese, or veggies and hummus can make for great, and filling, snacks.
2. On Christmas day, have a balanced and healthy breakfast including some fruit and protein. Making a yummy breakfast Christmas morning can be healthy and fun, like whole grain pancakes shaped as a reindeer or santa face with fruit as toppings.
