This is clearly due to the huge amount of calories consumed during the main dinner Christmas Eve and New Year, mostly from foods with sugar, fat and refined flour.
However, there are a variety of healthy foods you can choose and that will make a great favor to your body and overall health.
Top 5 healthy foods to eat on Christmas
Chestnuts like most nuts are a high source of healthy fats, which are necessary for the proper functioning of our body. They are also high in Vitamin C, vitamin that can boost your immune system. You can also eat almonds or walnuts. All these can consume in the natural or roasted.
- Blueberry (blue or red)
Blueberries are one of the best fruits for fat burning. They are a delicious source of antioxidants, which among other benefits will help prevent heart disease, improve blood circulation, prevent cancer and lower the levels of bad cholesterol and raise good cholesterol levels. All you can eat in their natural form, in natural juice (unsweetened) or even can do (or buy) a cranberry sauce, also natural.
Being one of the dishes prepared by these dates, turkey is an excellent choice. Good source of protein with low percentages of fat (especially if you stir the skin), and is more healthy to whether we choose pork, ham or beef. The turkey also provides selenium, a mineral that acts as antioxidant helping to enhance the immune system. Also provides niacin and vitamin B6, both vitamins essential for energy metabolism. That if careful with sauces that go to make up, the more natural, the better. A good idea: Make a chili con meat turkey.
- Sweet Potato
The sweet potato is one of the best vegetables in the field of weight loss. It is an excellent source of vitamin A, vitamin B, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, iron and fiber addition. Fiber is an excellent way to keep you going during the day, you get to golosear avoiding or overeating. You can infinicad of sweet potato dishes, one of which is the Cajun Sweet Potato.
- Green beans
The green beans / green beans / green beans / green beans (my god how many names!) Are low in calories and also come loaded with nutrients. They are an excellent source of vitamin C, K and manganese vitamin. In addition they also provide vitamin A, fiber, potassium and especially protein, which make it an excellent source of protein for vegetarians. A healthy way to eat them? I think chopped green beans with carrots are a simple and excellent choice.
If you already have weight problems or dream to take away some kilos off, take care this holiday season. If you abuse or eat like it’s the last in December of your life, you’ll be much further to meet those goals.
And if you’re overweight, then avoid them! Those extra pounds you can win at this time may be the beginning of a life of overweight.
