you know the festive season has begun and there are many Christmas lunches with extremely tempting foods that are overloaded with calories.
To avoid looking like Father Christmas in January, I have put together some guidelines for you to make healthier choices when deciding on what to eat over this time:
You can make your roasts in a kettle braai instead of cooking them in the oven with lots of oil or basting. If you are cooking beef or lamb then cut off all visible fat and if you are cooking chicken then remove the skin before it is cooked.
Use herbs and spices instead of salt to season food.
Try to eat most of your vegetables raw. If vegetables are cooked use only a small amount of water and little salt. Do not add margarine, cream, oil or sugar when cooking vegetables.
If you are eating salads instead of vegetables then eat them without salad dressings and mayonnaise or make a dressing using low fat plain yoghurt and herbs.
When it comes to your desserts try and pick a lower fat option. For example, make your trifle with sponge cake, homemade custard without sugar, fresh fruit and leave the cream out or use fat free or low-fat cream. You could also make fresh fruit salad with fat free or low-fat yoghurt. Otherwise, if you insist on eating your favourite Christmas pudding try avoid having any cream or ice cream with it.
And lastly, exercise Try to exercise at least three times a week for at least half an hour at a time.
