Well this time of year it all seems like party party party. Chocolates and mince pies going round the office and not a healthy piece of food in sight. It can get a bit overwhelming so I'm here to give you a few tips on how to stay well balanced and make the right choices over the festive period. I'm not saying don't eat them at all and stay well away. No of course you can't do that. Being healthy means making the right choices but also not depriving yourself of a treat every now and again. You are the one in control of what you put in your mouth. We'll start with breakfast. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Do you remember your parents saying that everyday, well it's actually true. You body has been starved for 12 hours or slightly less because of your sleep. Where as during the day, you probably eat every 3 - 4 hours or so. Once you are awake, your body needs good fuel to function. Think of it like a car, you wouldn't put diesel in a petrol car as that would not work. So your body is the same. You need to good foods to help you fuel your body for the day ahead. Your body needs protein and good carbohydrates. For example Porridge (carbohydrates) with your choice of milk, a spoonful of nut butter (protein) a sprinkling of seeds (I love Chia seeds) and some fresh fruit (fibre) on top. I also mix 2 squares of 100% dark chocolate for my chocolate fix. Good carbohydrates are a slow release energy source so will keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Happy Holidays and Enjoy. Remember Its All About Balance.
