As this is the month where we celebrate Christmas and being jolly along with giving ourselves the excuses to indulge in excess of 30,000 plus calories during the christmas week.
Here’s a brief guide to enjoy the Christmas lunch if the breakfast don’t send you to sleep before.
The sprout: No Christmas meals is complete without some Brussel sprout on the plate even though it has become a dare to most people who will eat it first, the might sprout itself contain protein which one cup is equals about 4gram, lots of vitamin A, potassium, calcium and folacin, and pack with fiber, even more reason to eat your veggies.
The Turkey: To balance out your high carbohydrate day of binging on treats, the turkey meats is lean as they come and pack full of protein, it’s said to contain Vitamin B6, which can help to boost your energy levels which no doubt on Christmas day you with need while not only preparing the meals but entertaining the family as well.
The Carrots: Apparently these little fellas help you see in the dark, but in all truth they do help maintain a healthy pair of eyes, there are another source of fiber, potassium, vitamin A,K AND C, apart from easy to digest and tasty, they are said to ward of some cancer.
The Cranberries and cranberry sauce: Apart from using the tasty flavours to get the kids to eat some turkey, these babies are packed with vitamin C and other antioxidants , Vitamin C is a nutrient that helps keep your immune system working efficiently and preventing illnesses from occurring especially in these winter months where people seem to get sick more easily, another benefits is proanthocyanidins a flavanols that is found in the cranberries which is said to help keep the urinary tract free of bacteria forming, which is always a plus.
The Alcohol, The Boose: Or whatever you want to call it, I’m sure no Christmas table would be without this to wash down the many treats throughout the day,There’s no point saying don’t drink, as many of you will fail to heed my warning, but then again depending and which medical studies you reference some red wine is either good or bad for you, the watch word hear would be balance, whatever that might mean to you as an individual, if you feel light head or punking up your lunch/dinner. I’m sure you have gone over your balance, either way have an awesome xmas and see you’ll in 2016 For some more Fun.
