Christmas season is the time for eating, drinking, eating…. and more eating. We love all the festive feasting that happens at Christmas time and during the holidays but we must admit that it can be hard to do up the jeans after so many Christmas dinners with the family.
We want to help you stay healthy through the silly season with some delicious and nutritious recipe ideas.
Instead of cooking the traditional Christmas Turkey with all the rich extras, we have a few healthy Christmas recipe ideas, perfect for Christmas dinner or lunch. Christmas dinner can still be tasty, nourishing and healthy – you don’t have to stick with the ‘traditional’ meals that you have every year – instead choose something that is good for you and the family, and that you won’t feel guilty for eating!
Plus it makes way for delicious Christmas deserts, and all the Christmas drinks.
