It’s that time of year again. Time to think about friends and family and time to indulge in love and companionship. The festive season means many things to may people but there is an opportunity for indulgence at this time of year – and that includes food and drink. However, there is a case to be made about how bad that indulgence can be for us. Fatty foods do more than just add to the fun and happiness – and add to our waistline: they can have serious effects on our health.
Ho, ho, how do you avoid overindulging?
There are ways to enjoy the festive season without adding to your waistline – or endangering your health. Fat is not your friend but there are recipes that can make this a joyous season, without the attendant health risks. With a bit of imagination, you can learn how how to cook delicious, healthy Xmas snacks.
Some great ideas for healthy Xmas snacks
Who does not enjoy pizza? No one. And Santa does not need milk and cookies – leave a healthy pizza snack for him. He needs that protein. He’s a busy man when Christmas Eve rolls around. Use wholewheat dough and store-bought pizza topping and make your own snack. It doesn’t have to be complicated but the cheese should be white cheddar or another low-fat variety – keep it lean and you’ll have the perfect topping.
What about something sweet? Living in Singapore means that you have access to some of the best fresh fruit in the world. Take for example bananas. Fry them up with a little sugar and you have the perfect treat. Add some marshmallows in the pan and you have a delight that will make both adults and children look forward to that morning when the presents are unwrapped.
There’s no reason that healthy snacks to munch on for Xmas cannot be a reality. There are fresh and healthy ingredients waiting out there. Fruit and vegetables are available at every market – all it takes to make the festive season a healthy delight is some thought.
