Shop for a tender Christmas chicken or turkey because duck and goose are not soft and require a long process to cook and have more fat thus not suitable for the occasion. Not forgetting it is Christmas season, and so eating healthy is the order of the day. Fresh fruits, vegetables, and salads are part of the meals to be served on that day as these are high in vitamins and fiber.
Beginning the day with breakfast is a good kick start of the special Christian holiday since the day involves lots of activities before the main meal is served. Breakfast will provide the body with the energy needed and boasts the metabolism for the better part of the day. Sneaking in an unhealthy snack before lunch is served should not be experienced if a well-balanced breakfast is taken as the first meal of the day. A cereal with low sugar and low-fat milk or yogurt and fruit full of high fiber will do the morning trick.
Once the main meal is served as lunch or dinner, it is a noble idea to engage the family in other outdoor activities to burn out the excess calories gained. How about a walk or bike riding? It is fun when the whole family is involved since it brings out the family reunion well. Pick games that children will enjoy to play along. Play with the children after the meals as this can help burn off the excess calories as well.
Don’t forget leftovers are still important for the next day meal. Creative cooking and recipes will come in handy with the leftovers. Surprise the family with a different meal made from the leftover. Christmas ends with everyone healthy, and thus definitely the New Year will begin with fewer trips to the doctor and the gym.
