It is that time again….as the festivities flow, we find ourselves amidst a plethora of treats. There are parties to attend where we swim through a sea of savoury appies, sweet cocktails and decadent desserts. There are people to see, and many drinks to be had. The baking is all around us, and the family dinners are abundant. With so many functions during such a whirlwind of a time, how does one stay healthy?
Don’t worry – you can have fun without getting whisked away into a world of gluttony and inactivity. I am here with you. Together, we can make it through the holidays and into the new year.
My approach? Keep it simple – I say!!!
One trick that really works for me is the ‘big’ salad. Whether it be for lunch or dinner, you can whip it up real quick, and pack if full with protein and greens! Your protein of choice will keep your hungry at bay, and the veggies will pump you up with the vitamins and minerals you need especially at this time of year.
Really, all you need is a simply protein, lots of greens, and whatever other veggies you like. Here is a sample to get you off and running.
