Healthy Christmas traditions
Create healthy traditions
This year why not adopt a new healthy family tradition that you can continue for years to come? Here are three ideas to get started with, this Christmas.
1. Go for a family walk
After opening presents, head outside for a walk around the neighbourhood. If you’ve got little ones, tell them you’re looking for Santa’s sleigh. (You never know what you might find!)
2. Start with a nutritious breakfast
You know you’ve got a big day of celebrating ahead, so make sure brekkie is healthy. Try a fruit salad with yoghurt, poached eggs on toast with spinach, or a bowl of muesli to set you up for the day ahead.
3. Go for a swim after lunch
Find time during your busy Christmas Day to go for a dip. Maybe you can hit the beach first thing in the morning or find time at the end of your busy day to unwind. Either way, a dip in the ocean or backyard pool is the ideal way to squeeze in some fun activity.
Tricks to staying on track this Christmas
Parties, parties, parties means food, food, food! Make your choices easier by bringing your own salad and dessert – helping your host and your health!
2. Give your guests leftovers
If you’re hosting on Christmas Day, keep containers handy for doggy bags when your visitors leave to minimise temptation from all the leftovers.
3. Enjoy treats!
We know that deprivation can, at times, lead to a overeating, so track ahead and factor in your favourite foods – a little is better than none!
