7 Christmas day traditions

 

This year adopt a new healthier tradition that you can continue for years to come. Here are a few ideas to get started in time for 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 the day with a nutritious breakfast

 

You know you’ve got a big day of celebrating ahead, so make sure your breakfast 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. Check out our healthy breakfast recipes for inspiration.

 

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.

 

4. BYO plate

 

Parties, parties, parties means food, food, food! Make your choices easier by bringing your own salad and dessert – helping your host and your health! Try one of our party perfect recipes.

 

5. Give your guests the leftovers

 

If you’re hosting on Christmas Day, keep containers handy for doggy bags when your visitors leave to minimise mindless eating with all the leftovers.

 

6. Track ahead for Christmas day

 

We know that deprivation can lead to overeating, so track ahead and factor in your favourite foods and drinks. Plan ahead how many drinks you'll have and spread them out over the day. Feel like something sweet for Christmas day? Check out our Christmas dessert ideas.
