Dietary tips for the holiday season

The holidays for most are associated with rich meals, lots of sweets and alcohol consumption, thus resulting in weight gain of around 1-2 kilos on average.

Research has shown that these pounds are usually not lost after the holidays, so they just keep adding on each year.

This year, take the opportunity to think about which of the festive table delicacies you could skip and what it is that you really want to enjoy. Avoid trying all the delicacies and opt for the ones that are really worth it for you. For example, choose foods and sweets that are e.g. homemade or specially made and try to limit snacking.

The following will also help you:

Start the day with a balanced, nutritious breakfast, such as a cup of whole-grain breakfast cereal and a small apple with a little cinnamon or a toast with whole-grain bread, cheese, tomato, and a glass of natural orange juice. Eating fruit will help you manage any hypoglycemia.

Dried fruits (dates, figs, plums, apricots) are a delicious and nutritious snack.

Combine the fruit with a few nuts (almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts, cashews, etc.) for greater satiety.

Melomakarona and apple pie are the most appropriate sweet choices, as they have the fewest calories compared to other seasonal sweets, and a lower amount of saturated lipids.
