We should be getting five to seven servings a day of vegetables. One serving is about the size of your palm. Even as a nutritionist, I have to work hard at ensuring that I have a good intake of these nutrient dense foods every day.
My go-to recipe for a quick nutritious dessert. Chia Seed Berry Blast – packed with good fats, vitamins, iron, iodine, magnesium, manganese, niacin, thiamine, antioxidants and fibre.
I made this lovely dessert for a girlie gathering last year. It was a HIT! The only difference is that I made the raspberries into a jam and covered the whole cheesecake, garnished with a few berries and mint. It was so yummy.
This is a great way of staying hydrated and still enjoying a libation during the holiday period, particularly since many people don’t like the taste of plain water. Infused water is really easy to make and is a much better option than sugary fruit juices, sodas or artificial sweetened beverages.
Are we trying to live up to unrealistic expectations of creating a ‘perfect’ Christmas? Should we rather be keeping things simple and enjoying our time with our family and friends? Are we being sucked in by all those ‘fabulous’ marketing campaigns? Christmas is a tradition that is religious for some. For others it may be the time to have a well-deserved holiday.
