In this article we will tell you different tips to maintain a healthy diet during the holidays.
Since the beginning of December we are already celebrating and partying. Whether it’s with our co-workers, family or friends, every gathering is an occasion to come together and celebrate.
With so many gatherings, it is easy to overindulge in food and drink.
Excessive consumption of sugars, flour, salt or alcohol can lead to general discomfort and gastric problems.
Healthy eating is important throughout the year, especially during the holiday season.
Plan your meals
Having a varied diet that includes fruits, vegetables, legumes, meats, etc. is one of the keys to keep our body active and functioning optimally.
We recommend that you maintain a healthy diet for all meals that do not include celebrations.
If you avoid altering the rest of your routine, you reduce the discomfort of the excesses of the holidays.
Remember to always have fresh, washed and ready-to-eat vegetables at home.
Celebrate with a variety of foods
Traditions are traditions, and we don’t want to take nougat and sweets off the Christmas table.
Instead we propose you to generate more variety on the tray: add nuts, fresh fruit or homemade sweets and you will see how everyone enjoys it.
There are more and more options for healthy snacks, one of our favorites is hummus with carrot, celery or cucumber sticks.
Every celebration has its toast, an occasion for new wishes.
If you are going to increase your consumption of alcoholic beverages during the holidays, remember that they are a major source of calories, as well as having consequences for the rest of your body.
Staying hydrated during this time is key to help our body purge the excesses and ensure proper functioning.
We suggest adding a pitcher of water to every table so you have easy access and can alternate a glass of water with the more caloric beverages such as soft drinks or alcoholic beverages.
Prevents bloating and poor digestion
People who often experience digestive difficulties, such as meteorism, stomach pain, indigestion or colic, usually resort to traditional medicine to alleviate their discomfort. However, there are medicinal plants that offer excellent results in these cases.
The most common causes of indigestion include eating too much or too fast, high fat foods, excessive consumption of caffeine and alcohol, nervousness and even emotional trauma.
Here are some natural products to alleviate digestive difficulties.
Oral aromatherapy: Digestion by Terpenic Lab, capsules containing 100% pure organic essential oils. Peppermint facilitates digestion, and Basil and Red Mandarin soothe bloating and constipation.
If you suffer from poor digestion with pain of varying intensity in the pit of your stomach, heaviness and heartburn, you may have an altered microbiota. In this case probiotics are very useful to improve the functioning of your digestive system.
Fennel, a natural digestive, helps to combat abdominal bloating, as it acts on the formation of gas in the intestine.
Whether it is real indigestion or simply poor digestion with the consequent pains, ginger is considered a real cure because it calms the stomach and relaxes the muscles, which facilitates regular intestinal transit.
Perform a cleansing
Despite maintaining a healthy diet during the holidays, our body may feel heavy or tired.
Intoxications, even if to a lesser extent, influence not only our physical body, but also our mood and our mood.
To start the year taking care of body and soul, you can cleanse the system after the celebrations with the Liver Cleanser and Purifier.
With a natural formula based on artichoke and boldo among others, it provides a refreshing and decongestant effect on the liver.
We wish you a happy and healthy holiday season!
