The holidays are in full swing and with them comes time with family, gifts and of course tons of calories. And I hate to say it, but like most people, I wait until the New Year to start focusing on new fitness and health goals. Usually at that point you have all the indulgence out of your system and are ready to start fresh.
I love the holidays and all the wonderful food and memories they bring, but it definitely takes a toll on your body. There are some things you can do to keep the calories lower and hopefully not have too much catching up to do come January 1.
Most of the time it’s as simple as only having grilled or baked goods and leaving the fried foods behind. Or you could try having more fruit and veggie trays than cookies. And lastly focus on making desserts that don’t have to contain a ton of flour and sugar.
KBA’s FREE supplement recipe e-book has a few great dessert ideas that will keep the calories lower than traditional options and will make it easy to add nutritional value with just a teaspoon of our supplements.
And as far as your guests are concerned, they don’t need to know you’ve brought a healthy dish! Let them think they are still indulging like we all enjoy doing this time of year.
Then after the holidays are over you can still use our FREE e-book to create nutritious snacks, smoothies, drinks, soups and more. Our KBA supplements can be added to most meals and beverages year round!
