From Thanksgiving dinner to New Year's Eve parties, it's hard to resist the rich dishes and delicious drinks and treats that accompany family gatherings and office celebrations. Needless to say, we ended up eating more than we should. But when the holidays are over and we jump on the scales, we run away in horror because we have gained weight. To avoid this "tragic" moment, we bring you the advice of Silvia Delgado, Kaiser Permanente nutritionist and health educator, who offers us a guide to maintaining sanity (and the same size!) Without giving up culinary pleasures. Put it into practice from Thanksgiving dinner so you can enjoy these holidays without regretting anything.
Five tips for healthy eating on holidays:
1. Use substitute foods
In the kitchen, as in life, much of the success lies in the right selection. Instead of giving up carbohydrates, substitute them for healthy options.
Swap white rice for brown rice or quinoa.
- Use low-fat dairy products in recipes. Even the flan ones! Greek yogurt is an excellent substitute for creams.
- Reduce animal fat, prepare traditional dishes with extra virgin olive oil or canola oil.
2. He resorts to Latin power
There are several super foods that are already present in the Hispanic diet. Ingredients such as beans, avocado, cactus, chili peppers, and coriander are delicious and nutritious. But don't go overboard, super foods also have fat and calories.
