Eating well during the Holidays (and flu season) is often on many people’s minds. Consider adding healthy food to your even festive menu, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, fiber and superfoods, which are very beneficial to improve your immune system, energy levels and both dental and intestinal health. Slip them into soups, salads and smoothies, or make them the stars of brunch and snacks after an activity.
- Turkey: The star of Christmas and the leanest of meats, turkey is rich in niacin, B-complex vitamins and zinc. Don’t hesitate to combine tradition and nutrition!
- Mixed greens and vegetables: They can be consumed raw or cooked, in a salad or soup, and are full of calcium, iron, etc. Any meal, even during the Holidays, should be accompanied by greens and veggies!
- Berries: You can’t have Christmas without cranberries! They are as good as blueberries, strawberries, raspberries and kiwi! This small fruit is excellent for your health.
- Yogurt: Whether regular, Greek or probiotic, yogurt belongs to the family of super-fermented foods that aid digestion. Ideal for salad dressings, dips, and desserts!
Good news for partygoers! Did you know that dark chocolate, red wine and coffee are all considered as superfoods? However, they all stain your teeth. Don’t forget to brush after your meal!
