Day two! I’m so excited this year, I really started off wishing Christmas would just vanish into the abyss but I know how to control my eating habits and keep myself motivated and I think the challenge of it all is keeping me going..
And I wanted to give you my 25 hacks of Christmas, I’m going to give you my top 25 tips to having a healthy and easy Christmas so there’s no need to worry before detox season, no diets or quick fixes for you, you’ll be fitter than before the festive season!
In case you missed it, Hack 1 and obviously Hack #2 is having the healthy dinner options!
For me, and pretty much everyone I know. Christmas dinner is the thing for the festive season. As you should know, I love eating but my body just can’t digest the salty, fatty foods so I really suffer with painful bloating and nausea *no good*. This year I’ve decided that for me, I’m going to fight Fatmas and turn it into Fitmas and eat what I know my body can handle, so I’ve set up some healthy recipes that I can use and share;
Some will be Vegetarian, Pescetarian and Gluten Free so you have the choice!
Sweet Potato Gratin (Paleo, Vegan.)
Sweeter Sweet Potato apple chutney (Paleo, Vegan)
Appetisers and sides
Mexican corn salad
Roasted gnocchi, sun-dried tomato & olive stacks
Cauliflower Fritters (Vegan, Paleo)
Mulled red cabbage and clementines (Vegan, Paleo)
Smokey Cheddar Cheese (vegetarian)

If these suggestions still aren’t ‘cutting the mustard’ why don’t you teach yourself to incorporate veggies into your every day meals. Spruce up your Christmas with a new take on the classic mashed potatoes? Or browse some festive Pinterest boards for some inspiration, I have several boards dedicated to diets and this time of year is no reason to give up your motivation.
Find the right foods for you and enjoy yourself! Merry Christmas!
