5 No-Fuss Tips for a Healthier Christmas Day

While Christmas is about family and giving and being grateful, for a lot of us, Christmas Day itself is either filled with stress (putting on a huge dinner for loved ones, travelling all over the place to see everyone in a day, making sure the kids still believe in Santa Claus) or a day of absolute over-indulgence. I know I’m not alone in justifying Christmas as a day to fill my plate in gravy, induce a food coma or have a few extra beers and chocolates because “Christmas comes but once a year” – seriously, gravy is the bomb-diggety! – so I want to give you some tips to lessen the impact of this day of indulgence, allowing you to enjoy the day with your families and friends without feeling gross. My tips are realistic and simple, and wont alienate you as the weird person drinking a green smoothie while everyone else is digging into the roast (after all, it is Christmas, and if I could swim in gravy, I probably would).

Healthy Christmas Inspiration with my Gingerbread Smoothie

I am a bit of a fan of Christmas.

The Christmas carols, decorating the tree and opening a new door of my advent calendar every day until Christmas gets me all excited for the holidays and most of all, has me constantly craving gingerbread bikkies.

Of course, gingerbread cookies are full of sugar, so eating them every day? Not ideal. But there’s no reason for you to miss out on the beautiful spice of ginger and cinnamon, especially because they can benefit your blood sugar, heart health and digestion.

FIVE Ways to Get Your Five-a-Day

Part of being a nutritionist that I absolutely adore is that people love to tell me when they make a healthy change. I get tagged in photos of packed salad lunches, smoothies, almond milk, protein powder, shopping trolleys full of produce and grilled salmon, and have people saying things to me like,

“Miranda, you’ll be so proud, I’ve started eating fruit!”

– and you know what? I am so bloody proud, and chuffed and mostly flattered that you want to show me how healthy you eat. To be able to inspire you to make these small changes is part of my dream to make your lives happier and healthier, and the fact that I am the first person you think of when you bite into an apple, go for a walk or try quinoa for the first time is incredibly cool!

Pimp Your Breakfast with my Hollandaise for One

When I asked if you guys wanted this recipe, I was overwhelmed by the response and so very excited too! If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I am a little obsessed with making my own hollandaise sauce of late, so as with other food obsessions, I end up making said recipe almost every day/meal. Seriously though, who doesn’t love hollandaise?

It was so good, I couldn't help but lick the plate!!
