How to avoid overeating on Christmas

We know that the holidays are coming with many parties and celebrations full with food and all kind of drinks.
If you don’t want to overeat this holidays, don’t worry! We found this tips for you:
  • Have a healthy and filling breakfast that morning to ensure you do not arrive ravenously hungry
  • It’s not the amount of food you eat but the energy density of your choices that counts. The key is not to restrict yourself to the blandest options but to combine your reasonable portions of your favorite energy-dense foods with tasty foods lower in energy (e.g., salad).
  • Don’t eat yesterday’s food of fear of wasting it. Instead, turn unloved portions into fresh meals. Create healthy soups with leftover meats and freeze them for another day.

1 lb. fresh tuna, diced in 1/8-inch cube (chilled until ready to serve)

3 Tbsp 100% pure sesame oil

 3 Tbsp corn oil

Tbsp mniced ginger

1 Tbsp premium soy sauce

1 Tbsp lemon juice

1 tsp mirin

1 tsp sugar

1 tsp wasabi powder

1 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds

  2. You have several serving options. For a cocktail party, you can either place a small scoop of tuna tartare on a spoon topped with diced avocado and mango. Or for our “fish & chips” (an unusual yet complimentary pairing), place a scoop of tuna tartare on a potato chip and top with diced avocado and mango. To serve as a side dish, place a 3-inch ring form on a plate. Add a layer of diced mango, then tuna tartare and avocado. Top with one large potato chip and sprinkle with cilantro.

Paleo Frozen Chocolate Smoothie

Source: http://paleoleap.com/frozen-chocolate-smoothie/

Frozen chocolate smoothie

Chocolate can be a perfectly healthy food; it’s all the other stuff we typically eat along with the chocolate that makes it so questionable. Fortunately, it’s perfectly possible to tone down the bitterness of raw cacao and make it delicious without adding a huge pile of junk. In this smoothie, you can re-create an almost Nutella-like taste with just three ingredients: cocoa powder, dates, and hazelnuts.

Ingredients

  • ¾ cup water;
  • ¼ cup whole hazelnuts, without the skin, soaked in water overnight and drained;
  • 1 tbsp. raw cacao powder;
  • 3 dates, pitted;
  • 10 ice cubes;
Smoothie preparation

Preparation

  1. Combine the water, the hazelnuts, the dates, and the cocoa powder in blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add in the ice and blend again until you get the desired texture.
  3. Serve ice cold.
