Now that Christmas is over and our bellies have had time to relax and deflate…it’s time to look on to the impending future and NEW YEARS!
This entire period of festivities is a time of laughing, fun, time with family and lots of EATING!
Now…this time of the year doesn’t have to be the time for you to over eat or gain weight or be unhealthy! Although, I must admit I do sometimes just want to pig out BUT I have to remind myself that I have don’t have to hoover everything in sight! I can still be eat and live healthily this festive season.
Instead…have FUN with FOOD
Yes, let’s get to the GOOD stuff! There will no doubt be many parties, endless braai’s (i.e BBQ’s) and copious amounts of alcohol! Going to a BBQ doesn’t have to be stressful in terms of what you can eat! Here are some healthy and fun things to eat and put on the coals/fire:
- Skinless Chicken Breast
My personal favourite though has to be the SKEWER! Chicken breast, vegetables (green, red, yellow peppers), red onion, mushrooms…actually WHATEVER you like! I included some dried peach just for fun! It’s really filling and just CHEWY GOODNESS!
Add a LOVELY green salad and you are good to go!
Now, I realise that not everyone eats meat…so, I suggest when going to the BBQ, take along your tofu burgers, and remove the chicken breast from the skewer! I made one without meat as you can see in this image to the left…
Don’t be SKEERRRRDDD!
DON’T be afraid to go to a BBQ – EVER! You can have just as much fun as the others and still be healthy!
If you guys out there have any other cool healthy foods and recipes for BBQ snacks…please comment and let me know!
