Delicious food is part of Christmas, of course.
But does it always have to be so much sweet stuff that makes us unnecessarily lazy on the most beautiful days of the year? Someone who should know gives advice: senior physician and nutritionist Dr. Nagham Soda has been dealing with the topic of food for many years and recommends changing recipes – and getting creative when serving.
In concrete terms, janet tamillow can mean, for example:
Less sugar and fat in the dough, and more good nuts instead. They are rich in healthy unsaturated fatty acids. You can also be picky about the flour and choose at least a proportion of healthy whole grains. Or all shares? Of course you can.
As important as the ingredients, Dr. Soda the shared experience of baking and cooking. In this way, you not only keep control of all the ingredients, but also turn everything around into a connecting experience that everyone will surely remember fondly.
If you are planning entire menus,
janet tamillow should definitely include something green in the dishes, advises the expert with a wink: “Half should consist of vegetables or salad, it can be colorful!” The other 50 percent should contain sufficient filling protein (to maintain muscle) and include attachments.
Ms. can recommend Dr. Soda includes legumes such as beans, peas or lentils, eggs, poultry and dairy products. Anyone who eats fish regularly also benefits from the healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
These are just one example of how fat doesn’t necessarily mean unhealthy .
dr Soda generally recommends vegetable oils or margarine instead of animal butter. Cold-pressed olive oil, rapeseed oil, linseed oil and walnut oil are particularly popular, with which not only Mediterranean dishes but also all kinds of salad dressings become a taste experience.
It is important to use the “good fats” and to eat as little as possible of the “bad fats”, i.e. the saturated fats (in animal products such as butter, meat, sausage or cheese). And above all: Stay away from trans fats, which are found in large quantities in fried foods such as chips and chips, and sweet baked goods,” says Dr. Soda. A look at the ingredient list (hydrogenated/partially hydrogenated) will help you spot the hidden trans fats .
Incidentally, if you use a pan with a good coating for frying, you need less fat.
If it’s already nice and hot when the meat is placed, it absorbs less fat, which the doctor advises. This is how the kitchen professionals do it too. Low-fat dishes are successful with cooking methods such as the roasting tube, the Roman pot or the steam cooker.
And then there is the frequency of our food intake. The nutrition expert doesn’t think skipping meals is a good idea, she says in an interview with the RHÖN health blog: “If you’re hungry, you should eat something healthy. That’s better than constantly snacking on something sweet, salty or fatty!” Vegetables with a fresh herbal quark or fruit with quark are good options for when you’re hungry. This is sufficiently filling and at the same time rich in vitamins.
And if the products are seasonal and come from the region
That’s of course even better,” says Dr. Soda: “And, please, don’t forget to drink!” How much is that supposed to be? According to science, an adult should consume at least one and a half liters a day.
If you want to go one better, you can not only ensure healthy and delicious food at Christmas, but also an excursion in the fresh air. dr Soda and her team wish all readers a Merry Christmas. And have a happy new year.
