The Best Healthy Tips for Eating during the Holidays!

 

When the holidays arrive, many of us fforget about their diets and healthy eating habits. People often gain 7 to 10 pounds between Halloween and Christmas. Hopefully, the following suggestions will help you maintain a healthy diet and minimize weight gain throughout the holiday season.

  1. Most classic foods may be made low fat; for example, without the skin, turkey is relatively lean, and gravy can be made without any fat. Potatoes served without butter can be quite nutritious. Although the popular pumpkin pie is healthful, it may rapidly become a fattening dessert when topped with whipped cream.
  2. Even though the holidays are upon us, don't forget about exercise; it's a sure-fire method to stay in shape during the holidays by burning off those extra calories. After meals, go for a stroll, park farther away from stores when shopping, and take a few laps around the mall before you start shopping. Or try one of the simplest workouts for staying in shape: hold a "Plank" position for 30 seconds and work your way up to 2 minutes; you'll notice a change quickly.
  3. Feel free to sample new cuisines during holiday parties and family dinners, but don't overindulge; remember, it's a joyous time of year, so eat what you want, but in moderation. It's always a good idea to plan ahead of time what you'll eat and stick to it. Consume plenty of fruits and vegetables, as well as low-fat dressings and lean meat cuts. Use a smaller plate than your stomach can handle. Before heading to a party, have a small snack to keep your hunger at bay. We may be prejudiced, but we think our Tiger Nuts are the best snack for "filling up" and curbing your appetite.
  4. If at all possible, stay away from alcohol. Drinking too much can weaken your resolve and add extra calories to your diet. Water with lemon can be substituted for alcohol. Water can help you control your appetite and avoid overeating. Also, stay away from eggnog, which can contain up to 300 calories per glass. Or if you would like to splurge, you could make a traditional Spanish Tiger Nuts Horchata drink, from our raw Premium Organic Tiger Nuts, here’s a link on how to make it: https://tigernutsusa.com/blogs/recipes/how-to-make-horchata-using-traditional-premium-organic-tiger-nuts

When it comes to healthy eating, remember that one lousy meal won't wreck your entire diet, so enjoy the Holidays but keep an eye on your waistline.

Eating Heart Healthy Foods

We've all heard about high cholesterol or a poor diet, at some point in our lives.

The truth is that it is not always possible to eat healthily, even though we make every effort.

Eating a heart-healthy diet and creating a healthy eating plan is something that we should all try to do, especially as it can help your health, lower your stress levels, and reduce the chances of heart attacks.

 

Your stomach and your heart

These facts are UNDENIABLE !:

  • A diet high in saturated fats raises cholesterol and is a big risk factor for heart disease.
  • A high-sodium diet can raise blood pressure, causing inflammation and potential heart issues.
  • Obese people are more likely to develop heart disease.

 

Follow these suggestions to help prevent heart disease and improve your health.

Consume a lot of fish.
Salmon, herring, and sardines are all high in Omega 3 essential fatty acids, and some other fish are also beneficial too as the Omega 3 in them could also help in lowering cholesterol levels.

Choose fats and oils that are good for you
Saturated fat raises the risk of coronary artery disease.
It can be present in a variety of foods, including beef, butter, and even coconut oil. They should be avoided until your cholesterol levels have decreased and you have reached a healthy weight. Even those who eat a lot of red meat can get enough protein from seafood and nuts.

Olive oils, for example, are high in monounsaturated fats, which aid to protect your heart. Olive oil is excellent for cooking, seasoning, and even for dipping foods in. Of course, we might be biased, but you should really try our Tiger Nuts Oil. It outperforms Olive oil, it's Extra Virgin, Cold Pressed and we think it’s the best on the market for cooking and dining.                                                         

                                                   

 

Fiber in abundance                                                                

Fiber can aid in your cholesterol management program and can be found in whole grain products to aid digestion. Controlling sugar absorption is also a big deal to help you maintain a healthy digestive system. Just for the record, Tiger Nuts from www.tigernutsusa.com, are packed with fiber.

 

Carbohydrate selection
Sugary foods such as candies, cookies, cakes, and pastries are heart healthy foods to avoid if you are seriously thinking about your heart. Because sugar consumption has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. Whole grain breads, whole grain pasta, brown rice, and a variety of veggies, especially our raw Premium Organic and Supreme Peeled Tiger Nuts are all good sources of healthy carbs. They and of course, fruits and vegetables are good for the heart and should be the foundation of your diet.

Cooking techniques that are good for you
Because you shouldn't dip your food in batter and fry it anymore, stir frying and sauteing with Tiger Nuts Oil, olive oil or canola oil are all excellent options. For instance, if you are cooking chicken, remove the skin and roast it in foil in the oven.

Try baking your fish instead of frying it, and steaming your vegetables helps to keep the nutrients intact. Stop using cream sauces or a lot of butter, try putting lemon juice on your vegetables or flavoring them with your preferred seasonings like pepper, garlic etc.

As you make the necessary modifications to your diet, please keep in mind that they will take time to become habits. Also, we don’t need a scientist to tell us that eating healthily is always going to be beneficial to our body and lifestyle, particularly when it comes to heart and heart disease prevention.

We just need reminding occasionally!

Healthy Eating for Students

 

With late-night pizza delivery and food from buggies, dining at college is a whole new ballgame for students. Even though some of these quick and easy meals taste delicious, they are probably not so good for a student's health.

Students' eating choices can have an impact on their ability to stay awake in class and whether or not they contract mononucleosis when it arrives on campus. The issue isn't only about eating junk food; it's also about individuals not receiving enough protein, carbs, vitamins, and minerals.

Vitamins and minerals are extremely vital in the fight against sickness. It's not necessary for students to go out and buy vitamins and supplements, just eating healthy food is the easiest and best source of nutrients for them.

Citrus fruits provide vitamin C, milk and dairy products include vitamin A, while Tiger Nuts have fiber, whole wheat goods, and even green leafy vegetables have vitamin E. This is the best approach to receive nutrients because your body need these vitamins for a variety of functions.

Skip the sodas and go straight to the juice machines when you're eating on campus. Examine the many meals on offer and visit the salad bar for some fresh vegetables. You may also use the microwave to steam broccoli and cauliflower for steamed vegetables. Healthy cereals and plenty of fresh fruit are always available in the dining halls.

Always keep in mind that eating healthily entails more than just avoiding fried meals. Eating healthily is maintaining a balanced diet and obtaining the necessary nutrients and vitamins to keep your body performing at its best - or at the very least awake throughout your classes.

Hope this helps and good luck with your studies!
