Alice Mackintosh – The Food Doctor Nutritionist
Mackintosh believes you need not deprive yourself from the majority of sumptuous foods others eat at Christmas and New Year to avoid loading in extra fat and calories. Some of the traditional Christmas foods are actually not harmful from a health perspective.
Turkey is a common dish in thanksgiving and Christmas dinner. This is a source of lean protein. Turkey also contains tryptophan a vital amino acid consuming, which stimulates the flow of serotonin- the happiness inducing hormone. Consuming sprouts is a good idea and homemade cranberry sauce is a nice option to add flavor to the Christmas foods.
