Christmas Markets | The Healthy Way

Heaving with food, drinks and festive cheer, the Christmas Markets are an absolute must this December. Trying to stay healthy during this period can seem impossible, but there are a few simple swaps you can make to help prevent the festive bulge. We’ve sourced a few food and drink ideas, to keep you on track with your diet, without missing out on all the fun!

For starters: Roasted Chestnuts

Not only do they smell amazing, they’re also low in calories and high in fibre, vitamin C, monounsaturated fat, iron, zinc, calcium, magnesium and potassium. So grab yourself  some warming roasted chestnuts for a healthy, nutritious, Christmas market snack!

For main:  Goulash Soup

A traditional Hungarian delicacy, Goulash Soup is a spicy beef and vegetable stew, weighing in at around 270 calories, it makes the perfect hearty, winter warmer.

 

For Dessert: Fruit Skewers

These fantastically fruity skewers are basically just slices of fresh fruit covered in chocolate, because the chocolate doesn’t count if there’s something healthy underneath – right?

To Drink: Champagne
