AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Shane Young | December 18, 2018 |
We’re counting down the days! Christmas is almost here and we want to prepare you for the coming holidays with the right food. As we jump from one holiday to the next there’s always a reason to screw up your diet and find an excuse not to exercise. Our goal is and always has been to lead you towards healthy long term changes in your eating habits. That means providing you with healthy alternatives!
Today we are going to present you with a very special Christmas guilt free menu. The best way for you to approach this is by not overeating and not overloading on added sugars which peak your blood sugar. This is a healthy variation of food and of course tasty.
Let’s see what we can put together.
1.Appetizer: Italian Style Zucchini Rolls
The cool thing about these low carb rolls is that you get a good amount of fat in at the same time. And not just any fat, but one of our favorite ones: Bacon! #yummy. What’s important to understand here is that with a solid fatty appetizer you will likely not overeat at your main dish afterwards because it fills you up without spiking your blood sugar.
Ingredients (for 4 servings (28 mini rolls)):
2. Main Dish: Nectarine Thyme Roasted Duck
This one is special, because it takes a little more time to prepare, but it’s totally worth it. And to be honest: Christmas is just one time a year, you’ll need to make sure that this one is special ;). That’s why we chose the duck as a traditional Christmas main dish because it brings the family close together at the table. Even if the instructions take a bit more time, the recipe itself is an easy one. We won’t go super fancy here and keep it Paleo to still make sure that your blood sugar is under control and the animal protein saves your gains.
Here we go:
3. Dessert: Ascend Classic: Paleo Protein Chocolate Brownies
Last but not least we’ll get back to a favorite recipe from last year and get you a good amount of anti oxidants with the cocoa powder (protein chocolate brownies). And seriously: What would be any Christmas without some type of sweetness and chocolate? So why invent the wheel new when we had the perfect ones ready?
Here’s the link to the recipe on our homepage: http://ascendbody.com/protein-brownies/
With that we wish you a holly jolly Christmas.
Stay healthy, think longterm in your diet and try to keep the stress low! 🙂
