AND NEVER MISS A NEW POST
By Marvin | December 22, 2017 |
Christmas is coming up and the New Year is right around the corner. Most of us are in full-on relaxation mode right now. For many people, relaxing and enjoying life means eating sweets and “empty calories” (calories from sugar or fats that contain few or no nutrients like vitamins and minerals).
First, if you stick to clean eating 80-90% of the time, you can and should indulge in “bad” foods during the holidays. Letting yourself cheat can help you stick to your diet in the longterm, and can reduce the stress levels in your body. Remember: More stress, more cortisol, fewer minerals, less energy and dampened fat burning.
Second, you don’t have to restrict anything. There’s always a healthy alternative for you out there. To make it even easier for you, we came up with this recipe for healthy, fudgy, protein brownies. They’re full of natural ingredients, contain protein, and are delicious too. As a result you’ll avoid digestion problems and can enjoy some sweets without guilt. Isn’t that cool?
Bottom line: stay balanced with your diet, enjoy delicious food occasionally, and choose healthy alternatives when possible.
We love you guys, enjoy your Christmas time!
