New Year 2024

Healthy Food Choices for Celebration

The New Year's Festival is a time for festivities, relaxation, and delightful gatherings. Often accompanied by a banquet filled with tempting high-calorie delights like fried potatoes, sausages, meatballs, and more. But this year, let's make conscious choices for a healthier celebration with tips from BDMS Wellness Clinic. Here's how to step into 2024 with our nourished diet options:

1. Healthy Appetizer

Transform your usual party snacks by incorporating more veggies. Try options like salad rolls, fresh spring rolls, grilled vegetables, or get creative with canapés using veggies instead of bread for a refreshing start.

2. Healthy Main Dish

Steer away from processed and fast foods. Opt for grilled, boiled, and steamed dishes to reduce fat intake. Consider choices like grilled fish, chicken, pork larb, various salads, and don't forget to include fresh vegetables on the side for a wholesome meal.

3. Healthy Dessert

Swap out the usual large cakes and desserts with a colorful array of fruits arranged in bite-sized pieces or skewers. Fruits not only provide less energy than traditional sweets but are also rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

4. Healthy Beverage

While celebrations often include alcohol, diversify your drink options with alternatives like soda, herbal water without added sugar, real fruit juice, kombucha, and infused water. And keep water readily available among your beverage choices.

The New Year is a season of joy, so let's celebrate without compromising our health. Embrace the festivities with choices that nourish the body, inviting positive energy for the coming year. Here's to a healthier and happier 2024
