Leave that to the turkey!
To get you started, here are some healthy changes/swaps for the big day to help you cut back on the calories while still enjoying loads of flavour …
Swap: turkey with the skin on basted in butter
For: skinless turkey lightly basted in its own juices or stock
Swap: sausage meat stuffing (not allowed in Barry’s house)
For: roast chestnut, cranberry & orange stuffing.
Swap: bread sauce made with cream
For: make the sauce with skimmed milk … if you have to make it at all
Swap: double thick clotted cream – what!
For: plain yogurt, creme fraiche or – if you must – low fat custard
You can save around 505 calories just by making these little swaps!
While we’re here, here’s a reminder about
The Special One
on Christmas Day!
We’ll be meeting at 9am at Kirtlington Village Hall in Oxfordshire. Fun, fitness AND a glass of champagne (and we’re not talking the cheap stuff!)
– and it’s all FREE! It’s our Christmas present to you.
So that just leaves us to say … Eat, drink, and be merry during this festive season, but … In 2014 double your training!
Merry Christmas and a happy, fit 2014 from Barry and the team at Prime Energy Fitness Ltd
