The season of gluttony is here…but mindful gluttony is key to a happy new year

Lifestyle, Nutrition & Well-being

Wow it has been a crazy time the last number of months, from getting married in October and relocating to London, UK! I feel like I blinked and it’s already the middle of December with the season of Christmas upon us. It’s been a bit of a culture shock in the UK, the festivities here are grander, there are more people and copious amounts of mulled wine, cider and the like all around.

It’s easy to get “wrapped up” around all of these activities and especially slip into an eating frenzy. I certainly don’t advocate for such strict diets and never enjoying oneself – but how about making healthy, freezable meals and reduced sugar, fat content sweets?

Here’s an array of easy meals you could cook, and bake to warm you up this holiday season. Great thing about all of these dishes are the portability – put it in a container and heat up later, or take the baked good as a mid-morning snack!
