During Christmas the illusion is awakened, but also the desire to celebrate and eat great. It is also a time of reencounters and long meals and family dinners, in which a variety of sweet and salty dishes are prepared, and where chocolate is particularly outstanding. And it is that the consumption of this food is actually increased by up to 75% during the holidays, as AENOR noted in a study. However, celebrating and enjoying Christmas is possible without having to deprive yourself of certain foods.
Santiago Peralta, founder of Pacari – unique organic chocolate thanks to the process of biodynamic production* cocoa- and considered one of the best chocolates in the world proposes different keys to enjoy this food at this Christmas in all its fullness, but without neglecting health:
Control the intake of food and avoid reaching fast food or dinner. It is better to eat moderate amounts in the different meals, eat at appropriate hours, avoid copious meals and not fast the rest of the day. This will only generate a lot of hunger at dinner and ingest calories that the body will accumulate more easily if all are consumed together.
Eye with the sweet. Attention must be paid to products consumed. A very important part of Christmas food are desserts and sweet dishes. A healthy choice is chocolate with more than 70% cocoa that besides controlling sweet cravings, is a great source of happiness thanks to which it stimulates serotonin. Recetas para Cookeo de Moulinex
From Pacari they want to remember that it is possible to enjoy the pleasure of eating chocolate and without losing the phytonutrients and antioxidants of cocoa. For this, it is very important pay special attention to the percentage of cocoa, as the higher the less sugar will contribute and consequently it will be healthier.
Although this is not the only thing to take into account when purchasing the Christmas table, it is also essential to analyze the origin and purity of cocoa and if it has been subjected to some kind of chemical process. Since this could cause the loss of the natural benefits offered by its consumption.
Include chocolate, and especially biodynamic, made with pure cocoa, without chemical processing, will help the time of sweet dishes be pure enjoyment and health. It will not only bring happiness, but also a lot of nutrients such as soluble fiber, minerals such as iron, copper, magnesium and manganese. Yes, success is in the balance, so you have to control the amount you take.
Finally, it is also a good advice, adding healthy fat foods such as nuts and avocado, as well as taking infusions between hours to improve digestion. It is also useful to control the drinks with which these delicacies are accompanied and try to compensate for the excesses for the rest of days with a lower calorie and vegetable-based diet, boiled and/or baked food.
