16th December 2021
Christmas is my favourite time of the year as it’s full of food, family, friends and fun; however, we all know it can often be a time of overindulgence as well, especially when it comes to eating too much salt.
A lot of the festive foods we find on our Christmas tables often have ‘hidden salt’ in them, including bread, biscuits, and condiments (such as gravy), which can sometimes lead to us overconsuming in salt and exceeding the maximum daily limit of 6g (which is about a teaspoon).
The good news? Having a healthier Christmas doesn’t have to be difficult and some simple swaps, tricks and tips, can help this December…
As someone who lives with a chronic heart condition, healthy eating and learning to season with sense isn’t something I can ignore, even at Christmas time – but simple measures such as flavouring my turkey with herbs and spices, opting for ‘low salt’ alternatives, or using a reduced-sodium salt when cooking, can make a difference.
We all deserve to enjoy delicious food this Christmas, but by making small and easy changes now, it means we have a good base to grow from, to help us make healthier habits as we welcome in 2022.
