How to maintain your paleo habits during the festive season

Paleo nutrition emphasises the importance of following a regime of clean and unprocessed foods. Adopting a paleo diet helps with weight loss for many individuals.

This is partly because it encourages the consumption of whole, nutrient-dense foods and limits processed and refined foods. By removing processed carbohydrates and refined sugars, paleo diets can help to stabilize blood sugar levels, which can be beneficial for individuals with insulin resistance or diabetes. We all know that good eating habit can be hard to maintain at a period known for its overindulgence.

However, following a paleo diet during Christmas can be enjoyable and satisfying. Focus on choosing whole, unprocessed foods. Opt for fresh, organic meats, vegetables and fruit, and be sure to include a variety of colourful vegetables to make your meals vibrant and nutritious, as well as visually appealing. Consider using recipes that use natural ingredients and avoid processed or refined products.

Choose a lean meat as your centrepiece and get creative with the sides. Experiment with creative vegetable side dishes; roasted Brussels sprouts, sauteed kale, or butternut squash mash are excellent paleo-friendly options. Replace traditional mashed potatoes with cauliflower. It’s a tasty alternative that fits the paleo guidelines. By planning ahead and getting creative with your recipes, you can have a delicious and festive paleo Christmas celebration, making dishes that will be the envy of the table.
