Every year we end the year in the same way, stuffed with all kinds of food and still hungover from New Year's Eve or the last Christmas meal with friends. We are sure that during the festive season we have all overdone it a little bit, repeating that succulent dessert from Christmas Eve, that fatty but tasty meat from Christmas Day, those snacks of mantecados, polvorones and sweets of all kinds, or those nights of drinks with friends.
So it's time to get back to healthy habits after the excesses of Christmas and that's why from Doña Francisquita Catering we propose some ideas for you to feel lighter and say goodbye to all the Christmas binges. TAKE NOTE! and start with your detox plan.
BREAKFAST, THE MOST IMPORTANT MEAL OF THE DAY
Firstly, never skip breakfast! As you all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as it is the most important meal of the day. gives us all the energy we need to face the day.Did you buy your first roscón de reyes around 25 December? It's time to change your mind, so the first thing to do is to get rid of all the leftover Christmas sweets so that you don't fall into temptation. Take the opportunity to give them to your neighbour, your cousin in the village or to those sporty people we all have around us.
To do this, include in your detox plan a natural orange juice which is a great way to start the day because of its high content in vitamin C and fibrealthough eating a couple of oranges will satiate you a lot more. Also infusions as the green tea will help you to reduce your appetite. Coffee should be drunk sugar-freeand replace it with the sweetener that works best for you, and of course skimmed milkYou can also switch for a few weeks to taking some wholegrain cereals with plain, low-fat, sugar-free yoghurt.
Replace butter with olive oil, some bread with tomato slices or crushed tomato. Increase your intake of high-fibre foods to regulate bowel function and acidity, your stomach will thank you for it.
The best way to satisfy your appetite in the mid-morning is to drink one or two pieces of whole fruitThe most important fruits, rich in fibre such as oranges, avocado, apples, papaya, pineapple or banana. Forget wholemeal toast, muffins, sweets and anything that is not fruit. Don't forget to drink plenty of fluids to help keep you as full as possible between meals.. Don't forget to drink between 2 and 3 litres of water per day.
AT NOON... JOY!
You're going to need it to cope with a few weeks of low saturated fat dieting, so avoid fried foods and sauces at all costs.. For staunch carnivores, it is best to include the consumption of white meats such as beef and pork. chicken or the turkeyincreases the consumption of white fish such as hake, monkfish, megrim, cod, turbot, sole or sea bass. Don't forget the pulses such as lentils or chickpeas. If you were already eating healthily before the holidays, it won't be hard to get back into this routine.
IT'S TIME TO EAT VEGETABLES

You can always calm your appetite mid-afternoon with some fruit, a low-fat yoghurt with wholegrain cereals, a herbal tea or a coffee without sugar and with skimmed milk for an afternoon snack will do the trick.
In order to lose weight, it is essential that your detox plan includes a light dinner, as it is the last meal of the day, which makes it more difficult to burn it off. .... DON'T EVEN THINK OF GOING TO BED WITHOUT DINNER. We recommend a salad, some steamed vegetablesa vegetable wok or a French omelette. You can also have some sopita or some of fish grilled or boiled.
If you're not a regular gym-goer... a brisk walking, ride for a while in bicycleclimb up the stairs and avoid the lift. It all adds up in your detox plan!
