Eating your own bodyweight in turkey and chocolate is part of the joy of Christmas. However now all the over indulgence is out of the way we thought we would compile a list of healthy, but tasty meals to see you through January.
The humble roast
It’s probably no surprise that the roast dinner has been cited as the nation’s favourite meal. It might be a bit of a faff to make with all the trimmings, but at its core, and with some sensible choices, it can be a very healthy meal.
The British Heart Foundation have some great tips on how to make a roast dinner healthier.
Another firm favourite with the nation is a “ruby murry”. Many people immediately think of curry as unhealthy and fat filled…..but, with a little imagination you can whip up a delicious and super healthy curry yourself.
This easy chicken curry doesn’t look overly complicated, and for those that don’t like there curry too hot, it’s nice and mild. If you’re a bit more of a fire breather, why don’t you give this Bengali mustard fish a go. Fish is a great healthy option too!
