It’s Christmas month and there’s lots of temptation for indulgence. It’s not easy passing by aisles of mince pies, mini stollens or Yule log .. And cream 😳I know, right?!
And damn those festive flavoured Pringles! 🤣 I decided to stock my fridge with lots of vegetables and meat and fruits and eggs.
So I’d make sure that there’s always something more nutritious to devour when I’m hungry and dried fruits and nuts for when I’m craving a snack. I don’t know about most people but I’m keeping it real. Christmas week I’m going to enjoy myself. But till then.. festive flavoured porridge and protein shakes will Do!
