CHRISTMAS MARKET Nutrition Tips
The best thing about the pre-Christmas season: the Christmas market! Nevertheless a curse for many calorie-conscious eaters.
CHRISTMAS MARKETS ARE TEEMING WITH HIDDEN CALORIES.
To make sure you don’t miss out on all the snacks and still enjoy the time, here are a few tips:PAY ATTENTION TO MICRONUTRIENTS
Outside of Christmas market visits, you should keep your meals high in protein and vegetables, as micronutrient intake is very low at Christmas markets.SAVE FAT WITH VEAL BRATWURST
You should avoid the classic bratwurst and resort to the leaner veal sausage. With 5 g less fat you can also save about 50 calories per sausage.ROAST APPLE WITHOUT SAUCE
The baked apple is one of the most harmless calorie carriers at Christmas markets and also a source of vitamins and minerals. The best way to order an apple is to avoid the vanilla sauce, so you save 50 calories and unnecessary sugar.ROASTED CHESTNUTS INSTEAD OF ROASTED ALMONDS
Eat roasted almonds in moderation. If you don’t want the Christmas market delicacy at all, use roasted chestnuts. They satiate quickly due to fibers and have 45 g less fat.
The best thing is to walk across the entire Christmas market and explore the food booths. Then you’ll know what’s available at which booth and you’ll be able to take a more relaxed approach to snacks.
