It’s that time where we usher in the New Year with well wishes of prosperity, back-to-back lo hei sessions and the quintessential Chinese New Year goodies. What’s Chinese New Year without those buttery pineapple tarts, fragrant bak kwa or crisp love letters?
We all know that CNY goodies are loaded with calories (how else does it taste so good?!) but that hasn’t stopped anyone from reaching for seconds, or thirds for that matter. We asked our nutritionists at HIC to share some sensible nutritional advice that won’t put a damper on the festivities so you can have your cake and eat it (mindfully) too!
1. Keep to regular meal times
Don’t go hangry on Lunar New Year. While pineapple tarts and bak kwa are sure to sooth the hangry soul, it’s a caloric catastrophe you’ll want to avoid. Have your meals at regular times so you’re less likely to make poor food choices due to a ravenous appetite.
Whether you’re celebrating Chinese New Year with family or friends this year, one thing’s for sure, no Lunar New Year is complete without a reunion dinner. All the better if it’s home-cooked with lots of love. Keep these easy tips in mind for a healthier spread for your family:
1. Steam your fish
Steaming fish retains its natural flavour and works best with fresh, white fish. Try Cantonese or Teochew style steamed fish recipes, they are quick and easy to prepare, taste delicious and are low in calories!
A common misconception people have about detox programmes or cleanses is that they think of it as a form of a crash diet for quick weight loss. When in reality, cleanses for are meant to give one’s body a respite from all the processed food we consume and to allow one’s digestive system to reset itself while providing vitamin and nutrients in the form of liquid.
We speak to our in-house nutritionists to help debunk some of the common weight loss myths out there.
1. Greens are always good.
Are they? Sweetened green juices can be high in calories and cause weight gain, while canned greens have a high sodium content. It’s best to eat your greens fresh. The next best alternative would be to drink it fresh! But remember, no one food can provide all the nutrients one requires. You should always include a variety of food such as fruit, dairy, grains into your diet to achieve good health.
