Getting ready for Xmas

I know that as we approach Christmas there is a lot to do particularly if you have family with you and you are preparing the meal and that’s after you have done all your present shopping.

This is the time of year when we regret having not lost the weight we promised we would do at the start of the year.

But that can often mean that we just don’t have the time or the inclination to eat healthily during the run up to Christmas.  This isn’t helped by sweets and chocolates being at your place of work and of course the Christmas parties.

One thing you can do to mitigate all of this is try to have some healthy soups to keep you going so when you do give in to temptation you won’t be overdoing it. There is a tasty recipe below for you try

I will be offering special offers in January to help with new year resolutions so if you want to know more just contact me.
