From the beginning of the year you have been eating right, working out and keeping fit. How can you possibly resist the sizzling of roast meat and the endless drinks especially if they seem to be everywhere you go?
There is nothing wrong in indulging a bit to celebrate the goodness of life especially in this festive season; however it is important to remember that our health is our greatest wealth. Taking care of your body is one of your greatest responsibilities. Moderation is key even as we festivate. You will not only stay healthy but your pockets too will thank you come January.
Accompany your meals with plenty of vegetables and fruits. They are rich in fiber, minerals and vitamins. They are essential in lowering the risk for certain diseases such as heart diseases; they help improve your eye sight in addition to boosting your blood levels.
