Healthy Fuel for the Festive Season

Healthy Fuel for the Festive Season

The holiday season is notorious for being the busiest time of the year with endless to-do lists and never quite enough time. This year will likely look a bit different, but whether you’re Christmas shopping online or decking the halls of your home, we’ve got some tips to help you get the most energy from your food. 

Alfie Meade, a nutritionist at HIIT Kitchen, Phizz’s newest stockist, shared some healthy meals to help you power through your festive agenda. And there’s no prep necessary! HIIT Kitchen’s meal delivery service will drop these energy boosters straight to your door. Here’s what he recommends:

  1. The primary role of dietary carbohydrates is to provide energy for the body. Our gluten-free sweet potato pancakes with blueberries, raspberries, yoghurt & coconut are an easy winner when it comes to a high source of carbohydrates to keep you fuelled for your home workouts or tree trimming! 
  2. Protein is responsible for many functions throughout the body including energy production, cell signalling and nutrient transport. For these reasons and many more, protein is an essential dietary nutrient for healthy living. When it comes to a tasty, wholesome high-protein meal our chicken korma with cauliflower rice and tandoori broccoli certainly tops it. 
  3. Dietary fat is essential for survival and has many important functions in human bodies as a major source of energy, metabolising fat-soluble vitamins, and providing heat insulation for the body. Choose healthy fats like the salmon in our pink grapefruit, white miso-glazed salmon with spicy udon noodles & crunchy Thai slaw.
