The One Food You Must Avoid This Holiday Season

[nextpage]

Seasons Greetings, typically means GAME ON when it comes to unhealthy foods, from glazed to smoked, to cured and sweetened – of course, all like nana used to make it. Our cholesterol goes through the roof – as do our waistlines.

So where is the list of ‘watch outs’ when it comes to the foods most likely to be adorning the tables of all and sundry reading this blog, avoid where possible, minimise exposure at worst and you will see into the new year without needing a ‘new years resolution’ again about watching what you eat, getting fit etc. [/nextpage]

1. Glazed Ham

If you are looking for a way to get salt into your system, Glazed Ham is it. Packed with sodium, sugar glaze you really are getting started on a meal that will capture the eyes, mouths, stomachs and most definitely the hearts – literally and metaphorically of your guests. Options are looking at a slow cooker or pressure cooker option without the glaze, but sorry to say that we know that taste good, but you are not doing too many favors for your health.

2. Gravy

Again, another fat and sodium overload. So it doesn’t really matter if you have chosen the turkey over the ham, due to the sodium and sugar content, if you are going to tip gravy all over it, it will be filled with sodium (clog your arteries) Fat (that waistline) and sugar (again the waste line), maybe settle for some mustard or nothing at all?
