Noche Buena: Why it’s Absolutely Possible to Still Eat Healthy

Guess who goes with us to work?

Can you imagine how tired I am chasing after him and reminding him not to touch things here? That's why I end up putting him on his stroller so I can do what I am supposed to do. We are just waiting now for Daddy who's still in the meeting. We'll go to the mall after to buy him his Cars shoes.

By the way, are you ready for the Noche Buena? Us? We already bought almost all we need for our Noche Buena and Media Noche too. Well, except for fruits and meats, I can say we are ready for the preparation.

And speaking of Noche Buena, here's why it's absolutely possible to eat healthy.

Holidays in the Philippines are just the best. The festive atmosphere is just like no other, and even CNN describes the Christmas season in the Philippines as, “Where would you find the most Christmas spirit in the world? It's hard to say for certain, but if a global competition were to be held, the Philippines would have an excellent shot at winning.[1]

Filled with festive lights and one celebration after another, it is safe to say that Filipinos also eat a lot during this period. While one of the best parts of the season is enjoying the food prepared for our Noche Buena feasts, it is still possible to make healthy choices during the season.

Contrary to popular belief, eating healthy won’t take the fun out of the season. In fact, it will make the season more enjoyable because you wouldn’t have to deal with the guilt at the beginning of the New Year. There are two ways to achieve this goal: the extreme way and the simplistic way.

The extreme way is using alternatives for the food we enjoy during our holiday feasts. It could be as simple as going for sugar-free desserts or going meat free in your main dishes. Making kare-kare using tofu skin is a popular option for health buffs, along with veggie pastas, and meaty mushrooms like portobello in lieu of beef. Using water instead of oil for stir frying is also a popular option.[2]

The simplistic way is by taking everything in moderation. This means you can still enjoy whatever is prepared on the table but not overeat. Sometimes, simply tasting the meal is enough to enjoy it. Another popular choice is choosing what you really want to eat. Some people skip main courses so they can eat a lot of dessert while others save their calories from flavored drinks to leave more room for delectable Christmas delights.

A favorite holiday drink of moms, Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water is the perfect companion to a healthy Noche Buena, helping you flush away all the excesses of the season. Keeping your family clean and safe, Absolute Pure Distilled Drinking Water provides nothing but the purest form of water due to its state-of-the-art distillation process. By drinking water instead of flavored drinks, you have more room to enjoy the glorious Noche Buena treats.

Make your holidays absolutely happy and healthy.
