Nutritionist and Dietician Pınar Demirkaya prepared delicious and healthy recipes for those who want to spend the New Year with family or friends. Demirkaya offered healthy eating suggestions for both New Year's Eve and the next day.
In general, many dishes take place at the same time at the New Year's table. However, due to the meals that can be consumed all night long, many problems such as indigestion and headache can be encountered both that evening and the next day. Nutritionist and Dietician Pınar Demirkaya states that in order not to experience this, attention should be paid to what is eaten and drunk, and lists excessively fatty meals, sugary, acidic and carbonated drinks to be avoided. Demirkaya also states that the cooking methods of the meals are important and gives suggestions for healthy eating. Demirkaya also prepared three delicious recipes for New Year's Eve, including hot starters, main course and dessert, and made nutritional recommendations for New Year's Eve and the first day of the new year.
Baking instead of frying
You don't need to count calories to lose weight. Dieters can also consume appropriate amounts of food on New Year's Eve. Because dieting does not mean giving up the tables prepared when you get together with friends and family. Turkey can be consumed with foods with a low glycemic index and rich in fiber content such as zucchini, broccoli, radish, eggplant and cauliflower. Preferring the baking method instead of frying stands out as an important factor here.
The next day, hazelnuts, almonds, eggs…
You need to eat little by little, not all at once. Salads with olive oil and lemon, prepared from cucumbers, carrots, kidney beans, kale, celery, turnips and yogurt, as well as fruits and vegetables such as pears, kiwis, apples, dried apricots, can be served on the table. It is essential to drink plenty of water throughout the night. Or you can drink mineral water. The next day can be started with plenty of water, oats, olives, eggs and ginger. Those who wish can consume oily seeds such as walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, pumpkin seeds.
