Start This Holiday Week Off Right!

After this strange and often unreal year 2020, we are thinking more than ever about what is important: friendship, solidarity, love – and of course health and well-being. We from Metabolic Balance are happy to contribute to the last two points with our personalized nutrition plans. In this sense, we wish you all the best for the Christmas week –  enjoy it and stay healthy!

Happy 4th Advent!

We wish everyone a beautiful 4th Advent!
Now all the candles are burning and soon it will be Christmas Eve. Admittedly, this pandemic means that Christmas and all holidays will be vert different this year. Nevertheless, we hope that you have a relaxing and happy last Advent Sunday! No matter what you do today – we wish you wonderful hours with your loved ones whether in person or virtual!

Happy 2nd Advent!

Today marks the second week of Advent with two candles shining brightly on the Advent wreath.

We are in the middle of the Christmas season and here’s an important question for those following their Metabolic Balance plan … How are you doing? Are you being tempted by Christmas treats and drinks around you? Can you resist? Or is it hard for you to stick to your plan? We at Metabolic Balance recommend that you should not be too strict with yourself in the run-up to Christmas. Stick to the Metabolic Balance rules, stay as close to the plan as possible, but also enjoy the Christmas season with one or two cheats. It is important to do this in moderation and to deviate from the plan a little bit only once a week.

“What did you get?” – is probably THE most common question during the Christmas holidays. We ask a different question though: “What did you eat?”  

In all honesty, all the team members at Metabolic Balance have very much enjoyed our Christmas meals during the holidays. We naturally followed most of the Metabolic Balance rules, but the kitchen scales stayed in the cupboard and we didn’t really stick to rule 5 and instead mixed our proteins. If you did the same then don’t worry – all is good! We’ll get back to our plans after New Year. Who’s joining us?

Cardamom – a Precious Spice!

Its fragrance is without doubt a wonderful addition during the Holiday Season. Let us give you a few facts on this fabulous spice!

Green cardamom belongs to the ginger family and it originates from South India, Sri Lanka and Thailand. The plant is a reed-like shrub that can grow up to three metes (9′) high and it forms greenish-yellow seed pods on its branches. The pods have three compartments, with each one containing four to eight seeds that simply smell delicious. In the Middle Ages cardamom was known as a genuine treasure and today it is still one of the most expensive spices in the world after saffron and vanilla. The cardamom seeds are a popular coffee spice in Arabia and they also give curry and Asian dishes a special touch. You can either lightly squish the cardamom capsules and let them naturally enhance your dish or you can crush the pods to release the seeds, which can be ground into a powder using a mortar and pestle. Which ever way you add them though, you can be sure of a delicious dish.
