Holiday Season – in Full Swing?

Today starts the second week of advent with two candles shining brightly on the Advent wreath. We’re now properly into the Christmas season and here’s an important question for those following their Metabolic Balance plan … How are you doing? Are you tempted by Holiday Parties, treats and drinks everywhere? Can you resist? Or is it hard for you to stick to your plan?

At Metabolic Balance we recommend not be too strict during the Holiday Season. Yes, that’s right! We’re saying it’s okay to indulge a little every now and then! Just to be clear, though, we say stick to the Metabolic Balance rules and stay as close to the plan as possible – but also relax and enjoy the Holidays too. When you choose to have a sweet treat, it’s important to enjoy it in moderation of course and only once a week, if possible.

Remember, as soon as you can – go back to the Strategies of Success with Metabolic Balance – to reach your health goals and maintain your healthy life-style.

Have a happy and balanced Holiday Season! 

Holiday Season Treat

With Holiday Season in full swing, it’s definitely time for our yummy sweet ideas (only from phase 3 at the earliest of course!).  How about these chocolate mountains, for starters? 

What you’ll need:
120g walnuts
65g cacao
1 pinch of sea salt
220g dates

What to do:
Crush the walnuts in a blender. Add the cacao and a pinch of salt and mix until everything is well mixed and completely chocolate-ty brown. Wash, dab-dry the dates, then remove the seeds. Add the date halves one by one and mix again. The mixture should now be well mixed and stick together when pressed gently. Finally, press the mixture flat into a form, chill until serving and cut when cold into nice little squares or servings. Enjoy!
