Metabolic Balance and Christmas
Can the Metabolic Balance guidelines also be taken in consideration at Christmas? Can you stick to principles like “only one type of protein per meal” even within an entire menu? Of course. How about the following 3-course menu, for example:
For the appetizer, we avoid protein and recommend a delicious avocado and apple salad. In the main course we feast duck breast with red cabbage and, as dessert ,roasted apple with sesame and vanilla pulp tastes simply wonderful. With this in mind, we wish you a delicious and happy Christmas!
From all of us at Metabolic Balance,
we wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Duck Breast with Cabbage
Today we have a very classic dish for Christmas: duck breast with cabbage! Give this recipe a try and let us know what you think!
1 serving of duck breast
1⁄2 Tbsp. of rapeseed oil
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper
Wash duck breast, drain and score the skin in a crosshatch pattern, making sure it is not deep enough to cut into the meat. Season the duck breast with salt and pepper. Heat a pan without fat and place the duck breast with the skin side down in the pan and cook for 2 minutes. Then keep warm in the oven for about 20 minutes at 200°F (100°C). Clean the red cabbage and cut into fine strips. Cook the cabbage in rapeseed oil and season with cinnamon, salt, pepper, juniper berries, bay leaf, and balsamic vinegar. Serve the duck over the cabbage and enjoy!
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!
Today we wish a Happy Hanukkah to everyone who is celebrating the start of this holiday tonight!
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.
Countdown to 2020
Once again, the countdown has begun to welcome the New Year. The champagne corks are ready to be popped, and around the world friends and families get together to welcome the new year – and new beginnings . It’s especially exciting as we welcome a whole new decade! We wish you all a wonderfully Happy New Year and would like to thank you for your support sharing our posts, likes and comments in the past year: You’re fantastic!
p.s.: Since we love our pets and wildlife – and know how scared they are of the loud noises of fireworks – we are glad that our picture is mute. Please consider people as well as animals who are scared.
“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?
