The festive season is upon us! As we give our prayers and thanks for getting through the difficult COVID-19 restrictions, we may not realise that another problem awaits us!
Yes, it is food, glorious food! As we go back to socialising, some of us who have worked hard to maintain our weight and figures during the COVID-19 years may end up going back to our old habits of eating.
Whether or not that is a good thing, our health is the most important thing that we have and as such eating well during the festive season is important.
It is the season of Bak kwa soon! Before indulging in your favourite CNY goodies, it is always good to have an idea of how many calories you are consuming.
- Bak Kwa
Don’t be fooled into thinking that Bak Kwa is just pork, so pork = protein and it should deem as “healthy” right?
One slice of Bak Kwa contains about 300 calories, which is almost equal to 3 bowls of white rice.
So think again before you gobble down another piece of Bak Kwa.
- Pineapple Tarts
Pineapple is a symbol of prosperity and wealth in Chinese culture. Who could resist that creamy buttery pastry?
However always bear in mind that 1 piece of the tart is about 90 calories, and we all know that no one will stop at just 1 piece. So do take note of the calorie intake as your hand reaches into that tart can.
- Kueh Lapis
My personal favourite! Another yummy snack and yet so “sinful”.
One slice contains about 230 calories, and you will need 90mins of house chores to burn off that piece of kueh.
Getting back your figure after CNY
Gaining extra pounds after CNY can be unavoidable because who can resist those CNY goodies?
Thankfully, there are slimming treatments that help us get rid of those unwanted fats around the belly and love handles after CNY.
Many people book their slimming appointments before CNY too – so that they feel less guilty while indulging in food during the CNY period.
