Festive Season Balance – Tips from a Meal Prep Company
The festive season is enjoyable and exhausting in equal measure. With socialising at its peak and a ‘to do’ list larger than Santa’s present list, December is jam packed. Indulging is all part of the fun (bring on the bubbly, cheese boards and mince pies!), but if you feel like you need a bit more zen in your life right now, read on, because hail the kale is a meal prep company that believes in balance!
Prioritise sleep (when you aren’t partying!)
You’ll be amazed how much impact a good night’s sleep makes on energy levels, hunger / cravings, productivity and more. Give yourself a fighting chance by scheduling in some early nights amongst the socialising. Just like you set an alarm to get up, set an alarm for bed too. Bonus points to set it an hour before you want to go to bed to stop looking at screens. We like to have alcohol and caffeine free days between events to support healthy sleeping habits. And when we’re out? Espresso martinis!
Stay nourished with healthy meal prep
There will be night outs a plenty but let’s control what we can – breakfast and lunch. Resist the temptation to hangover binge with grease and carbs. Get your healthy meal prep sorted instead and your body will thank you. Staying nourished with good food makes all the difference when you are busy. No time to meal prep? No problem, we’ll do it for you. As a meal prep company that focuses on healthy options, we are passionate about making your life easier and healthier!
Pause for reflection
Christmas is a difficult time for many people. It can be a time of loneliness and anxiety for some. Relationships are put to the test, both with those closest to us and those we only see at Christmas. If you love the festive season and have plenty to be grateful for, it can be a wonderful thing to use the festive break to reflect. 2020 has been a funny old year and in Perth we have been much more fortunate than much of the rest of the world. Got good health? Food on the table? This is enough. We love to practise gratitude and there much research linking daily gratitude to happiness. Likewise with meditation, is this something you can work into your daily routine? Not got the time? Well actually… you DO! All you need is 60 seconds. There are plenty of guided meditations online to follow.
Share the load, share the love
Do you end up doing all the hosting? Don’t burden the lion’s share of time, effort money and cleaning up this year! Assign everyone a dish to bring and a bottle towards festive cocktails. We know that entertaining over the festive season can be stressful, so with this in mind we recently launched a range of share style festive platters. Indulgent, delicious AND healthy, they are perfect for hassle free hosting.
Finally, we would like to thank you, our beautiful customers, for your continued loyal support which allows to keep pursuing our passion of creating simple, wholesome food that makes you glow from the inside out. We would also like to thank everyone for referring friends and family members during the year, who we welcome into the hail the kale fam.
From all the team at hail the kale, we thank you for being with us through 2020 and wish you a happy festive season. Merry Christmas!
