When you talk about healthy eating for the Christmas dinner it goes without saying that states the thing that you need to do is eat the proper portions. But you might be surprised that a Christmas dinner and extremely healthy. Take a look at some of the common foods. We can start with Turkey. Turkey is extremely lean and it's packed full of protein and cooking turkey with the skin o ensures that is extremely moist but the juices don't get so into the meat adding calories. Potatoes contain vitamin C in fact they have more vitamin C than a glass of orange juice. Cranberries and brussels sprouts are full of antioxidants and we know this can help fight cancer of the breast colon and prostate. Does or doesn't even have to be unhealthy. Mince pies have dried fruit is also provides a concentrated mix of antioxidants as well as fiber and iron. Finally if you plan to listen to Nat King Cole is you have your chestnuts roasting on an open fire whenever the chestnuts are low in fat they have a high starch content and may contain vitamins B and C we shall fight heart disease. The most important point I'll say once again it all comes down to portion size
