It’s the usual story isn’t it? We all indulge a little too much over Christmas. All those delicious chocolates and treats we were bought by friends and family, all that booze we were gulping down, rich meals and decadent cheese boards… I could go on but you know the rest. It’s all too easy to pile on those pounds and forget about all the healthy food we should be eating… But hey, it was Christmas thought right?! Yep, I am JUST as guilty.
