4. Healthy Servings

Make sure you fill your plate with all the healthy servings during the first course. This will get your stomach running and ready for the second course which can be calorific and heavy. The healthy first course will also fill up your stomach and leave little room for heavy food.


5. Cup of Tea

Keep yourself hydrated at all times. Water plays a major role in the digestion process and prevents a possible hangover if you overdose on alcohol.

A word of caution: Protecting all your festive food is as important as preparing it. Make sure to take the necessary steps to preserve the food once prepared. Left in the open, they could get infected by bacteria or other microorganisms, leaving way for food poisoning.
