Jamie Oliver’s Easy Christmas Countdown will offer up the chef’s stress-free guide to Christmas lunch. The chef will set out a Christmas Eve and Christmas Day plan, preparing a turkey with herb butter and crispy skin.
He told Radio Times: “I pushed meat down, pushed veggie up, got more sleep and more movement.”
So what did he eat instead? Jamie replaced meat with nuts.
He said: “They make you half as likely to have a heart attack. Feed them to your kids as well.”
Additionally, Jamie only drinks on the weekend in a bid to keep his weight down and remain healthy.
He said: “Your average Brit drinks booze. I’m not telling you what to do, but my rhythm now only drinks at the weekend.
“It’s about a consciousness and knowing you’re doing something and being more mindful.”
Jamie went on: “I lost 12 kilos quite quickly and I didn’t do it through not eating. I ate a lot, more than I was used to.”
In a previous interview with the Mail Online, Jamie said: “I thought seaweed was hippy, globetrotting stuff but our ancestors ate seaweed. It has got a load of iodine and is the most nutritious vegetable in the world.”
