Christmas Healthy Recipes

Christmas is a time of traditional family feasts. Do not forget about the principles of healthy eating, because even Christmas meals can be healthy. What is a healthy Christmas food?


  • Turkey: Is a source of tryptophan (an essential amino acid) and is rich in protein.
  • Parsnips: This humble veg is packed with fibre, folate and manganese.
  • Cranberries: Although cranberry sauce often contains a lot of sugar, cranberries themselves are relatively low in sugar and are a source of unique polyphenols called A-type proanthocyanidin.
  • Smoked salmon  A rich source of omega-3, an important mood-boosting nutrient that can also help improve our body’s ability to manage stress.
  • Chestnuts. They are lower in calories and fat than other nuts, rich in fibre for digestive support, and a good source of vitamin C, manganese and vitamin B6.
  • Cinnamon. This fragrant spice epitomises Christmas, and also has some powerful therapeutic properties in supporting blood sugar control, and helping to conquer sugar cravings.
  • Clementines.  These delicious and festive vitamin-C packed fruits are the ultimate portable handbag snack for helping to ensure you don’t get rundown over Christmas. In fact 100g (that’s one large fruit) contains over 60% of your recommended intake of immune-boosting vitamin C.

COVID-19 Testing at American Medical Centers

We have tested thousands of patients across the country for COVID-19 since we began testing in early April. Here’s the latest information on our testing services:

Whether you have detected COVID-19 symptoms, require an Official COVID-19 Certificate for travelling purposes or if you’re wondering if you’ve previously had coronavirus — contact your local AMC.

Where is AMC testing patients for COVID-19?

We’re currently offering PCR testing to anyone interested either in the clinic or in the comfort of your home/hotel.


If you require numerous employees to be tested on the same day for an upcoming business trip, we can organise an onsite workplace testing session.

How long does it take to get back results?

Results for PCR Testing takes up to 24 hours to process. We also offer rapid testing for those requiring same-day results.

COVID-19 Fit to Fly Travel Certificates available at AMC

Upon request, we may provide a Covid-19 travel certificate for travel purposes, verified by a doctor to provide proof of a negative test result, at no additional cost. When required, a certified Covid-19 travel certificate can be presented to show you’re safe to fly and enter a country.
