Merry Christmas! Here's a heart attack.

Saturday, December 28, 2013

Why does the word "holiday" bring to mind rich foods? Worse, why does it mean the foods HAVE to be unhealthy. I mean--people get ANGRY when you so much as suggest making a dish healthier.

Personally, I find Brussels sprouts and pomegranate arils decadent. Turkey with cranberries is divine. Roasted potatoes? Yum. Honey glazed carrots are almost dessert.

Let's stop trying to kill ourselves and each other slowly in the name of celebration.

    I completely agree with this! What's more, the extra food and sugar makes everyone grouchy, and where's the fun in that?! But food is love and socialability in our world, sadly...

  Holidays just seem to be an abundance of all of the good and not so good foods. I enjoy glazed carrots and they are almost like a dessert as well as sweet potatoes! Everything in moderation. Just because it's available do not mean we have to overindulge! Let's enjoy the holidays for what they are meant to be celebrated for! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    This Christmas was allot healthier than all the other Christmas' that I have been to with my husband that passed in Feb. I was surprised that it was healthy and a little fried food there. No mac n cheese or potato salad, but broccoli, salad some rice and then meat. They has some chicken wings that I think was bought from KFC but most of the people ate the steak and other healthy foods. The kids ate the chicken
