We had our Yule with "family" last weekend and it was WONDERFUL!
Today we are having family & friends over and it's kinda a pot-luck. DH is smoking a ham I'm making three veggie dishes and have fresh veggies with EVOO & herbs & fruits with yogurt dip. Anything else is being brought by friends & family.
Bright Blessings for everyone's Holiday :) ~Lisa

Whether we celebrate this time of year as Yule, the Solstice, or even a secular Christmas gift holiday, many of us will be faced with temptation of holiday food along with our fellowship. My strategy this year is to serve more veggie sides than anything else, and to limit the baking, giving much of it away to family and friends. I'm also including healthier options with whole wheat flour and less sugar, no "taste test" bites while cooking! I'm keeping a dish of shiny red apples handy instead, to take care of that sweet tooth...my goal is to enjoy the tastes of the season, but keep it within my nutrition guidelines. It's a challenge, of course, but holding up an old pair of size 18 jeans next to my current size 11 is GREAT visual motivationemoticon

How is everyone else planning on dealing with holiday meals? Are you going to allow yourself that cheat day? Nothing wrong with that, if you feel so inclined:) Many people do.
