Hey there. As you know from my earlier post, I am changing my eating habits in an effort to get healthy and hot. 🙂 But it is hard, right? Especially during these upcoming holidays.
We have tomorrow- Thanksgiving- which is the day where it is socially acceptable to gorge ourselves with any and all food products (and even some questionable “food” products) and it is totally cool.
I know we personally have a huge Christmas party the following weekend and then of course, Christmas day. I am nervous thinking about it.
Tomorrow we are lucky enough to go to family’s for dinner. I volunteered to bring an appetizer, a dessert, sweet potatoes and rolls. To help myself with one little thing, I decided that I was going to add Pecans to the sweet potatoes. I realize to many of you, this is normal. I, however, do not like pecans and would typically not make the casserole with them so I could gorge on them (see above). However, by making the small decision to add something I don’t particularly like, I have taken sweet potatoes off the menu for myself- no cheating happening there. Its a small victory, but I will take it where I can get it.
Now to be clear, I am not telling you to ‘jack with the food’ so that it doesn’t taste delicious to family and guests. I am merely saying- perhaps bring popular items that you aren’t a fan of and serve them.
For example this weekend we are having a small Christmas Tree decorating party day- I bought 2 flavor pies that I don’t care for. They will still be decadent to my guests, but it takes the temptation away from me.
It helps me and if it helps you, well than, that’s awesome!
