Its that time again where we head full steam ahead toward New Years Eve as if what we don’t achieve, who we don’t catch up with or finalize before the stroke of midnight December 31st, means failure. It is also the time that we tend to start to eat more accelerating into full on gluttony until we spiral down the leftovers trail as of Boxing Day. Then there are the pressures of shopping for gifts, sending out cards, cooking masses of food and spending time with people because we feel obliged to rather than really want to be with.
I hear you, the pressure is amazing and the truth is, it does not have to be this way. This season can be just as sane as you wish it to be depending on the choices you make. So I’ve compiled some suggestions that you may find useful, recipes you may find helpful, if not delicious and thoughts for you to ponder.
So take a look at the attachment and as a dear friend once used to tell me when she invited you to eat her meals, ‘leave what you don’t like’, (of course she was a brilliant cook and I always loved everything!). The only thing you must do this time of year, because it can only help, is to be grateful for what you do have, what you can do and that you are alive. Everything else, can only improve.
