It's holiday season again! Thanksgiving, Christmas, Newyears... My family also has a large dinner sometime in January; whenever they can all get together, to celebrate Awenhai and the oncoming springtime and harvests. Out of any holiday meal, that one is the biggest and we normally end up cooking food for 3 days prior. Although the food is all quite healthy, you're expected to eat until you burst, basically. -__- NOW-- what is your holiday eating strategy? Do you normally just disregard your usual diet rules for one or two days and eat what you want? Do you follow your rules strictly or maybe not bother with 'holidays'? Do you pace yourself? ~~~~~~~~~~~~ I end up having 2-3 of the same dinners over the span of 3 days each year, usually... 3 thanksgivings, 3 Christmases; and it's way too much for me. I tend to really pace myself. I eat as much as I normally eat + maybe a bit more for dessert. ~~~~~~ Also~ if you have any ideas for healthier alternative recipes, share!
