How to indulge at Christmas

I made a Christmas pudding on Sunday.  Made from scratch and steamed it.  Was very easy to do!

 

 

I took it out of the fridge just now and…when I took the cover off, the smell just blew my mind.

 

 

Fruity, buttery, spicy, citrus HEAVEN!  Oh my!

 

 

I just couldn’t get enough of it…..

 

 

I now have images flooding my mind of how good this will taste hot with cream/ice cream and homemade custard (yes I do that from scratch too!)

 

 

A few weeks ago I did a blog on Festive Food Challenge

 

 

The point of which is to stop and think about what you do with food at Christmas.

 

 

I’m asking you to……

-think about how conscious you are with your eating habits over the next few weeks

-do you use the festive period as an excuse to be greedy?

-do you stress out and wonder how to handle all this food?

-do you stop and work up an appetite for real food that makes your mouth water with anticipation?

 

 

Because to indulge….is to….

-allow yourself something you desire
-allow yourself to feel the pleasure of something you enjoy.

 

 

There is nothing wrong with that is there?

 

 

To indulge is to not switch off, overeat portion sizes and become a snacking zombie.

 

 

Indulging in the way I have described is when you feel tuned in!  

 

 

This way is good for you.

 

 

Action:
-what are you planning on eating that is a quality, true indulgence?

 

 

Leave a comment below. I’d love to chat with you about this topic!

 

 

Ponder this….you have control over your health when you have control over knowing what does into your food.

 

 

So put on your sexy apron and get cooking!
