Laurie is focused on getting it right! She is coming up on her 3rd year anniversary with us!
Have you finally recovered from the Thanksgiving holiday? Are you ready for the onslaught of Christmas cookies and eggnog? This is a hard time of year to stay on the rails of healthy eating. Remember my post about the Myth of Moderation (you can read it here)? This is the time of year when our scale of moderation goes south, waaaay south.
There's nothing wrong with indulging in a few holiday treats. The challenge is that most of us then follow with, "Oh, what the hell. I've blown my macros with this Christmas cookie. I might as well eat as many as I can stuff in my face." This type of thinking does not serve us very well. What if you really could east just one? What if you really could just have one drink? If you really can, HORRAY! You're stronger than nearly everyone I know. If you can't (like me, I'm totally not able to eat just one cookie or have just one drink) then you have a decision to make. Eat it all and feel no shame or guilt. OR eat none of it and feel no shame or guilt. Either way, the goal of this season is to make it through without feeling shame or guilt. Food is amoral, it is neither good nor bad, and you are not a bad person if you eat certain foods just as much as you're not a good person if you eat certain foods. You're an imperfect human person trying your best to navigate month where people celebrate and show you how much they love you through cooking. The best we can do is decide which cookie is the most special and eat it with unbound joy. Good luck!
If you show your holiday love through cooking, try giving your friends and family this incredible bacon jam. Yes, that's what I said: BACON JAM! Click on the image for the recipe.
