While we may have hit a low point over here in terms of nutrition, we sure are having a dang good time. So that's good. And tomorrows a new day so it's okay. And even though we're still headed to multiple potluck and cookie parties where there's sure to be multiple large tables full of holiday food, I'm okay with it. Actually--I'm loving all this holiday eating/celebrating/tradition keeping and tradition starting. It's totally floating my Christmas boat.
But back to the low point (nutritionally speaking.) I think it all started at the local Bob's Big Boy (long story) and kinda snowballed from there. We ended up at a family Christmas cookie party--a tradition that started way back when I was still saying things like, "I need 10 more minutes to do my bangs." --which means we've been doing this since the 80's. It's awesome and weird and we try not to miss it. We eat, we drink, and we make a lot of cookies. And we eat a lot of cookies. And frosting. And food coloring. Let's just say the next morning our youngest family member went number two and it was blue.
Electric blue. Obama-Hope-poster blue. It was shocking. But not shocking enough to make me run to the store for veggies. No. Instead I started my errand filled day with a donut and vanilla americano which held me until I found myself in a full-blown low blood sugar meltdown in line at the craft store at 11:30. (why was I at the craft store?) Then I found myself at the drive-thru ordering a bag of greasy non-food so I wouldn't pass out...and, you get the picture.
But like I said, it's no sweat. We're okay over here. Actually we're better than okay. This holiday month has been the best so far and I can't help but keep thinking: is it really better to be safe than sorry?
Here's a little holiday drink idea. And here's what you'll need:
Fresh pomegranate seeds
-pour some champagne in a flute and float some pomegranate seeds. It's super pretty and the seeds tend to travel up and down as the glass sits. Not sure why. But it ends up looking really cool and pretty.
