I sit here, on Christmas Eve, preparing my back on track plan, because I want to be able to fully enjoy myself tonight and the food that I am going to eat.
Christmas Eve Dinner (With the Sis and the Dad)
- Tofurky with Gravy & Stuffing
- Brussel Sprouts and Buttah
- Freshly Made Croissants
- Broccoli Slaw
- Mashed Cauliflower
And for dessert.... I am going to try and make my own Eggnog Banana Ice Cream! Blend 1 Frozen Banana with Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Brown Sugar and Rum Extract. I will update you all on how it turned out! (Update: too much cinnamon, not enough nutmeg, was a bust.)
I am celebrating Christmas on Christmas Eve because I work an evening shift tomorrow. Although I imagine there will be tons of sweets there tomorrow I am going to consciously try and choose the ones that I will love, not just like. That way I will enjoy it to fullest!
Boxing day is going to be all about the raw veggies and fruits. Smoothie, Salad, Veggies, Hummus. No sweets.
Tuesday I am picking Matthias up from the Airport in Calgary and we are going to be trying out The Coup. I am really excited for it. I am going to have the Organic Rainbow Greens salad to start, and the Greek Goddess as my main. I may enjoy a coconut chai... if I am feeling like something warm. If I want something cold I may have some White or a Phillips Longboat Chocolate Porter (Beer). For dessert (because who wouldn't?!) I hope to either split the White Chocolate Cheesecake or Vegan Chocolate Torte. It will be my final indulgence of 2011.
Starting December 28th I am going to try my best to do a "No Sugar Challenge" (yes....again) for 2 weeks. 14 days seems do-able right? I also tried my best to make it Amie-friendly, meaning I am allowing myself 1 square of dark chocolate a day. Not bad right? Take a look:
1 Square of Extra Fine Lindor Dark Chocolate, at my choice of time during the day. Any other sweetness will come from Fruit.
Once the 2 weeks are up, I hope that the habit will be broken enough to add 1 sweet treat into my diet once per week. I think that this is an acceptable amount.
We shall see how it goes :)
Hope you all have a great Christmas!
