The holiday season is a truly special time. No matter what you celebrate, this time of the year is filled with joy, giving, family & friends, and some great food.
Problem is, so many people don’t allow themselves to enjoy the food because they’re so set on their nutritional goals.
Look, goals are great, and I respect anyone determined enough to keep themselves on track. But we let food rule our lives as if it’s some kind of punishment, when it really is the total opposite.
You’re never going to look back on your life and remember that one Christmas where you nailed your 100 grams of carbs. It doesn’t matter. But you will remember baking & enjoying cookies with your grandma. You’ll remember enjoying a cup of hot chocolate and watching a terrible movie after playing out in the snow. You’ll remember the gingerbread house building competition.
Think about what is important in your life. Is avoiding 20g of sugar more important to you than the happiness and memories that dessert with your family will bring you? You have 364 other days to stay on track. You’re allowed to enjoy yourselves for one day.
Merry Christmas, ya filthy animals. Enjoy yourselves!
