Well the Festive season is upon us….
Time to embrace the season of giving;
Share your time with family & friends;
Indulge — just enough to enjoy the festivities,
& Reflect on a year that was….
With all the temptations at our fingertips…how do we avoid the trap of overindulging on the “baddies”??? Being mindful of what you are eating & drinking is the key!!!
If you’re organising a party this season, think outside the square of dips & rice crackers, puff pastry finger foods etc. Think fresh & wholefood crudités served with Homemade Veggie Dips; mini Veggie Stacks topped with Herbs; Thai Tofu Cakes with Chili dipping sauce; Prawn & Avocado Rice Paper rolls; or Chicken & Herb Meatballs just to name a few healthy alternatives.
As for the drinks…..think about including some fresh, colourful mocktails to give that visual “WOW” factor….without the punch. Use fresh berries, melons, mangoes, juices & herbs to ignite your taste buds. If you like to enjoy some wine, why not try organic & preservative free options. They can be found from all the great wine regions around Australia – & are especially helpful if you react to the sulphites found in ordinary wines…enjoy responsibly.
