However, I do believe there is such a thing as over-indulgence. A little bit of anything is good and a lot of anything can be bad! Over the past three weeks I have been lucky enough to celebrate the holiday season with family & friends at great cocktail parties, dinners and nights out. I am proud of myself for embracing the quality time and ordering dessert again and again (I am a savory girl and usually pass on dessert so I can have more cheese!).
Not only do I have a plethora of pictures and funny stories from the past few weeks but I am guessing also an expanding waist line.
|mmmm lemon icing!|
|appetizers and more appetizers every where I turn....|
|Dessert? Yes Please!|
|More dessert? Twist my arm.. YES please!!!|
|One more dessert.... why not!|
Not sure if this makes sense but after 3 weeks of indulging this Sailing Foodie is craving vegetables! (like the ones below...)
|veggies in soup....|
|red red peppers!|
|summer tomatoes.. how do I love thee?|
|Kitchen Sink bean & veggie salad... YES Please!!!|
I think my body has had its share of holiday indulgences and I really just need a giant kitchen sink salad to get my energy back! So today I am going to go through the cabinets, search the weekly market circulars & cookbooks and plan out some yummy healthy & energizing meals to kick start 2011!!
I would love to know what recipe is your go-to meal when you need to get back on the balanced eating wagon?
Happy New Year everyone!!!
