* In December, there are also various religious holidays that are celebrated like: Christmas, Chanukah, Winter Solstice… just to name a few. My birthday is also in December! Whoo whoo!

Do you and your family have any holiday food traditions?

In my family, when the new year hits we have an orange. If the orange is sweet so will be our year. If it’s sour so will be the year. (I usually add honey or a little bit of sugar to my orange if it isn’t sweet!)My partner’s family eat 12 grapes at the stroke of midnight on New Years and with each grape you make a wish for the new year.

Is there a food celebration that you’ve never heard of before today but are excited to celebrate?

(I’m looking forward to attempting to make homemade eggnog.)

Are you anxious about the holiday celebrations and staying healthy?

Feel free to drop a line and let us know in the comments below!

Until next time,

  • Happy World Vegan Day!!! Today's lunch rice, chickpeas (channa) with spicy okra. The cucumbers and tomatoes don't really match the dish but I needed them to help balance out. The spice. Channa or chickpeas are a great source of plant based protein. πŸ‡
πŸ‡See vegans can eat more than twigs and berries! Although I'm not vegan we can all benefit from having a more veganesque lifestyle. I challenge you to find a Vegan and talk to them about what it means to be vegan.

I'm thinking Of creating a couple of focus groups to figure out how I can better help you all reach your nutrition goals. If you are interested in being a part of the focus group head over to my Facebook page (link in bio) and comment with your email address. Three focus group participants will be chosen at random to have free nutrition services ( his or her choice from one of my service packages) don't take too long to decide.
