New Years Eve is quickly approaching!
I believe that you should enjoy food with friends and family when celebrating a special event—only if you truly want to and it’s worth it, of course. There’s no reason to waste precious calories on mediocre cookies or dry mashed potatoes, you know what I’m saying? Have a few bites of the good stuff and stop there—give it your best effort.
I’m relieved that this is the last holiday until Valentine’s Day because I need some time to truly focus on my goals without interruption. I’ve made an awful lot of excuses lately for why I should indulge in something I really didn’t need to.
It’s Christmas Eve.
Only today because it’s Christmas.
We’re on vacation so it’s ok.
It’s a birthday.
This is my favorite pie.
If I eat this, my cravings will go away because I’ll feel satisfied.
We only go to this restaurant once per year.
It’s a snow day.
It’s really cold outside.
You name it and I could make an excuse for why I should eat something I shouldn’t. Heck, it’s Tuesday—isn’t that reason enough?
I’m going into the New Years holidays fully aware that I’m an excuse maker when it comes to indulgence. Each time I want to indulge, I’ll ask myself “is it worth it?” and make my choice from there.
It will help to have snacks around that are satisfying yet good for me too. Believe it or not, those foods do exist. I’ll be snacking on Blue Diamond Almonds over the holidays, specifically the Lightly Salted Almonds and Honey Roasted Almonds.
I might even share the goodness with my family. These would be great paired with raisins—yum!
What snack do you plan to share with friends and family over the New Years holiday?
