We all recive gifts of cookies, cakes, pies, candy and YES!The Dreaded Fruit Cake during these few weeks. What do you do if you hate wasting food but you want to watch what you eat? Thank your gifter in a gracious manner and just give the junk food away. I give the junk food gifts to my neighbors,or I have my Kids and husband bring it to work.
The Holidays have their own special challenges to our health. Travel, parties, junk food gifts, emotional and financial stress, cold weather can all be challenging and hurt our health. For the next few weekss, I will be posting how I deal with these challenges. Follow my blog to not gain the 10 pounds the average American will gain over these few weeks.
Party time does not have to mean, ” binge out on unhealthy food time.”
For my 52nd Birthday, I made this fun and colorful pasta salad. This salad is a beautiful addition to any party table and it is gluten-free and vegan!
The ingredients are: Rice pasta, 2 different kinds for looks, and well, I had one of those half a box of pasta left situations. Frozen peas and spinach, handmade pesto, Trader Joes red pepper dip, olive, and avocado oil, salt a small amount of vegan butter garlic butter, topped with canned Trader Joes artichoke hearts and mini heirloom tomatoes.
