Holiday Brunch, Lunch or Dinner: Fix It and Forget It!
Posted Dec 20 2008 5:38pm
How did you do this week on maintaining your weight? Writing down what I eat over the past week has been a challenge for me but I have still been eating smaller portions and being more aware of what I am putting in my mouth.
This week for many of us, the holiday intensity is kicked up a notch. The more that you have meals planned and made ahead will give you more time to enjoy and stick with a healthy eating plan. Here are a few ideas to consider. For lunch or supper, a festive soup served with bread and salad makes a complete meal and can be made ahead for the most part. Consider a few of these menu and recipe suggestions. The soup and casserole can be made ahead of time even this week and frozen:
White Bean Soup
Sweet Potato Biscuit
Green Salad with Orange, Fennel and Asparagus
Poached Pear (see December 9th blog entry for recipe)
Tortellini and Zuchinni Soup
Cornbread (try some of the healthy substitution ideas for this from November 17th blog entry)
Spinach Salad with Warm Maple Dressing
Fruit Crisp (see December 9th blog entry for recipe)
