Ok, Ok, I know, I’ve been slow with this one. What can I say – the last two Wednesdays were Christmas Day and New Year’s Day! But I know there are some people out there who would like to know what was eaten on Christmas Day – heck one person even asked me outright!
So without further ado (yes, that’s right, I checked) here is my What I ate on Christmas Day:
I have to apologise for the breakfast picture – I was clearly so excited and keen to get on with my presents that I took a baaaad picture. It is a small bowl of porridge topped with cacao nibs, alongside a protein hot chocolate to get me started for the day.
Ben and I opened our ‘stocking’ presents, then we were off to my Mum’s for Christmas lunch.
Mum did an amazing spread with turkey, stuffing, sausage meat, pigs in blankets, 5 types of veg, roast potatoes and gravy. I only took what I needed so my plate consisted of turkey, carrots, swede and brussels sprouts, as a special treat I had a bit of the turkey liver – yum! That was enough to leave me full, and I wasn’t sure I could finish all my veg – ok, I’m an eating lightweight!
After dinner we watched the Queen’s speech and then went for a walk before opening more presents and playing games.
My Nan opened a huge box of chocolates. I saved one for later 🙂
In the evening while everyone was enjoying turkey sandwiches (I make awesome turkey sandwiches!) I enjoyed a cashew nut salad – yum!
What did you eat on Christmas Day? Did you stick with your healthy eating plans – or did you go all out and have a good time?
