It’s beginning to taste a lot like Christmas. It seems like since the month of December began, my husband and I have been on the run from one Christmas function to another. You know as well as I do, that coming face to face with delicious Christmas goodies can derail all the hard work you’ve done this year to make yourself a healthier you.
My solution to this problem has been to bring something I know is healthy, delicious, and that will have universal crowd appeal. I have been struggling with keeping the straight and narrow over the holidays but have done fairly well. Now, I’m not saying that I haven’t had the occasional holiday cookie or a piece of that homemade caramel cake I made for Thanksgiving. Whenever I have indulged, I’ve eaten healthier options the rest of the meal.
My recipe for this last issue of the year is a true Christmas theme. Everyone loves the 12 days of Christmas, so I am offering the 12 “Angel” Eggs of Christmas. This time of year, no one needs anything deviled in their lives, so Angel Eggs it is! These eggs are great alternatives to all the heavy appetizers floating around this time of year, and with the 12 different versions, you are sure to find one that will become your favorite.
Go ahead! Indulge! Enjoy Christmas and all your holiday activities, but take the time to make some healthy choices so that once January 1 comes around, you will already be headed in the right direction.
