Advent Calendar Day 21 – A Little Healthy Fare

We’ve been making and eating Christmas cookies and fudge the past few days. And looking at my Christmas menu, we’re not exactly living healthy right now. Of course that’s ok, it’s the Holidays. I do plan to cook and eat a lot healthier starting a few days after Christmas and may try to sneak in a few more healthy meals between now and then.

Hillbilly Housewife Advent Calendar Day 13 – Healthy Eating

Between the cookies and other Christmas treats, we haven’t exactly been eating healthy the last few days. Ok, who am I kidding… we haven’t eaten all that clean since Thanksgiving. I’m feeling the pounds creeping on and my shoulder is starting to ache again… all good signs that I need to clean up my act a bit and eat something that’s good for my body.

Hillbilly Housewife Advent Calendar Day 13I’m determined to cook healthy meals for my family until Christmas. Yes, we’ll be having the occasional cookie or a piece of cake, and of course there will be plenty of not so healthy treats on Christmas. But I want to make an effort to keep our main 3 meals each day healthy with plenty of veggies and lean meat. Are you with me?
