Goddess morning Royals. First, give praise and worship to the all High.
I know we all like to eat but for some, they love to eat. This isn’t something new, some people even made a career out of it, as well just enjoy it. Obesity though is also something that isn’t new and well something that is deadly to those who each out of control, either for a disorder or “just because they love it.” I am not criticizing anyone for their love of food nor their weight but I do want to see you all as I pass by and know that you will be there and not just remember this is where I meet you but you are no longer with us, for this exact reason.
The love of food isn’t a bad thing but it could be a took much thing. When it comes down to eating I can tell you this, eating until you are stuffed isn’t the way to go. It is more than okay to save some for later, or take it with you to go. Let me tell you what my biggest problem is, when I cook I manage to overcook so my family over eats. I tell them though you don’t have to eat it all here, you are more then entitled to take some home for later or the next day meal. All you have to do is stick it in the over to warm it up. For those who can’t wait, the microwave maybe your friend, but either way don’t overdo it just because it is there. I only bring this up because the holiday is upon us and I know that a lot of us will be cooking for Thanksgiving I just want everyone safe and around for years to come.
Not everyone knows how to cook healthy and that is fine. This is when control should come in place. A serving spoon of everything is more then enough to satisfy everyone. I know that they will come back for second helpings but that when you need to let them know that you made it in a to go plate and they should leave room for desert. This isn’t mean just helping with control, if you know that they have none.
My dinner for Thanksgiving usually consist of :
- 26lb Turkey
- 15lb or more of Ham
- Roast Duck or Lamb
- Fried Cabbage
- Baked Macaroni and Cheese
- Shrimp Macaroni Salad
- Candy Yams
- Pasta Salad
- Mixed Greens
- Corn on the Cob
- Mashed Potatoes or Baked Potatoes
- Crab Cakes or Crab balls
- Strawberry Short Cake
- Pineapple Upside down Cake
- Lemon Pound Cake
- Sweet Potato Pie
- Apple Pie
- Ice cream at least three flavors
- Berry Berry Surprise
- Variety of Drinks
- Variety of Breads
- Bread Pudding
- Rice Pudding
It sounds like a lot but I always manage to leave off dishes for the Christmas holidays. With all this food, I serve in Proper Proportions just to make sure everyone gets enough and save room for desert. I know it is a heart attack waiting to happen. Reason I only spurge on this holiday any other day I am eating healthy and my family hates it. They can’t wait for this holiday to get here. It is the only time I go crazy with sugar. This holiday will be death of someone if I let them go crazy eating out of control. So, on this day, I don’t use and serving spoon of food but half that size just for portion control. They appreciate me for it in the long run but hate me right then and there for it. It doesn’t bother me, I just ignore them and move on to the next person.
A eating disorder or obesity isn’t nothing to laugh at nor disregard or to dismiss easily and if you know someone who could use help. Please by all means help them to keep them around. Love them wherein they are not loving themselves. Over eating and snacking leads to a lifetime of heart ache, disappointment, state of depression, devastation and most of all dead. Let’s keep our love one close and full of life.
Only because I care do I tell you to eat smaller portions even if you decide not to eat healthy, that is on you. It can save your life.
Sending you all love and kisses. #GoddessLove
