Oh My! It’s Foodie Fest Time!

Oh my! It’s foodie fest time—the season of pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, and family gatherings! I look forward to the family gatherings, but not the added weight that accompanies all the festivities!

Anita Renfroe reminds us that you are what you eat. Enjoy this short clip, and remember Proverbs 23:2: “Don’t gobble your food, don’t talk with your mouth full. And don’t stuff yourself; bridle your appetite” (the Message Bible).

Do you have any advice to share on how to avoid gaining extra pounds this holiday season? Even better, can you sing your advice?

In Him together, Susan Gaddis

    I rarely gain on Thanksgiving because I am so exhausted from cooking and cleaning that the meal doesn’t even look good to me! It’s those blasted leftovers that stick to my hips!

    Hysterical!!! Once again, the Message says it like it is!!!! Happy Thanksgiving, Susan.

    Use plain yogurt instead of sour cream; don’t make all your comfort foods, pick only a couple. Then add some other goodies that are not as big a temptation.

    I cooked all day, Jeanette, and thought of you.
    Thanks, Brooks, glad you stopped by the blog. Now if we can just connect for coffee!
    Lilly, I can just hear you singin’ that great advice. 🙂
    For my part–I’m sticking to my “way of eating” of no dairy, no gluten, and no sugar this holiday season. I made some desserts just for my sweet tooth–thanks to Stevia. When everyone else is having pumpkin pie and cheesecake, I’ll be having my own bonbons, chocolate cups of cream, and sweet potato pudding.
    Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
