Reasons we eat on special occasions??????
This is the answer I have not found. Why is everything from Valentines chocolates to Christmas fruit cake considered tradition?
We buy, and more than likely toss out, more food on Thanksgiving than most people can even afford to buy in a month.
Today, thinking about this weekends Superbowl coming up, GOBRONCOS!!!!!
I decided I am going to continue the tradition of having foods, but, I am changing things a bit.
I plan to make a small pot of chicken white bean chili. and instead of chips and dip, i am going to put out a tray of celery and carrots with yogurt dip.
No crackers, no chips, no alcohol. and no pizza or varieties of fattening dips or cookies!!
Super Bowl in my house is a big deal, especially since the Broncos are playing this one.
One tradition that started a few years ago was hot fudge sundaes.
None of that this year!!!
I will have some yogurt instead.
Valentines Day isnt so bad for me, my honey knows better than to spend a fortune on roses, something I do not want or need, and he knows alot better than a box of chocolates.
Instead, I would rather have him do a little housework and maybe give a nice back rub, which I find myself needing more these days.
Besides, the Walking Dead returns that night, so I know what I will be doing for at least 3 hours!!!!
What are some food traditiions that you have found a healthier alternative for???
