So Christmas is just around the corner, and dinner with the family is going to be filled with pies, stuffing, potatoes, and cookies. When I started the Primal diet I was captured by the fact that so many people were in great shape when they didn't spend their whole day thinking about food. This is great news to me, a person who has always obsessed over food.
In the same vein, I've never wanted to be that guy. You know? The guy who asks for a meatless dinner at his friends house because he won't eat meat? Not can't mind you, but won't. I see a lot of people talking about primal dinners for the Holidays, or asking for Primal dishes and I wonder if that is not the same thing? Just a new food obsession, but one that is healthy.
For me, my plan is to enjoy my normal Christmas dinner, but to offset it by fasting the day before, and IF the day after. This is something I'd probably do anyway since I will be so stuffed. I figure that Grok would have never passed up a good meal because Grok didn't get to be picky about what he ate. I figure that if I don't have any control over the meal choices - which I don't at the holidays - why spend time worrying over it. Just enjoy friends, family, and a plate of tasty food.
