    What will be on your holiday table?

    Shop Now
    For those celebrating a holiday this season, what will your feast look like?

    I actually have two Christmas celebrations. One is today, since my sister is going to her in-laws. We like to have Christmas Jr. so we can see our nephew open some presents and have a nice family day.

    Christmas Jr.:
    Rack of lamb
    Roasted root veggies
    Brussels sprouts cooked in bacon fat
    Mushrooms stuffed with brie

    My sis is doing the cooking and she's totally supportive of my way of eating, which is great.

    For actual Christmas, we're cooking a goose! I've never had one before. My husband grew up in England and it's more common for holidays there. He hasn't had it since he left. Not sure what we'll put with it. I hear potatoes cooked in goose fat is about the most delicious thing ever, though.

    Christmas dinner will include pastured ham hock and roast root veggies. Breakfast we're having pastured ham slices, frittata, and pancakes/waffles. Lunch will just be veggie platter. Dessert will be all the goodies in our stockings. I found a godiva store at the mall yesterday and splurged a little. mmm... truffles.

    Our tradition is to have soup, very late at night, on Christmas Eve. This year I'm going to make Tom Yum [Spicy coconut/chicken/shrimp Thai soup]. Christmas Day I'll probably make steaks studded with peppercorns and have some mashed cauliflower and horseradish and ghee-drenched greens alongside.

    My husband's family always does a fish soup for Christmas Eve before going to a late church service. We did fish, though not soup. We made bacalao, which is a salt cod in a tomato sauce over rice. It's a Spanish thing. I might do crab cioppino for Christmas Eve this year if the crab looks good. We're basically going by what looks good at the fish counter.

    Not sure about our table but the meals we are going to will be oveflowing in what we used to eat. The key to us is not so much what is on the table but making sure we remain vigilant about falling off the wagon. If we have an urge to have some dressing we will consider it. Thus far, no cravings for crap. Looking forward to the challenge and of course the ham and turkey and salads.

    Good luck everyone

    It's going to be either stinky hot or pouring with rain on Christmas day this year. That won't stop us from having a traditional roast though. Lots of veges and salads. Fresh summer fruit for dessert. There will be non-primal fare for others but most of what we do for Christmas is fairly primal anyway.

    Breakfast I'm starting with steamed greens, poached eggs, smoked salmon smothered in hollandaise. Lunch its roast duck stuffed with apple and proscuitto and topped with a honey glaze. Roasted and steamed vegetables and chocolate mousse for dessert. Festivals are those times of year where nothings off limits. Although I still dont feel like eating grain. Dinner time will be mulled cider, fruit and cheese platter served on slices of cucumber rather than crackers.

    You're never going to get to the top of the stairs if you don't walk up them.
