I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your friends and family. I hope you indulged intentionally, ate mindfully, laughed ceaselessly and loved massively.
Let’s talk about Christmas dinner for a minute. For anyone who has ever cooked Christmas dinner, or contributed to it, you know there is a food hierarchy. Turkey and dessert are at the top, while cranberry sauce and veggies are demoted to the bottom.
Last Christmas, I was responsible for vegetables. For some reason, my family did not trust me. This Christmas, I was in charge of dessert. And, if you know me, you know I love surprising people with dessert that is actually healthy for you. So, I made two vegan pies: pumpkin and apple. I added a vegan coconut whipped cream on top.
I was pretty nervous that my traditional, meat and potatoes, Dutch family would not like it, but here’s the thing: they didn’t even know. They couldn’t tell the difference! Christmas miracle indeed.
Now, on to the thing I really want to talk about.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been alluding to some exciting things happening on Miss Epicure in 2016.
Exciting Thing #1!
I have started a new blog! I would like to introduce you all to Bourbon + Honey, my new lifestyle blog. I’m covering everything from food and fitness to fashion and fun. I am launching the blog as soon as the NYE ball drops. So, stay tuned! Check out my Instagram and Twitter for the official announcement!
Exciting Thing #2!
I want to introduce you to a new series I am working on with my lovely friend Britney, who runs the fabulous nutrition blog Savour and Shine.
This series, called Eat for Your Health, tackles some of our society’s biggest health issues, from arthritis to atherosclerosis, diabetes to dementia and obesity to osteoporosis. We will be focusing on how we can use proper nutrition to manage the symptoms of these issues.
How is this going to work?
You are going to learn about the micro and macro nutrition aspects of managing the symptoms of these diseases over at Savour and Shine. After that, you’re going to head back here for a week’s worth of meals, conveniently packaged in a beautiful meal plan.
Let’s get 2016 started on the right foot, without the resolutions.
See you all in the New Year!
