Christmas seems to be a day that we all overeat on rich and heavy foods, but it doesn’t have to be that way. There are many options for some of the traditional foods that we are used to with a twist that will not leave you feeling deflated after already deciding your New Years Get Well Resolution goal only a few days away

To start …………. go for some tasty Canapes

Sugar Snap peas filled prawns with Sweet Chilli and Lime

Crisp Baby Vegetables with Babaganoush

Fresh Oysters with lemonade fruit vinegarette

Rice Paper rolls with (skinless) Bbq Duck (buy one from your nearest chinese bbq shop and char sui sauce

Whole Baked Ham and salad  yep bake it and clove stud it but cover in grain mustard over the usual bourbon and honey or maple syrup glaze. Serve it on a bed of fresh rocket with figs and freshly steamed or bbq asparagus no oil needed

Turkey A seriously healthy option but again its what you serve it with. try making a tasty Thai Turkey Curry just like chicken but easy on the coconut milk and it can be made the day  before with a cucumber yogurt if you want some heat. If you insist on the roast make a quinoa stuffing instead of bread

Roast Vegetables You don’t have to miss out on these babies, however go easy on the spuds, peel sweet potato, pumpkin, beetroot, parsnip, onions and garlic head cut in half and a few baby potato,s in a little olive oil, sea salt and cracked pepper and roast until golden

The Grande Finale

Mango and Lime Granita so easy and everybody love mango

Baked Fetta wrapped in vine leaves with fresh herbs

Chewy Meringue with whipped coconut cream and fresh berries

Dark Chocolate and whole orange pudding with Christmas spiced ricotta cheese

Berry Jelly with Champagne sorbet

Do most of the Prep work the day or evening  before so your not slaving away all day

And here is Cheers to a great Christmas day of food that will get you on track, Happy Cooking and remember drink  your favorite in moderation or spritzers or vodka with low sugar mixers and fruit infusions why not add some spiced kumquats to your vodka and soda
