Everyone in our house had a bit of an alcohol- and sugar-related hangover this morning. Well, actually â€“ our festivities lasted so late last night that Iâ€™m pretty sure those ill effects began to set in at 8 PM. We had a huge Christmas dinner, drank lots of Baileyâ€™s and coffee, ate chocolate pudding, and then I was in bed by 9:30!
The Husband stumbled into the living room this morning moaned, â€œI want breaaaakfast. Just anything but alcohol and sugar.â€
So, we made a post-Christmas breakfast:
A whole wheat burrito with leftover apple and squash stuffing, rinsed and drained pinto beans, and spinach. I made the meat-eaters of a house this same burrito with turkey instead of beans.
And about half a banana:
Other great leftover wrap ingredients:
- Cheesy broccoli
- Wild rice
- Cranberry sauce
- Sweet potato casserole
- Grilled vegetables
- Pumpkin pie <– seriously
One Healthy Addition
Although I canâ€™t give you a complete new list of healthy swaps and additions, I do have one addition to tell you about. :) Lately, Iâ€™ve been making an effort to drink 2 â€“ 3 cups of hot lemon water throughout the day. The Husband (a Doctor of Oriental Medicine) says that lemon has a detoxifying effect on the body, especially the gall bladder. Itâ€™s also suppose to aid digestion. Iâ€™ve only been doing it for about a week, so Iâ€™m not sure if itâ€™s â€˜working.â€™ However, I did drink two huge glasses of hot lemon water this morning and woke up feeling a lot better than I wouldâ€™ve normally!
Off to get some exercise in! The temperature here is dropping rapidly, and itâ€™s getting so cold outside!
