I love Christmas – literally, I love everything about Christmas!!
I love that you get to spend time with people you love, I love the people tend to be happier around Christmas, I love that you get time off work most of all I love that it’s fine for you to sit and watch telly.
I’m not really one likes to sit around and watch telly for hours on end, but I feel it becomes acceptable over Christmas. After coming back from New York and not getting over the jetlag for a while I really could not get enough of just sitting on the sofa getting comfy and watching a good film!!
This year was actually the first year that I watched it’s a wonderful life and actually was wonderful!
But I’m sure you’ll all admit that sitting on the sofa watching a film is not complete without a few snacks. Christmas seems to be a time where people got a bit snack mad at overindulge, but I don’t think that has to be the case. Healthy snacks are great because they fill you up, they satisfy your snack craving and it doesn’t make you feel really guilty after you’ve eaten it!
One of my favourite go-to healthy snacks is simply an apple cored and cut up into segments with a little bit of peanut butter spread on top!! It is such an easy snack, it doesn’t cost a lot and it is soooo good!
Another favourite is popcorn. I have a popcorn maker so you don’t need to have any added oils or butter, it is simply just popcorn. I’m a fan of it just plain, but if you want to be a little bit naughtier you can add a drizzle of butter, sugar, or some cinnamon sugar.
I have stolen this idea from the cinema – Once your popcorn is all popped and in the bowl, sprinkle your favourite naughty snack over the popcorn! For me, that would be a bag of peanut M&Ms. If you are sharing this popcorn is reduces the amount of naughtiness you are eating!
Although I don’t want to spend too much of my free time sitting on the sofa watching telly, I am going to make an effort to have a movie night more. I think it is really important to sit down and relax regularly.
