1. Fish Cakes – I know it’s not really ‘Christmas-sy’ but hey it tastes DELICIOUS, it’s easy to make, affordable and Healthy.

2. Pumpkin Pie – Make your own; so you know exactly what goes in there!

3. SALAD – there are so many healthy, delicious and filling salads to add to your main dish.

4. Kebabs – who DOESN’T love a Kebab!?

5. Sweet Potato {The healthier option} – there are hundreds of recipes out there. {Try them out!}

So, as my first post in this {very exciting} venture of mine I am going to share the one thing most people DREADSnacking, nibbling, eating small quantities of food ALL.THE.TIME – whatever you want to call it!

Remember; everything in moderation!

Do you have a favourite snack?
