The true meaning of Christmas is lost in an ocean of marketing mania, purchasing pillages and food fests

1


Jesus probably sits up in heaven rolling his eyes saying, “Father, forgive them, they know not what they do” as he watches us spend all our money and force our bodies to consume food and drink in quantities we do not need, all in his name.

This Christmas let’s contribute to the world by watching what we think, eat, drink and do.

Do…

  • Eat loads of fresh fruit and vegetables that have not been drowned in oil, cream or other sauces and gravies
  • Eat moderate amounts of lean meats and other protein alternatives like nuts, legumes and tofu
  • Eat small quantities of high fibre breads and cereals
  • Eat reduced fat dairy products in moderation
  • Extend loving kindness
  • Give kind deeds or words instead of gifts
  • Exercise your body
  • Be appreciative that you have food to eat, a house to be in, and people that care about you

You don’t need…..

  • A food focus
  • Shortbread biscuits full of fat and sugar
  • Dips and chips
  • Lollies and soft drinks and more than ½ cup of fruit juice because after the first half glass you have all the vitamin C you need for the day and may as well be drinking soft drink because it’s cheaper and the same calories
  • Pork crackle
  • Skin on the turkey or chook
  • Fat on roast meats
  • Five different kinds of meat at one meal – ham, turkey, roast pork, roast beef and chicken
  • Mince pies & other high calorie Christmas fare ranging from rum balls to white Christmas and fruit cake
  • Three types of dessert ranging from Plum pudding through to trifle and pavlova (especially after you have just pigged out for main course)
  • Chocolates
  • More than 2 standard drinks of alcohol for women or 4 for men
  • and,  unfortunately the list goes on.

Merry Christmas, and if you can’t be good, be careful!!
