I have been practicing giving thanks everyday this November to prepare myself for the upcoming Christmas season. It fills me to realize how blessed I am. The family dinner was great Saturday but seeing family was even better. Not making myself sick through over eating was the greatest. I did eat. I had winter squash soup, turkey, Table spoon of seven layer salad, table spoon potato casserole, spoonful of carrot and apple, table spoon of Kale and got that pumpkin pie. My niece made a pumpkin walnut pie from scratch. The shell was walnut with a all natural fruit spread glaze on bottom and filled with pumpkin and coconut sugar filling and walnut crunch on top! It was wonderful! While not sugar free it did not shock my system and I had a whole slice later in the evening. I will be asking for this recipe today :). Although I don't need to make it just collect it for the future! I do not need a whole pie to eat!
I had like 19,000 steps so that is a great day. not over eating, sampling good food, burning calories!
