    I think a lot of people here say they will enjoy all the Christmas day food etc just for the one day.
    As for lunches cold meats, hard boiled eggs, tinned tuna, salmon or sardines with salad, homemade soup or if you like it a fry up.
    I make a egg pizza sometimes by making an omelette for the base then topping it with some tomato sauce or tomato paste any meat I have in the fridge like ham, salami and cold chicken, sliced tomato, olives and anchovies.. because I love them... and plenty of grated cheese and pop it under the grill until the cheese melts. You can make a fairly large one of these and put half in the fridge for another day

    Mediterranean type food for me.
    I have got a large bag of almond, and coconut flour in though, so some christmas bakes in the offing.
    And I intend to be very sociable, not worry overly, and accept that any weight I gain I'll be losing in the New Year, by diet, and down to the gym a lot more than now.
