i am -gasp- hounded OUT!
after a serious food binge in vegas, i'm just exhausted and don't want anything to do with the normal holiday goodie train. sadly, i have family coming in tonight so i know we'll be cooking and eating all sorts of treats.
i yearn for some simple flavors- crisp raw vegetables, clear broth... i've been having cucumbers, miso soup and sorbet.
what are everyone's hound recovery techniques for when your belly and tastebuds want a break from the foie, the fried, and all that is fatty?
For breakfast - Oatmeal or toast and coffee.
For lunch - cottage cheese and some saltines
For dinner - a crisp salad with vinaigrette, a simple broth or tomato-based soup, and some crusty bread.
Oh - and LOTS AND LOTS of WATER.
Lots of simply cooked veggies, grains like couscous or bulgur, fresh salads.
The cravings will return though.
i always want salads with a really vinegary vinaigrette. raw veggies, like you said as well. This year I'm eating carrots and celery with Annie's Goddess dressing (love the tahini/garlic combo), and vinegary salads. Though admittedly, today's wasn't exactly low in fats and oils (wilted spinach with bacon, gorgonzola, and egg). But it was good!!
