I personally like to prepare meatless meals on Wednesdays and Fridays for the duration of the Great Lent, as well the whole Holy Week, which is the week before Easter Sunday.
It actually is healthy to give our system a break from the weekly meat consumption, and introduce some vegetarian or seafood dishes instead.
This mid-December wedding had a Christmas theme, and it took place in Germany (Bavaria…to be exact), with breathtaking scenery of snow covered hills and tree tops.
The Bride incorporated her Ukrainian traditions into the wedding ceremony and reception, and the Groom complimented it with his German wedding traditions.
We are into the first week of Phase II, so additional foods are being introduced back into our daily menu.
If you have been following my blog, you already know that I am very impressed with The Fat Smash Diet, and love following all the phases at least once every year, with very rewarding results.
Some people think it is too harsh (no coffee or alcohol for 9 days…wow…), but it is perfect for my taste and my lifestyle.
MERRY CHRISTMAS to all our family and friends who are celebrating Christmas Eve on January 6th, per Julian calendar.
