“It’s not that time of the year without….”
… the 4 F’s – “Family, Friends, Festivities and Food”
It’s really just not that time of the year without fun and frolic. With all the festivals paving in their way, the 4 F’s belongs to them, like the Garba with the Navratras, Rangoli with Diwali and Santa with Christmas!
And this is what makes it so very hard to stick to an eating plan … right! Now there I can see most of us making excuses. Because when we make preparations to make all the goodies and the festive food, we all know how nice they taste … Then once we get into the process of making the same the whole house smells of the divine food. And when the food is ready and you have a look at it you can vouch for how delicious it is …
Then the goodies are put away to be served at the right moment, and yes they still smell scrumptious … Some of us cannot even wait to taste or dig into the goodies. Yes, they look good, smell good and also taste divine!
This is the exact time when temptation actually tests you … just one bite, one goodie. Okay two, on the count of three – the extra workout starts ticking at the back of the mind … And finally, get lost in the temptation of the delicious food. Yes, literally lost!
So yes it’s not that time of the year when you can say no to festivals
It’s not that time of the year without family
It’s not that time of the year without friends
And definitely it’s not that time of the year without great tempting food
Here’s wishing all of you a festive time with your family, friends and great food! Do let me know what is it that you cannot do without on festivals. Would love to know your thoughts!
