My favourite Christmas food is my granny’s slow cooked juicy scottish cut of beef silverside, my dads herb-marinated meaty Iranian stuffed vine leaves (I know not very Christmassy) and my mums coffee enriched tiramisu!
Having lost over 5 stones since January you have inspired me so much this year nic and have been a constant support; ensuring I can continue my passion of cooking / baking but in a healthy way. If I was here for Christmas your recipes would have been made in abundance. For Christmas Eve a warm slice of your healthy banana bread with a spiced latte enjoyed after Christingle Service. For Christmas Day pre-church a scrummy bowl of overnight oats, crunchy homemade granola, quinoa porridge or 2 ingredient pancakes – served with your recommended greek yoghurt, fruits and peanut butter with a dash of cinammon and chia seed sprinkling. And for the main event one of your nutritious soups for starter, followed by silverside and vine leaves with ALL of the trimmings (cooked in 1 kcal spray of course). Finished off with your fab desserts and snacks that I’ve been accustomed to trying with your Sunday reminders such as carrot cake muffins and 3 ingredient cookies to name a few (in my Santa requested silicone baking equipment like yours)! And not forgetting Boxing Day leftovers – mixing it all together to create one of your meatloaf muffins!
Alas this year is all change. With the passing of my granny my sister and I decided to embark on a tour of Thailand for Christmas / New Year. So we will be enjoying the aromas and flavours of a very non-traditional Christmas in various Thailand locations! Of course there’ll be treats along our journey commencing on our flight via India (although I wonder if the food will be as healthy as your recent upload of your friend receiving some very nutritious inflight snacks?!), but as your motto says – everything in moderation – and enjoying ANY food with my family in the warmth of the festive (Thai) cheer is always my favourite type!
Thankyou for an inspirational 2013 nic; here’s to bringing back some inspiration from the array of food markets and restaurants I’ll be sure to experience across the ocean into your much anticipated recipes of 2014!
Congratulations on your Nic’s Nutrition blog! Oh – Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (for when they come)!
awh, what a lovely message to read – thank you so so much 😀 xxx
My Favourite Christmas food is the prawns (barbecued). YUM! They go so well with the hot Australian day on Christmas 🙂
Baked camembert is always a winner! We ones to be shared between the couples in the family so aswell as being ridiculously tasty it has that aspect of Christmas togetherness! Perfect!
I love Christmas, its my favourite time of year! Probably Christmas Dinner as I love a good roast and seem to only have turkey on Christmas Day (other than the left overs!) The best thing is sitting at the table with all my favourite people and celebrating together! Merry Christmas all and a Happy New Year!
All the little treats to nibble on! The yogurt/chocolate coated nuts, the nuts you have to crack open yourself, and we always have huge plates of dried figs and cranberries. They’re the best 🙂 happy Christmas!

Merry Christmas to you and best wishes for 2014! xxx
Love fruit mince pies yum yum hope u have a fab Chrissy x
Mine favourite is Christmas pudding, can’t beat it! 🙂
hm, I am not really a festive and holiday loving person, also Latvian traditional Christmas foods don’t really appeal to me (hope I don’t sound snobbish), thus I would say that my favorite food, no, drink is tea – self picked forest strawberry and raspberry, different herbal ones, ginger etc. Tea makes me feel warm and I can snuggle with a cup of tea in bed and watch some series…
My favourite food at Christmas is my mum’s Christmas pudding with double cream. Nothing unusual, I just love all the mixed dried fruits, spices and overall combination of flavours, Christmas in a bowl 😛
The whole Christmas dinner 🙂

Gluten free oat meal turtle bites! Healthy, quick and christmassy once you add in some crandberries and cinnamon!
My favorite thing to eat at Christmas time is sugar cookies with icing!! I could eat a whole batch they are soooo good!
My favourite is Turkey, i consider myself lucky to adore it, as many dislike the meat and its so good for you. However I would have said chocolate but one cannot restrict this favouritism to Christmas alone…
My favourite food to eat is a couple of slices of gammon topped with 2-3 pineapple rings.
Great giveaway Nic and congratulations on reaching 10,000 followers! Happy Christmas! Xx
Thank you Colleen! Good luck 🙂 xx

Favourite Christmas dish for me has to be strawberry trifle ;D never eat it the rest of the year. It’s got to have sponge fingers in the jelly too, not just plain. Thanks
I usually look forward the the amount of loaded desserts BUT this year the only thing that would hit the spot were the vegetables! The roasted carrots and parsnips, the mushy peas, even the Brussels sprouts!!
I have to say Boxing Day is my favourite for food with the left over cold meat jacket potatoes and salad for dinner yum!

I know its simple, but roast potatoes really are my favourite part of Christmas. I am an absolute potato addict and really have to restrain myself when trying to be good, so I let myself gorge on them a little on Christmas and Boxing day… I may of also brought a couple of leftovers home 😉
Prawn cocktail, stuffing & pigs in blankets – fave Xmas food

Amazing giveaway, someone is going to be very lucky – and all the runner ups too! Hope the prizes get put to good use.
Good luck everyone <3
I’m going to be honest here… I love it everything at Christmas! Champagne and eggs on Christmas morning (why can’t we do that everyday…?. Waiting for the big roast and trying to fight off the array of chocolates and bread sauce calling your name. Pretending to like dad’s boxing day turk- curry (with too much curry paste in it). I love inventing new ways to makeover the Brussel sprouts… Everyone always awaits my new concoction in great anticipation (not!). This years I roasted them with pancetta and pomegranate, they were a hit. Out roast got burnt because our oven went nuts.. The sprouts and turkey were the only survivors, so that was hilarious. Would love this happy so much, to start the year off right!
Hey Nic, great giveaway! My fave Christmas food has to be pigs in blankets, drool. Or I love a good bagel with some salmon and cream cheese for breakfast! xx

At this time of year my favourite food is a homemade clootie dumpling. As long as it is made by my Mum using a recipe passed down from my Dad’s side of the family. So GOOD. Amazing on its own or topped with roasted pecans and served with ice cream or cream, for extra indulgence.
Wow, what a competition! Hope you had a merry christmas 🙂 this year was a different christmas for me. After being a vegetarian for 12 years, this year was my 1st returning to meat! So this christmas my favourite food was….pigs in blankets!! 😀 but for every other christmas I’d spent as a veggie I’d say anything apple and cinnamon flavoured!! Just so festive!! 😀 happy new year Nic xx

Most people hate brussel sprouts but I love them! Either roasted with a bit of garlic and rosemary, or stir fried with chillies and some ginger. Not traditional but super yummy and healthy!! 🙂
Definitely smoked salmon canapés!
Roast turkey! Even better cold with salad, cranberry sauce and stuffing! Either that or the not so healthy Baileys yule log I made this year!
Definitely some smoked salmon with lots of fresh lemon juice! Bread optional! Nice additions are watercress and light soft cheese! Yum!
Really love taramasalata with some chopped up veg like carrots or cucumber, naughty but nice, good fats!
