    What a giveaway!

    Favourite to eat over the Christmas period? I think it has to be…

    My Christmassy fruit compote!
    I stew (till soft) blackberries, plums, strawberries, pears & apples in some orange juice. Then I spice it with a ground nutmeg, cinnamon & cloves mix, and sweeten (to taste) with agave nectar or brown sugar. I store it in the fridge & eat it on oatcakes, in porridge, in Greek yogurt , or even on vanilla ice cream (if I’m being naughty). Can be eaten hot or left to cool.

    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)!

Christmas Eve Salmon koulibac; On the day Smoked Salmon, or fried almonds or pan fried livers in balsamic; but maybe the freshness of the crispy shredded salad with leftovers on Boxing Day. raw sprouts, fennel, celeriac, carrot, spring onion, cucumber… The end of naughtiness.

  295. December 20, 2013 / 11:43 am

    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…

  296. December 20, 2013 / 1:27 pm

    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 😛

    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!

    Hi Nic, love your blog and recipes, this is a fab giveaway! I think my favourite Christmas food is roast sweet potato- but as that is not of my faves all year round I’m going to say warm mince pies with either Greek yoghurt or cream depending how I’m feeling!

    My guilty secret of my favourite Christmas food is Mint Matchmakers. I’m not sure why I love them so much but they make me feel Christmassy and remind me of being at home with family! I can’t get enough of them over Christmas… yum!

    Although this isn’t particularly healthy I don’t eat it any other time of the year, so when I get home from uni for the Christmas holidays to see cheese & crackers I’m absolutely made!
    Some pickles on the side never hurt anyone :p

    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!! 🙂
