Day 116- Nutrition Bite

Here are some healthy wedding foods posted on other blogs--a vegetarian couple created this menu with their caterer: Organic Creole Polenta, Israeli Couscous With Mission Fig and Caramelized Pear, Vegetable Étoufée, and Sautéed Oyster Mushrooms, etc. All these menu items and more are made available for each person to mix and match to his or her liking and will be beautifully served by a chef on a small plate. Another wedding at a local nature preserve served veggie sushi, a variety of salads, many middle eastern entres, African breads and other ethnic yummies. So much food was left over that the local homeless shelters received the best food they had eaten in months.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
My sister was married recently. The only healthy food selection was a fruit tray. You would think with a sugar shun sister that there would have been a healthy food selection. Instead, the food choices were key lime pie, cheese cake, candy, cream puffs, eclairs, chicken croissants, etc.. Maybe I am complaining because the temptation was too much. I did taste the key lime pie and the wedding cake (picture posted on blog) everybody was raving about. However, I thought the cake was too sweet with pure sugar, but I did like the creamy texture and flavor of the key lime pie. Well, my sister's wedding was a great day!!

Sugar Preacher,
After Hilary's wedding, I gained 3 pounds from eating all the leftover food--wedding cake, cheesecake, candy and nuts. Once you start consuming sugar and sweets, your body craves more. Sugar addiction is really a problem for me!
