After the glitter of Christmas dissipates and the presents have been ripped apart, there is only one thing left to do — eat. Gift giving can work up quite the appetite, so start your holiday off right with delicious treats to tide you over until dinner is served.muffins with whole grains and oats, egg casseroles that can be assembled the night before, or pancakes that can be prepped and quickly mixed in the morning.
If you are anticipating the later feast, stick with lighter options like a winter fruit salad, fresh grapefruit, or a smoothie. On the other hand, this is a celebration, so if you find yourself fighting the urge to serve a decadent Christmas breakfast, you can always stick to smaller portions so your stomach isn’t stuffed when dinnertime rolls around.
