For me, the festive season is pretty plain sailing – maybe thanks to an aversion to baked goods that involve “humiliated grapes” (mince pies, fruit cake, steamed pudding). And the seasonal thing down here that I would willingly consume by the ton, and is supposed to have a GI of over 70 – watermelon – has thankfully never caused my BGs to spike accordingly. The main threat on Christmas day itself is Mother’s mammary trifle (containing the pointy, sawed-off tops of chocolate cakes baked in the preceding months)…last year she flamboyantly added maraschino cherries: those hyperglycaemia-inducing balls are now forbidden fruits – tip: keep your trifle same-sex (while ignoring the sexual implications of “nuts”) ;)
