Happy Holidays: Eating Tips To Ignore

25 Nov


The holidays are upon us… actually, they are in our face.

Holiday Advice Food Humor

There is a ton of advice out there on how not to overeat on Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hannukah, Kwanza, New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day, and every other holiday you can imagine.

Tips like, “NO seconds,” “Drink ONLY water,” “During your meal, go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and guilt yourself about how many calories you’re taking in,” “Fill up on celery and radishes – stay away from the dip,” and “Do planks and push-ups between courses.”

Pull-ease! Gratification is the whole point.

If you’re not indulging in special, rich foods during the holidays —

then you’re just not doing it right.

After all, why eat “clean” on holidays when you can really enjoy yourself getting “down and dirty?”

Relax. Almost everyone will be eating healthy, dieting, and eating “clean” come January.

Cheese Is Addictive – Who Knew?

Admittedly, I never met a brie, blue, or Asiago I didn’t adore.

From The L.A. Times by Jenn Harris “Cheese Really Is Crack – Study Reveals Cheese Is As Addictive As Drugs”

Halloween Has Gone to the Dogs

18 Oct


Before the charcoal on the Labor Day barbecue grill cools, we are bombarded by… ARRGH!


Orange and black invade the retail world. Pumpkins, creepy decorations, and feed bags of over-priced CANDY block the aisles of every store – including the pet store.
