With mom and dad planning to head to Arizona soon with the “snowbirds”, we are thankful for the special rationing of Christmas fruit cake and that special blend of nuts and bolts that is just simply incomparable. What’s your favorite treat of the season?

Today’s post through a thought generated by Neil Pasricha’s “Book of (Holiday) Awesome” reminds us of the careful attention we need to pay to the next month and our diets.

The holiday season just seems to bring a lot of extra “eats” into play. Cookies, Chocolates, nuts and bolts (thanks mom), candy canes, Swiss Chalet Festive Special, short bread, rum balls, Christmas fruit cake, Christmas pudding all seem to make their way to our dining room or coffee tables.

We can resist, oh yes we can. We can also enjoy a small indulgence here or there (or not). Although it might seem somewhat artificial in sweetening up the season. It can be truly awesome.

Watch that sugar intake. Happy Holidays !
