Healthy Holidays

It happens so quickly… I was in the grocery store this weekend; my mind was full of healthy holiday intentions. Then it happened. I saw the peppermint bark cheesecake. I smelled the bakery… I rounded the aisle and found myself faced with the special holiday cheeses, spreads, and crackers. It was cruel. I took a deep breath and steered my cart toward dairy….the eggnog popped up from out of nowhere, along with the tasty coffee creamers, and on and on… the entire shopping trip was a challenge!!!
