Don’t Worry, Be Happy: Eat What You Love This Holiday

Cracked Pomegranate and Cherries

I recently blogged about the perils of listening to all the holiday eating advice that we’re bombarded with these days.  So what do I do but write some more of it!  But this has a bit of a different ring to it, as you can tell by the title of this post.

Click on over to our FitBriefings (short articles we write each month on topics we think might be helpful), to read our article on mindful holiday eating, complete with four tips to help you embrace the wonderful food of the holiday (and year round) by eating what you love in a way that makes you feel great.

What are some of your holiday food favorites?  I must say peppermint dark chocolate bark is near the top of my list.  I also love whole nuts — it wouldn’t be the holidays without a bowl of those on my kitchen counter.  Then there are pomegranates.  They are so worth the work!

  1. I love all of our Swedish special dishes: limpa (Swedish rye bread with orange rind), Fruit Soup, pepparkakor (ginger cookies), bondost (cheese), potatos korf (potato sausage), Kroppkaka (potato dumplings), & ostkaka (not really translate-able!)

    I was given some pepparkakor a few years ago. Wonderful! And while bacon cheeseburgers aren’t high on my holiday food list, afpit, I do love me some at other times of the year. Made with grass-fed beef, of course. 🙂

    I love the way you say it, eat what you love in a way you feel good about it. I feel when we follow dietary advices we cut on what we love and we shouldn’t, we just have to be smart about it. Thanks!
