It's Christmas - Yeah I'm Gonna Eat! (Stacia Naquin)

For me, it's not even a question - I'm going to eat all my favorite Christmas treats! Why deny myself during the most wonderful time of the year?

 

Gingerbread men, pumpkin pie, Grandma’s famous Christmas cookies… some of my favorite treats only make an appearance once a year this time of year!!! And I’ve never stopped to ask my Grandma the fat gram content of her cookies. So I don’t plan to this year either!
Here’s my thought. It’s the holidays. And no matter what/why you celebrate… what’s the point of celebrating without some Christmas treats???
I remember being in high school and visiting a friend’s house around Christmas. There were lots of family members over. And everyone was having a wonderful time… except Aunt Sally* (*name has been changed to protect the Grinch-mas party). Aunt Sally was getting a jump-start on her New Year’s resolution to lose weight. So, instead of indulging in pie and cookies with the rest of us, she was “enjoying” raisins mixed into cool-whip. That’s right… raisins and cool-whip. For Christmas. Come on!! Like I said I was in high school. And I knew even THEN that holiday dieting was not going to be for me.
No fun!!!
So I’m doing my best to be good now. That way – when Grandma sends me my favorite Christmas cookies, I can eat every one of them!!! Hey – it’s Christmas! I’m going to enjoy ALL of it… from the lights, to the family… to the food.

Makes me hungry just thinking about it...
