Cakes, Cookies, Turkey, Ham, Stuffing, Oh My!

During this time of year the majority of people travel to family gatherings to spend time with one another.  But, that also, typically, means a lot of food - cakes, cookies, pies, noodles, stuffing, ham, turkey, rolls, homemade mac-n-cheese, eggnog, wine, beer, and so much more.  Are you ready?  Will you stuff yourself to the point of discomfort or will you be able to simply enjoy your favorites in small portions?

Mmmm, but some of those colorful treats are really hard to resist.  This can be really challenging for those of you who need to pay close attention to what you eat for health reasons.  And, then of course, there are those of us who are either vegetarian or vegan and eating at other people's homes can be an even bigger challenge.  Is there milk, eggs or cheese in that?  Or you might get the eye roll as other family members don't understand why you won't eat the turkey, ham, leg of lamb or what not.  

Maybe it isn't at a family gathering, but all the goodies that your co-workers/employees bring in to the office.  Seriously, it is no wonder that people gain weight around the holidays.  It is far too easy to just say, "It will be okay … I will work it off come January."  Though a lot of people never actually do the extra work out needed to ditch the added holiday pounds.  

AND…if you eat like crazy and eat a bunch of sugary sweets, your sex life may take a nose dive for at least a few days.  What you eat absolutely has an impact on your sex drive as well as how you feel overall - physically and emotionally.  So….maybe you should opt to eat good and feel good!
