- 5 Simple Holiday Eating Tips
An advertisement for a holiday eating nutrition seminar recently came across my Clif Bar desk. It read, “Holiday Eating Survival: Worried about holiday over eating? Dreading the physical exhaustion and food remorse that seems to flow from November to January?”
A few key words jumped off the page and bit me in the stomach: survival, worry, dread, exhaustion and finally, remorse. As an advocate for great tasting, healthy food that can be enjoyed and shared, I was disturbed to read that holiday eating could cause these feelings.
I wondered how prevalent it was to see the word “survival” associated with holiday eating; and so I asked the Google machine. It spat out 129,000 hits containing the language “Holiday Eat Survival.” When did holiday eating become something you must “survive”?
