Sweet Little Treat

 “Good things come in small packages”

Who says big taste doesn't come in a little bite?

Treating yourself shouldn't mean overindulging. Especially this time of year. We hold so many memories around the holidays. Emotions are tied to food and those are the foods that you might have once gobbled down without even thinking.

You can still enjoy a treat that satisfies you in more than one way. A delight that is made of ingredients that your ancestors would recognize and doesn't swing your blood sugar into the new year would be a treat indeed!

Take a peak at the article as well! Key points:
  • you don't have to throw all caution to the wind/ultimately it's your choice, 
  • you don't have to survive the holidays/you can enjoy them, and 
  • you don't have to dry out and bloat up...stay hydrated/we often mistake hunger for thirst.
