Happy Valentine’s Day! 💕 I hear from people a lot that they don’t want chocolate on Valentine’s day even if they love chocolate because they don’t feel they’re capable of keeping a box of chocolate in the house without bingeing on it. This may be true for people […]
Hanukkah has passed and it’s almost Christmas which means you’ve most likely already encountered holiday cookies. If you’re lucky, you’ve been somewhere there’s an assortment of cookies. You may be wondering which cookies are “best” to eat.

I was in a yoga class the other day and the instructor wished everyone a happy upcoming Thanksgiving and she cautioned us all to “be careful” about our food choices. Um…. what?! Be careful? Be careful about what? We could assume she meant be careful you don’t eat “too much” or eat “bad foods”, but I like this new list of the only things you need to be careful about when eating on Thanksgiving. Be careful your food isn’t held at improper temperatures, be careful the food you’re eating is free of your allergens, and be careful you’re not eating according to diet rules.
As American Thanksgiving approaches, you’re probably seeing articles telling you which foods to avoid and which are lower calorie and therefore the “better” choice. These traditional “eat this”, “not that” posts completely negate a person’s personal preferences, hunger, and satisfaction levels.
