We are quickly approaching the holiday season. A season filled with candy, sweets, pies, roasted turkeys, potatoes, and lots and lots of other carb heavy...I mean tasty foods.
I really love food. Sometimes a little too much. One thing that I have found that helps me stay on track is using a food journal. The food journal lets me see what I'm consuming in the day and gives me a visual on whether or not I'm eating too much. It helps me begin to look more at my portions, as well as the nutrients that I'm getting from what I eat.
We are a little over a week away from Thanksgiving...one of my all-time favorite holidays...because let's face it...I LOVE FOOD! But, over the years I've observed interactions between families--not just my own - I love my family!...but also from other families--and it is interesting to see how holidays, such as Thanksgiving, that should be bringing people together and filling homes and hearts with joy and fellowship...can be one of the biggest stresses on relationships in the existence of the world.
