Happy, Healthy Holidays!

December 13, 2018


In this lovely holiday season, we celebrate with our family and friends the gifts and the traditions which mean so much to us. An important part of holidays is the festive food and drink. It wouldn’t be Christmas without hot chocolate, frosted cookies, roasted meats, and pies. As we enjoy these delicacies moderately, they add joy to our celebration. The trick is to keep these appealing treats as accents and not the norm. But Christmas foods taste so darn good, and they appear in such profusion and in such copious amounts, that it takes discipline to eat moderately. Have fun this holiday season! Eat moderately and enjoy all you eat and drink! – Greg Bell, Get Healthy Utah Chair
