Pick Your ‘Worth It’ Treats
[Enjoy Guilt-Free Holidays – Part 1/5]
1. FREE FOOD
Just because it’s there, doesn’t mean you have to eat it.
I know what you’re thinking ‘But Amy, that is way easier said than done!’
Yes – I know.
But sometimes you don’t feel like chocolate, yet you eat it. Sometimes you take a bite of something, realize it’s not as good as you thought, and still eat it.
What if we only eat the ‘wow foods’ this Holiday season?
My mom bought me some chocolate covered almonds last week. As I tasted one, I decided they were not worth it for me. I decided to not eat the rest of the bag. I just told her ‘I don’t like them so much’. This almost sounds like an insult – but you know what? I didn’t hurt her feelings. I just stated a fact.
Newsflash: You don’t have to eat something just because someone expects you to.
2. UNWRITTEN FOOD RULES
We have certain unwritten rules in our society, like eating food because someone offered it to you. Or because it’s free.
When that happens. remember: you don’t have to eat it. You can choose your own ‘worth it’ treats.
For me personally: I LOVE wine. But when I order wine, I make sure I order wine that’s truly great. Why drink crappy wine when I could be drinking great wine?
The same with pie. Don’t just eat some random pie. Eat the best damn pie from the best baker in the area. A pie that makes you moan with pleasure when you take your first bite.
