    Christmas is my absolute favorite time of the year. But, being surrounded by mountains of chocolates, pastries and other various treats is raking havoc on my attempts at eating healthy. I know many will say that I should have enough will power to not let these temptations dither me; but, I don’t. The problem is (& I’ve made numerous posts about this) that I have no self control whatsoever when it comes to eating junk. I never buy junk food, but invariably, it finds its way to me. After I binge, I’m just full of self loathing. I don't know if I can take a month of this. How do all of you deal with being tempted by the holiday treats?

    Brilliant words of advice from the great Julia Child:

    "All things in moderation, including moderation."
    And, whenever she made especially rich dishes, she always said that there was nothing wrong with treating yourself to that stuff, once in awhile, but, not all the time.

    In other words, enjoy those holiday treats !
