Where Local and Global Appetites Collide

I walk into my house and I smell an aroma coming from the kitchen. It is slowly creeping up my nose, and I begin to smell the freshly baked sugar cookies. I then continue walking and see the masterpieces. Not only do they look amazing, but they smell wonderful. I can not resist them….

Cookies! I love them! Who doesn’t? Cookies are tasty, come in almost any variety and can be made during the holidays with family and friends. But how do you control desserts during the holidays? This has seemed to be one of my problems during the holidays.

But I found a great solution that works for me. Everyone is different, but if you reward yourself while still eating healthy, it makes it a lot easier. I eat healthy as much as I can, and if I want a dessert every once in awhile, I eat one. Note, once in awhile does not mean every hour 🙂 but it is all up to us. Dieting is harsh and not many people can stick to it, but as my aunt would say, “just make healthy choices and try to balance your food.” I think that is a great idea, and especially with desserts, just eat them once in awhile. We all deserve the treat!

  1. I am proud of your self control at your young age. It has taken me years to fine-tune mine. I remember baking cookies at your age and eating 10 or more in a day. That can get you in trouble! Don’t go there.
