Avoiding un-special holiday food

That special season is upon us — the time when we’re cocooning a bit for the winter and at the same time getting ready for lots of social times with family and friends.

It’s also the time when we’re marketed to by a succession of foods that scream out, Here, you have to Buy Us, it’s Time to East Us.

But, hey.  If you don’t normally like or desire something, you don’t need to get it just to be seasonally festive.

Does your family have special foods that are part of the celebration?  Sure, you probably do.  Go after those in moderation at this special time.  But these special things that aren’t so special to you personally — you can leave those out without diminishing your holiday in any way.
