You?re welcome to choose your own ratio, of course, but I prefer part good food and part comfort food this time of year. Taking an extra few minutes to plan and prepare healthy food options is worth the effort and can be a surprisingly great motivator during the winter months. I don?t know if it?s the connection to the earth or the extra vitamins, but there?s something about a good winter salad that provides the extra edge it takes to brave the cold and keep on going. Plus, there?s nothing like enjoying a hot beverage and freshly baked cookies after all that effort!
