Let me tell you how sick I am of hearing about Holiday Weight Gain..you know why you gain weight, because you look forward to eating in the holidays. What happened to those childhood wishes, the magic of Christmas that fills your hearts and not your tummies.
When have you heard kids in the school yard saying, omg I’m so excited for the holiday turkey I hear the stuffing is going to be divine.
Kids don’t look forward to food; instead they want to toboggan and open gifts. I say stop baking cookies for “santa” and feeding yourselves. Instead, bring the childhood magic alive, get out and play.
Toboggon-ners please Toboggan on a snowy hill. Injuries may be determental to major and special areas.
I might understand taking a SINGLE picture of a unique meal you made, or an elaborately decorated wedding meal (although I wouldn’t do it personally) or even the aftermath of a meal that made you terribly sick.
Has our society become so boastful that people have to compete on what we devour. Even if that were the case, this isn’t the 1830’s. People don’t consider fruit preservatives a luxury. And no, a picture of mashed potatoes and rice isn’t considered decadence.
Most of us in North America are fortunate enough to be able to try almost anything we wish. Even if that weren’t the case, why would make the effort to point that out to those that are less fortunate.
