New Year's Tweaks

No, it's not a mistake. I purposely waited till the 3rd week of January
because you have probably been inundated with New Year's emails and
newsletters, suggesting that it's "that time again, for a resolution."
I decided to wait until all the nutrition and fitness hoopla, yes
hoopla, is over, in order to suggest that you simply make some healthier
decisions. If you really want to change your health destiny, you don't
need to make a single and overwhelming resolution. Just commit to
being more aware of portion sizes, how often you are eating, whether you
are hungry for food (or something else) and whether you are engaged
with fitness daily, yes daily. My January recipe
is from Post cereals and it's a treat you can prepare for your family
or guests. Simple ingredients - 3 to be exact - and you will look like a
dessert chef superstar!!
Wash about 20 large strawberries and set aside
Take a cup of Honey Bunches of Oats and crush
Melt 6 ounces of dark chocolate, already chopped, in a double boiler, stirring till smooth
dip the strawberries in the chocolate first, lifting and twisting to
allow excess chocolate to fall back in the bowl. Place on parchment
paper. Sprinkle some of the crushed cereal on the dipped strawberries.
Allow about 30 minutes for the chocolate coating to harden.
Yum!!Remember that a "treat' is an occasional, pleasurable experience.
