Though I haven’t been perfect this holiday season, I’ve done pretty well over all. I have managed to ignore the sugary treats that keep popping up invitingly in the office kitchen. My resilience was really tested during the office holiday party when the tray of home-made chocolate dipped cookies and peppermint bark was passed around the table a total of four times!
Three keys to getting through situations like these are:
- Understanding family, friends and co-workers.
- A perspective on long term goals, like healing and recovering from extreme sensitivities.
- Keeping in mind that, while you may not be able to take a cookie from the tray, you can look forward to having a safe treat when you get home.
On that note: Fudgy Toasted Pecan Bark!
