Its about balance . . . 
Our dietary habits during the holidays change, and in most cases, they don’t get better. We are tempted by the sweets, large quantities of turkey, and of course, wine. We have room in our diets to eat these things, but we also need to make it easy for ourselves to make healthy choices. Preparing salads (such as the recipe above) and leaving them in the fridge for a quick snack or healthy side to a meal is a great way to surround yourself with healthy food options.

For those individuals celebrating Christmas, I wish you and your loved ones a Merry Christmas and a holiday season filled with laughter and love.
