|...sure, it looks innocent enough!|
So this Christmas, with the theme of eating whole foods, I decided to bake instead of buy. At least with baking you know that it is real butter and sugar...right?...(at least that is what I told myself as I loaded the shopping cart with chocolate chips and cream). So this weekend, I set out to bake sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, fudge, and caramels (with a little help from a few tweens I know). I learned that if you melt chocolate & peanut butter chips with sweetened condensed milk you end up with love in a pot. I also learned that when you blend butter with sugar and flour (basically) and cover it in caramel icing with sprinkles, the clouds part, the birds sing, and there is peace in the world...at least in my world. I had no idea what could be created in a kitchen.

I see now. Make it stop!

THAT is what Real Life Health is all about.....knowing how to get back to it, when you "fall off your wagon". Because, as humans, we will all fall off our wagon at some point.
That's all I got. Happy Monday before Christmas.
