The pleasures of food
are part of a full & happy life.
So here it is, another American holiday coming up, the 4th of July.
And like most celebrations,
friends & families share food together.
Unfortunately, guilt and stress over
what to eat, what to avoid,
losing control or “going off the diet”
can ruin what could otherwise be a fun time.
Coleslaw and Potato Salad with Mayonnaise.
Big Fat Juicy Cheeseburgers. Fried Chicken.
Kids running around in the sprinklers
(or fire hydrants).
The smell of neighbors having a cookout.
Light until 9pm.
Kisses in the moonlight.
Perhaps this holiday you can practice
balancing the pleasures of the day,
with the pleasures of the food,
and leave the anxiety & guilt out of the party!

no matter what occasion it is.
(PS: it’s not really a diet at all!)
Life is no picnic if you never allow yourself to enjoy one!
