I’d like to wish everyone a happy holiday of their choice. I was going to post one of those holiday survival lists - but while reading and participating in the holiday giveaway over at Diabetes Mine, I think the thing that struck me the most was - Don’t stress so much about it!
The holidays aren’t a license to eat everything we want but diabetes isn’t a punishment that doesn’t allow us to ever eat something off plan. My best plan (you know, were I eating solid foods) would be to eat a little of my favorite foods, try not to go overboard and to enjoy myself with friends and family. It’s far too easy to turn what is supposed to be fun into a guilt producing, stress filled crisis - whether or not you eat off plan.
