Aunt Milly's awesome Cranberry Salad is a once a year treat. Have a spoonful of that and move on. Remember to track whatever you've eaten and enjoy the company. It's gonna be a fun meal!

It takes about 20 minutes for chemicals in your body to signal your brain when you're full. By eating 20 peanuts, 12 almonds, or 6 walnuts with a glass of water 20 minutes before a meal, you can naturally trigger the release of these chemicals. You'll end up eating less!!! This is an especially helpful tip during the Holidays and when going to a buffet.
