    Here’s my trick: maximize the quality level of your holiday eating.

    Eat the stuff that is delicious, AVOID the icky stuff.

    You know the “icky stuff” – it’s usually something prepared by a family member or friend brought in a tupperware container and is usually rainbow layered jello – or some sort of ginger/sweet potato concoction. You’re given the recipe for it when you didn’t ask, and you have to pretend to nibble on it while they’re watching.

    Snacking tip: If the holiday gathering is at someone else’s home, bring along zip-lock baggies and a coat with deep pockets. When you find something particularly tasty, load it up on your plate, then discretely excuse yourself to the bathroom where you unload the plate into the baggies, seal completely – then shove those in your coat’s pockets. REPEAT OFTEN (that’s that I plan to do at Melissa’s…)

    OH, and make sure, when you’re stealing food, to put the baggies in your OWN coat’s pocket. Usually as a guest you’re throwing your coat in a big pile on the bed. Wear a colorful coat so as to easily spot it among the others! Nothing’s worse than coming home to find your pockets are filled with stolen food from someone else!
