OK! Nothing healthy going on here!
So I am assuming you have all been good this year and in addition to having made it on to Santa’s “Nice” list you are also suffering from almost intolerable good health.
What better way to celebrate all that goodness than by flushing the whole lot down the toilet and getting completely shickered on Mulled Wine! Woohoo!
The real beauty of mulled wine is the name. Let’s face it, it’s wine but at Christmas we can pretend that it is somehow different because it is… well… mulled!
I don’t think there has ever been a time in human history where there has been so much angst generated on the subject of diet.
It seems that almost every day we are bombarded with some new study or some scientific breakthrough insisting that whatever it is we have been doing has been all wrong.
The problem with all this information is that it is, to use a technical term, pretty half baked at the best of times.
One of the big ones for the past few years has been the evil gluten which, if the stories are true, is out to kill us all!
As usual once the initial who-ha does down things don’t appear to be quite as dire as we were first led to believe.
Well its holiday time again and like many people it is that time of year when our stomachs are beginning to quiver with fear at the onslaught of delicious yet inherently fattening snacks and treats.

Sometimes when I am just going about my business reading various blogs and such I will come across some clown suggesting a food swap.
You know, the ones where they say food A is bad for you so you can substitute it for food B and it’s really good!
You look at it, think about it then conclude the person is either insane or has lost all use of their olfactory system.
Take a look at the list below for some seriously bad food substitute suggestions.
Those crazy Italians may have been on to something all along.
A recent study in England has shown that men who consume sufficient servings of tomatoes each week on a regular basis have dramatically less chance of falling victim to prostrate cancer.
Even more interesting is that substances contained in bread and pasta as well calcium in dairy added to the benefit.
So while it is early days in the research so far it seems that you can spaghetti bolognaise your way to good health… who knew!
As they often say, “If it is too good to be true… it probably is.” I am sure we would all like to just pay a few bucks to someone, go for a relaxing Spa treatment and find that we have lost weight (in all the right places) gotten rid of cellulite, reshaped our bodies or achieved whatever it was we wanted changed.
The truth is that there may very well be a whole bunch of reasons to go to a spa for a treatment it is more than likely you won’t get those kinds of things.
