Celebrating and enjoying food is one of life’s great pleasures. In the current culture, many fear food and eating. Food fears can start a vicious cycle of restricting and overeating. Eating healthy food, in the right portions makes you feel amazing!
Enjoy good meals and the occasional celebration. If you love that Thanksgiving Pecan Pie, birthday cake, or weekly steak, then go ahead and indulge. Find that happy balance between savoring our lives and acting in a manner that saves them for the longest possible time. In the Blue Zones those two forces harmonize.
Celebrate and enjoy food
- Pick a celebratory day each week to splurge on a meal with your favorite foods.
- Indulge on holidays and at family celebrations. Just find a balance that works for you.

I love to indulge in a one fine piece of chocolate after a satisfying, healthy meal!
