Surviving the Holidays

Well, they are definitely upon us everyone!

While I don't have any "last minute shopping tips", or "how to survive Christmas with the in-laws" tips, I did find a great little list of well thought out tips on how to stay as healthy as you can be during this holiday season.

These tips come courtesy of Nikki Young, author of two great little e-cookbooks on Primal Eating. Please support her wonderful efforts with these books and check out the site I've linked to above.

Anyway, on with the tips!
