How did you celebrate New Year’s Eve?  I went out with friends and had a wonderful time.  You know my protocol for bars usually includes drinking water or diet coke.  This time, I made the decision to celebrate New Year’s Eve with a champagne toast.


Part of this decision came from peer pressure — the drink was given to me.  Another part of this decision came from a phrase my dietitian used in an email once.  “It’s about being in charge, not about being in control.”  I decided to have champagne to celebrate.

From a nutrition standpoint, alcohol is a form of empty calories.  This champagne was around 80 calories, and it provides no nutritive value to the body.  As a food choice, it was a terrible decision.  Overall, I think it was the right decision.

What choices did you make this holiday season?
