Allergic To The Holidays?
Most of us can’t resist getting into the holiday spirit as fast as we can. Who can blame us? By the time we’ve wolfed down our second helping of Thanksgiving turkey, our local retailers have their holiday lights blazing and jingly-jingles blasting. I must admit that this year, the second I heard the first few bars of Charlie Brown’s Christmas (Nov. 30th, 10:49 am), I was hauling an organic tree through our front door. Couple that with a serious case of matzah-ball mayhem in my kitchen (a personal fave soup), and my ranch has now become High Holiday House.
Food intolerances can ruin one’s festive spirit. Symptoms can include vomiting, bloating, cramps, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, colic, and other digestive disorders. If you know you have an intolerance, don’t eat the cookie! Have a glass of soy nog, instead.
