     Food, ah the focus of the holidays it seems. I can't get away from all the pumpkin, spiced, roasted, mashed, baked deliciousness if I tried. And to be honest, I really don't try. It's the one time of year I feel hungry, through the heat of the summer I'm often content to eat small, light meals and drink lots of water. It's just too dang hot to expend a lot of energy cooking or chomping. Once the cold hits, I love to make warm, comforting food, spending time preparing and cooking and thoroughly enjoy the social and tasty aspect of the holiday food scene. This year I started a new path in my life, going back to school to become a registered dietitian. More on that in another post. This week in my nutrition class we learned about phytochemicals and their benefits, so I challenged myself to make my meals filled with the color of the rainbow. This vegetable, hummus and cheese sandwich was one of my successes and made for a pretty photo, double win! Hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving!
