    It is very important to keep your File of Life on your refrigerator. The paramedics always look there when responding to an emergency.

    Please take the time to look at your File of Life and see if it

    needs updated or if you don't have one, please see me. Luz:)

  •  Plan ahead. Before you go to the mall, slip a cheese stick and carrot sticks, or another low- fat snack, into your purse (or bag) to fight off temptations in the food court.

     Don’t skip meals. “Saving up” calories will lead to feeling starving when you most need to stick to your plan and apply self-control. Instead, stick to eating healthful, balanced meals and snacks with fiber, vegetables, healthy fats, and protein so that you can make wise decisions about holiday treats when the time comes.

     Never go to a party hungry. Take the edge off your hunger by eating a healthy snack such as apple slices, yogurt or vegetable soup.

     Drink plenty of water. And drink a glass before the party to help fill you up.

     Bring your own guilt-free dish to a party so you know there’s at least one you can splurge on.

     Use a small plate so it looks full.

     Remember, you can eat whatever you’d like, as long as it’s in moderation.

     Don’t drink your calories. Consume alcohol in moderation, if at all.

     Don’t hang out by the buffet table. Chatting beside it will only tempt you to graze.

     If you want dessert, eat fewer calories during dinner and eat only the desserts you really want.

     Before going back for seconds, wait 20 minutes for your food to “settle.” You might feel full and lose interest in more munching.

     Watch the stress. The holidays, while a great time to get together and celebrate with family and friends, can also lead to extra stress related to traveling, finances and family dynamics. Incorporate daily stress relievers through exercise, meditation, and avoiding waiting until the last minute to buy gifts and make other preparations for the holidays.

  • ***RECIPE*** Pumpkin Cupcakes With Cream Cheese Frosting ***RECIPE*** 1 18.5-ounce box yellow cake mix (plus the ingredients called for in the package directions)

    1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice 1 15-ounce can pumpkin puree

    2 8-ounce bars cream cheese, at room temperature 2 cups confectioners’ sugar

    Heat oven to 350° F. Line two 12-cup muffin tins with paper liners. Prepare the cake mix as directed but with the following change:

    Add the pumpkin pie spice and substitute the can of pumpkin puree for the water called for in the package directions.

    Divide the batter among the prepared muffin tins and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of a cupcake comes out clean, 18 to 22 minutes. Let cool.

    Meanwhile, using an electric mixer, beat the cream cheese and sugar until creamy. Spread on the cupcakes. Top with candy if desired.
