The Blog Diet Understands – After Holiday Hangover

If you were in the United States last Friday (Thursday night too) through Sunday you were probably made aware that July 4th is a holiday.  If all the flag waving and fireworks and parades and people mindlessly patriotically chanting “U.S.A., U.S.A., U.S.A.!” didn’t clue you in, it was Independence Day. Despite the economy being in the suck and our reputation abroad being pretty much in the same place the United States is a pretty great place to be.

It’s a real great place to be during a national holiday  since you get to have the day off from work and get to hang out with your family and friends.  You also get to eat and drink, a lot, if you are so inclined.

I am so inclined.

The Blog Diet understands.  You don’t want to be miserable during a holiday and The Blog Diet doesn’t want you to be either.  It’s OK if you ate some hot dogs and hamburgers or something decadently tasty because it was fried and then fried some more.

But “cometh the Monday after a holiday, cometh the holiday hangover.*” You feel a little bloated.  Maybe averse to bright light or talking or people in general.  It’s okay.

But get over it.  Stiff upper lip and all that.  Enter Tuesday with a vengeance.  Cause now you’re back to grass fed beef, veggies, and other healthy treats.  And exercise.  Don’t skip it today.  Get back on your routine.

OK.  That is all.

Hope your holiday was fun.

After A Good Meal: Underberg

To Feel Bright & Alert

“Since 1846 Europeans have known Underberg as a remarkably satisfying way to conclude a meal.”  Well, it’s been only a few months since Jermoir Saucier discovered what those smarty-pants Europeans have known for 162 years.  Those closed lipped Europeans and their wonderful digestifs!

Anyway, part of The Blog Diet™ is that you’re actually not supposed to mind following some of the tips.  Case in point: Underberg.  Yes, it tastes like liquefied Ricola but it really does give your stomach a nice warm fuzzy feeling.

It’s also 88 proof!  So you get to drink and it’s good for you!  Doesn’t get much better than that.
