Nutrition and the Holidays
I am sitting at JFK, between flights, and trying to get a leg up on tomorrow's blog.

I think I am choosing this topic this evening as food is always a primary part of my trips. I travel to eat or something like that. I am hoping/assuming that Egyptian food is similar to food in other countries in the MidEast, will have to let you know. I still dream about a buffet breakfast in Jordan several years ago....
Nutrition is always a topic of interest, and, even before breast cancer entered our lives, the holidays were a danger zone of temptation. Here is a link to an excellent article from BreastCancer.org:
