Page 22B-Malakoff News, Cedar Creek Pilot-December 3, 1951 Eating is traditional along with holidays Eating is a delightful and traditional way to celebrate holidays and s.pecial occasions. It is a shared experience, from the food preparation itself to the fancy silverware on the table. Good food can make a special occasion even more special. But many would-be dieters declare an "openseason" on eating with the fir- st bite of Thanksgiving Day turkey, notes the Texas Medical Association (TMA). The binge usually ends with a new Year's resolution to lose-the ten pounds gained during that month of sheer gluttony. Now is the time to reconsider this at- titude towards eating. First, think of the fat. Next, think of the guilt. All the time that you're stuffing your- self with rich, greasy, calorie-laden food, a small voice in the back of your mind will be nagging you about your sins (and about not fitting into last year's winter wardrobe). While that voice may not slow your pace, it will hamper your enjoyment. You may want to temporarily aban- don your diet at Thanksgiving. Well, 4th Anniversary Christmas Sale CHILDREN'S and INFANT OUTLET Pickle Patch N. Walker St. (2nd house on left) Eustace * 425-3311 you're forgiven, but remember that you'll have to pay the price later. Why not plan out your caloric tran- sgressions? If you know that you'll be eating a huge Thanksgiving dinner next week, cut down on your food intake this week. That way your calories will balance out. But for all of you with iron wills who are determined to look glamourous and slim at your Christmas Eve gathering, there is good news. It is possible not to waddle away from the Thanksgiving feast. Some foods typically included in the traditional dinner are relatively low in calories, while others, seemingly harmless, are caloric disasters. Green beans, for example, are very low in calories. Load up on them. And turkey itself, particularly the white meat, is fairly low. Even gravy isn't too bad. But watch out for the cranberry sauce, and the extra dollop of whipped cream on that extra slice of pie. Mixed drinks are caloric traps, so it may be wise to stick to win. If you think about what and bow much you're eating, you may even be able to walk away from the table without groaning and vowing, "Never again !" Selection and care help Christmas trees last longer COIIGE STATION -- Selecting your Christmas tree wisely and giving it proper care will help it last throughout the holiday season. First, consider the tree species, says Dr. Michael Walterscheidt, forestry specialist with the Texas Agricultural Extension Service, Texas A&M University System. Common species grown in Michigan, Minnesota and Oregon and sold in Texas include Scotch pine and Douglas fir. There are also some spruce, noble fir and concolor fir. All make ac- limited supplies are available in certam areas. More Virginia pines will be available within two to three years and will have an advantage of freshness over trees shipped in from other states. Recently, producers in southern states have started growing Virginia ........................... r ceptable Christmas trees.
