Guys, before you hit the malls and other shopping venues, make sure you have a satisfying protein meal like eggs, or fish. Guys, it’s the Christmas season, you know the lines are going to be long. A parking spot is another challenge to overcome. And, if and when the hungry pangs come calling your patience also goes out the door, quicker than the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt.

Those yuletide songs will drive you crazy if your stomach is also doing its own thing. Be prepared! Take along a few healthy snacks that will provide energy and endurance for you and your loved ones. Energy bars are great. Grab a ziplock baggie and pack a few nuts, dried fruits, apples, etc. They make a world of difference. You’ll be  ‘jingling belling’ all the way with smiles on your face.

I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food. Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds. I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones. I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food. Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
