We Indians are fun loving people, be it Diwali or Christmas We just look for a reason to celebrate and I love that about our community. Like most of us, I am all geared up in Christmas spirit.
"What would you like this Christmas?", I asked myself
"A small vacation and some attention, is all I ask", said my Body.
"Huh! What? Can you be more specific?", I asked.
My body smiled and said, "I have been good to you all year. I tried to digest all the weird foods that you provided, some I recognized and some totally alien to me (processed foods, artificial sweeteners, GMOs etc). Had a hard time every time you ate weird combinations of foods like milk and citrus fruits, hot and cold foods together, late night snacks, etc"
