Helping for holidays is easy

Many consider the holidays the most wonderful time of the year. Unfortunately, right here in our own backyard, other people are focused on where their next meal is coming from, how they’re going to be able to pay the heating bill or what they’re going to put under the tree for Christmas.

DeGrie, Elizabeth 2014.jpg

Chances are that the majority of us ate a few thousand too many calories over the past few days. With savory turkey and dressing and tables bulging with the weight of too many desserts, Thanksgiving is definitely a day on which many avoid counting calories.
For those of us who do put a lot of time — even on Thanksgiving — into considering how many calories we’ve consumed, life is about to get a whole lot easier. For the past several years — though more so in the past year — I’ve scoured my smartphone for calorie information before heading out to a restaurant.
