USA Today’s Craig Wilson says you ought to tell the food police with their “don’t eat this, don’t eat that” message to take a hike this holiday season. “Is your favorite childhood memory of Christmas a carrot stick? I didn’t think so. Isn’t mine, either. A carrot was something you left for Rudolph,” Wilson exclaims. As for pie, “Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or, if you don’t like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?”
