Welcome back to Scrap What You Eat! The challenge for the food photographer in all of us! The focus is on the FOOD! (and drink!)
Here are the rules:

-No sign up, just join.
-Players can enter up to three LOs through January 31, 2013, midnight CST.
-Layouts can be any size, paper or digital
-Layouts must be new to the SB.com as of (date)
-Public embedding must be enabled. If you don’t know how, please PM me.

At the end of the month, I will ask for your top 3 votes and then run a poll to choose the winner!

This month’s twist:
Keepin’ it healthy! With all the calories and carbs consumed over the holidays, let’s keep it healthy for the new year! Post pics of healthy menus, foods, recipes – you get the idea. If you include the twist in your "page to play", you'll get an extra point when it's time to vote.

They have cheese in them, right? And cheese is dairy... and diary is part of the healthy eating food pyramid (or whatever shape it is now)...so yes, I think it counts as healthy eating!

I promise I'll get a l/o done by the end of the week)) inspired by the discussion of Christmas and borsch in the other thread, I took pics at the dinner table last night, and it turns out I already have a perfect sketch - papers are trickier.. need to decide whether I want to fit monochrome)
Love it when it just comes together inspired and all)

Oh, and thank you everybody!!!


Tammy - I had STarbucks on Monday.
They had a few Holiday drinks left:
Peppermint Mocha and Caramel Brulee... but no Gingerbread, Pumpkin, or Egg Nog.

I got the caramel and it was scrump-dilidi-lump-tious!


But then they always are!
Now if they could just lower the prices!!

Lisa -
My Gastroenterologist says it is.

He says I should drink coffee as the caffeine helps the colon.

TMI?!?

LOL, Oleysa!

Actually I was shocked when the Dr told me this.
I was referred because I was having "issues" and when the Dr asked me if I drink coffee or soda I shamefully replied yes and he said that's good! He said as long as it's not overdone, caffeine stimulates the colon and is actually good for you.

I have since given up soda but I still have my 2 cups a day of coffee!!

I need to have my 2 cups of coffee. I don't think I can survive without it & yes it is good for you coz it is also a diuretic.
But my dh was told to stop coffee & drink more tea because he had a lot of iron in his system.
So it is not probably healthy for him but it is for me.

Deepa, I'm with you there...
I NEED my two cups of coffee.

I used to drink coffee and soda everyday and for my New Years resolution I decided to cut one of the 2 and drink more water. I decided that out of the 2 I could survive w/out soda. I've been doing it and I am surprised but I don't miss the soda AT ALL! In fact the thought of drinking soda actually makes me sick now.

Maybe the coffee has zero calories but all the sugar and creamer I put in it certainly doesn't! Yikes! But since all I drink otherwise is water I think I'm okay!

depends what kind of jelly was in the doughnut - straweberry or raspberry then i think i would have to vote yes because strawberries and raspberries are fruit and fruit is healthy so in that case i think there could be an argument for healthy food
