    Turkey coma, food baby, sugar high — when it comes to Christmas calories, there's really no end to the overloading (or over-serving). And, because mom's homemade apple pie, a second mug of eggnog, and that figgy pudding might all be impossible to resist, we're saying, "Don't resist!"…or, at least don't feel guilty if you go for the eating gold. Yes, here at R29 HQ we spend as much time agonizing over our lunch orders as we do picking out our outfits — and we spend double the amount of hours on both during the celebratory season.

    Look, we all understand the need to indulge, so we've rounded up our very own festive food philosophies to offer some moral support. Think of it as an editors' eating list to comfort your cookie habit…or help you find an alternative to those mashed potatoes you love so much. Some of us fill half our plates with veggies, some of us stock up on special super foods, and some of us say "the more desserts the merrier," but, in any case, we're all paying a bit more attention to our waistlines as the trays of homemade treats pour in, and you're invited to peep our seasonal pantries so you can have your cake…and fit into that hot new cocktail dress, too.
