Candy has become sort of a problem in our house. I never buy it, and yet somehow my two year old is always finding some. He could eat candy all day if I would let him. Don't get me wrong, I love a great treat, but I want to keep it just that. A treat! And if he gets it on a regular basis then it's no longer a treat.
And so, I have a new tradition I want to introduce. Or rather, a new tradition I want Santa to introduce. Instead of a stocking full of candy canes and chocolate, I want Santa to fill the stockings with exotic fruits. Goodies like kumquats, goose berries, star fruit and crab apples.
Just think! We'll have fun exploring foods we've never had before. And they will be a true treat without all the refined sugars.
But don't worry, Santa is not a total Scrooge. I have little pack of trail mix with plenty of chocolate in it.
What does Santa put in your stocking?
