January is health month at THE NIBBLE: healthier foods to compensate for that rich eating from Thanksgiving through New Year’s Eve...and to “save up” for Valentine sweets. But there are so many fascinating things to learn (and eat)—like all of the different types of eggs and limes. We love a squeeze of lime over vegetables, in sparkling water and other beverages, and especially over salads (try a dressing made of three parts olive oil and two parts fresh-squeezed lime juice. But just because we’re not focusing on carbs this month doesn’t mean that you have to avoid them. Check out the January Food Holidays list, and you’ll find something to celebrate almost every day. Here’s to a healthy New Year!
