A Christmas Snack

Healthy Striped Christmas apple snack

As we enjoy the holidays, we strive for all kinds of health:

Financial health – living generously without going beyond our budget

Spiritual – not only “keeping the Christ in Christmas” but letting his presence change us throughout the year (“letting Christ out of Christmas”)

Wellness Wheel - ELCA

Developed by the Lutheran Church (ELCA), these are ways that our lives can be healthy.

Emotional health – recognizing that for many, this is a difficult season.  Even for those not actively grieving, expectations are high.

Physical heath – exercising even when it’s cold, eating just enough and eating healthy

Intellectual, Interpersonal, Vocational health – learning, relating well to others, believing that our job has a mission that matters

And so – I offer you one simple step toward health.  If you’re going to a potluck, bring fresh, healthy, and festive apples.  Or if you just want something special, here you go.

A festive find - the Christmas star in the center of an apple.  Who knew!?!

They only take a few seconds to make, so you have a few extra minutes for other health ventures.  They don’t cost a lot but are a fun conversation piece – especially when they find the Star of Christmas in the center of their apple chip!

Merry and healthy Christmas to you!
