It was worth it, each and every holiday indulgence from Mom’s cookies to Nancy’s legendary rum balls. But my favorite jeans are tight and it’s time for January’s annual austerity plan.
As far as I’m concerned, dieting is all about cheating. I’m not suggesting visits to McDonald’s in a trench coat and sunglasses; it’s about finding ways to pack flavor into your food with fewer calories. Flavor-infused oils and vinegars are a great trick, and I get mine from Renee at Sapore (660 Pennsylvania Ave. SE www.saporeoilandvinegar.com).
