Just finished up reading an article in the "A Sweet Life" called Low Carb Bloggers Share Holiday Recipes and Survival Tips and my immediate reaction was a low growl.
I dislike articles like these because the advice is often generic (least common denominator) and therefore useless.
"The more you can make your own snacks and treats that satisfy, the less likely you will succumb to temptation. Take a day or two and bake some things that can be frozen for the days ahead. Offer to bring something when going to parties so you know there will be at least one thing you can munch on."
What if it's NOT a potluck party? What if the host says no?
What about situations where the event is hosted at a restaurant -- you can't bring your own food -- and you can't get the nutritional information because the restaurant isn't a chain restaurant?
Basically I would like to see more articles on what to do when I have no control over the food.
