Debbie J., MS, RD contributed this article –

You know the scene…

A bowl of goodies lurking at the reception desk in the office, at the salon, at the dry cleaners. Candy for the taking is everywhere. It’s almost too much for the eyes to bear and for your hand to resist reaching for a treat. Ahhh, the horror!
