And these holiday llamas completely

On my desk
A
friend and I were talking
recently about our annual
fall pizza dinner. We’ve
done it for 10-plus years,
since our kids were little, but even now
that they’re not, we still get together.
“I love our traditions,” he said. Me too.
This year, amid all the turbulence in our
world, I find myself looking forward
more than ever to sharing rituals with
friends and family. Every December, my daughters and I devote
a long afternoon to baking cookies. We end the day sugared
up and butter-smeared, but with dozens of confections
to share. This year I plan to try the cookie recipes from our
readers on page 83, which have been lovingly passed down
through the generations. Another family tradition inspired our
feature on storybook sweets (page 66): Every Christmas Eve of
my childhood, my father took out a tattered illustrated copy
of Clement Clarke Moore’s A Visit From St. Nicholas, pulled
my brother and me into his lap, and read the poem aloud with
great gusto (“’Twas the night before Christmas…”). I brought
this ritual to my own family, and I’ll never forget the last time
my dad read it to my girls, his sheer delight undiminished
by the cancer that would take his life the following year. This
is the best kind of tradition—love and memory and joy all
mixed together—and we’ll read the story again this year.
Wishing you and your family the happiest of holidays.

Toyota Safety Sense™ is now standard
on many new Toyotas.
The road can be unpredictable. That’s why many new Toyotas, including the first-ever Toyota C-HR, come with
a suite of active safety features at no extra charge, including Pre-Collision System (PCS)2, Lane Departure Alert
(LDA)3 and other innovations. Toyota Safety Sense™ (TSS). Designed for safety.
Prototype shown with options. Production model will vary. 1. Drivers are responsible for their own safe driving. Always pay attention to your surroundings and drive safely. System effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See
Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details. 2. The TSS Pre-Collision System is designed to help avoid or reduce the crash speed and damage in certain frontal collisions only. It is not a substitute for safe and attentive driving. System effectiveness is dependent on many
factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details. 3. Lane Departure Alert is designed to read visible lane markers under certain conditions, and provide visual and audible alerts when lane departure is detected. It is
not a collision-avoidance system or a substitute for safe and attentive driving. Effectiveness is dependent on many factors including road, weather and vehicle conditions. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details. ©2017 Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.

Say “Fleece Navidad” with a
modern holiday mascot that’s
surprisingly easy to craft.

to make a green saddle,
brown eyes, white hair, and
a white nose from felt. Cut

from white felt, then again
from card stock. Mount each
felt piece on top of a card
stock piece for structure.
Hot-glue the back legs
behind the body, then glue
the snout, hair, and eyes in
place. Add white felt dots as
eye highlights. Hot-glue on
saddle and red pompom trim,
followed by more pompom
trim around the neck and
ankles. To hang, hot-glue a
loop of ribbon to the back.

12-gauge aluminum
wire ($6, jamaligarden

star, then slip onto
ribbon or yarn instead
of a bow.
A WOODLAND WELCOME (from page 16)
To make the stockings, print templates (download at
womansday.com/christmascrafts) and cut all shapes out of
corresponding felt and fabric. Sew the front and back of the
stocking shapes together with a ¼” seam; turn inside out.
For the cuff, cut an 8" x 16” rectangle from matching felt, sew
ends together with ¼” seam, then turn inside out and slide
over the top of the stocking. Tuck 3 inches of the cuff inside
the top of the stocking; hot-glue in place. Glue together a
¾" x 10” strip of matching felt to form a loop and hot-glue
to the stocking. From cotton batting, cut out a head shape
slightly smaller than the felt pieces. Sandwich the batting
piece between the head shapes and hot-glue the layers
together. For the scarf, cut a 6” x 48” rectangle and stitch
together on long sides; turn inside out (use selvage as edge
on short ends to avoid fraying). After attaching the body
features (see below), wrap cotton scarf twice and tie.
1 DEER: Arrange facial features in
this order: ears, antlers, cheeks, nose.
Then, for the eyes, layer the eyelashes
behind the white eye shape and use
¾” buttons for the pupils. Hot-glue
everything in place.
1
2 FOX: First, hot-glue the outer ear
shapes to the back of the head. Next
hot-glue the cheeks, nose, and eyes,
including ½” buttons for pupils. Finish
by attaching the belly and inner ear
fabric shapes with hot glue.
W O M A N S D AY

3 OWL: Start by hot-gluing the ears
in place. Then layer the eye shapes
(including ¾" buttons for the pupils)
and beak and hot-glue in place along
with the belly. Crease wings with
an iron and glue to sides under cuff.

INSTANT FIX: “In
our late 30s and 40s,
individual hairs start
to grow in finer,”
says dermatologist
Francesca Fusco, M.D.
Bulk things up by
working a root-lifting
spray or cream into
roots before blowdrying or air-drying.
Try Éprouvage
Instant Root Lifter
($18, ulta.com).
LONG-TERM HELP:
While doctors note
there’s not much
data on supplements
designed for hair
growth, hairstylists
swear by Viviscal
Extra Strength Dietary
Supplement ($50
for a 30-day supply,
viviscal.com). They
say they notice a
difference in their
clients’ hair within
a few months of their
taking the vitamin,
which contains biotin,
zinc, and iron. The
right haircut can make
a difference too. “If
you have straight hair,
a blunt cut makes it
look thicker,” says
hairstylist Matt Fugate.
“For curls, adding
layers helps them stay
bouncy and full.”

INSTANT FIX: As you age, oil glands on your head slow down
production, which results in hair feeling drier and looking less
glossy. Work a drop of a shine-enhancing serum like Garnier
Whole Blends Illuminating Moroccan Argan & Camellia Oils LeaveIn Treatment ($7, drugstores) into your palms, then run it through
your damp hair starting at the ends (which are driest), avoiding
your roots. Do this on dry hair too when not shampooing.
LONG-TERM HELP: Once a week, try this DIY deep treatment from
Dr. Fusco: Warm a scoop of coconut oil between
your hands and spread it on the bottom half of dry
hair; leave it on for at least an hour, then shampoo.
“Coconut oil not only conditions, but has also been
shown to decrease hair’s protein loss,” she says.
Prefer a ready-made mask? Try one packed with
biotin such as Tresemmé Repair & Protect 7 Instant
Recovery Mask ($5, drugstores).
ENJOY R A DI A N T COLOR
INSTANT FIX: To hide grays between colorings,
use a temporary cover-up spray or powder that
will rinse out with your next shampoo. Try
EverPro Beauty Gray Away Root Touch-Up
Magnetic Powder ($10, drugstores).
LONG-TERM HELP: “No one really knows
why hair turns gray,” says dermatologist Suneel
Chilukuri, M.D. So permanent color is still the
best solution, and if you do it at home, choose
a dye that’s designed for grays, like Clairol
Expert Age Defy ($9, drugstores). “Brunettes
should use a shade darker than their natural
color—rich tones cover grays better—and
blondes should steer toward a hue that’s more
ashy than golden, which helps grays blend
in seamlessly,” says colorist Sharon Dorram.
WANT TO ENHANCE
SILVER HAIR?
Wash it once a week with
a purple shampoo such
as Matrix Total Results So

Your eczema may be
hiding something.
You may think you know eczema, but what
you might not know is that it’s a term used to
describe a variety of skin conditions. The most
common form of eczema is actually a chronic
disease called atopic dermatitis.
You can see the signs of atopic dermatitis
on the surface, but a key underlying cause
remains hidden. Inflammation beneath the
skin can lead to the red, itchy rashes that
you try to manage, but just keep coming
back. This underlying inflammation is always
active, meaning your next flare-up is just
waiting to return.

When a loved one wrongs
you, it’s nearly impossible to
let it go. Yet these women
found the strength
to open their hearts.
BY M E L O DY WA R N I C K
NICK HAGEN. HAIR & MAKEUP: RENATA STOJCEVSKI/ZENOBIA.
T
he weekend shuntai walker
turned 10, she took her birthday
money to her father’s house in
hopes of a shopping trip. Instead,
her father, Charles Hill, “borrowed” the money
and sent Shuntai home to her mom’s house.
“I was really upset,” she remembers.
Normally her visits with Charles involved
picnics, fishing trips, and basketball games, but
after that birthday weekend, Shuntai overheard
that Charles was addicted to drugs, and her
mother forbade her to spend time with him.
Growing up fatherless hurt. “I felt abandoned
by him,” says Shuntai. The feeling haunted
other parts of her life too: “As an adult, I could
never really trust anyone.”
Their relationship continued tenuously,
marked by Charles’s obliviousness and
Shuntai’s resentment. Her dad showed up
to Shuntai’s first wedding in 1995, but it felt
awkward to have him there. He’d randomly
send a text for Mother’s Day, but she didn’t
always respond. “I saw him over the years,”
Shuntai says, “but he moved around a lot,
and because of his addiction, he was no longer
the father I remembered.”
A Different Perspective
Over time, Charles’s health problems prompted
him to do some soul-searching, and he tried to
repair his most damaged relationships. In 2012,
he began calling and texting Shuntai and
sending her cards. Under other circumstances,
Shuntai might have rejected the attention,
but her mother had just been diagnosed with
early-onset Alzheimer’s disease, and if their
grandmother passed away, she wanted her sons
to have a connection with their grandfather.
At the time Shuntai was also studying to
be a therapist. One class assignment had her
create a map of her family’s history of illness,
divorce, and addiction. To fill in the gaps on her
father’s side, she reached out to Charles and
learned more about how he’d been abandoned
by his mother when he was a child. “I started to
understand him as a man whose heart was
broken,” says Shuntai.
The Christmas after Shuntai’s mother
died, in 2016, promised to be a hard one. “Why
don’t you invite your father for Christmas?”
her boyfriend prompted. Hmm, she thought.
Why not? She sent Charles a bus ticket.
As a therapist, Shuntai knew forgiveness
happened incrementally. For her and Charles,
spending that holiday together—examining
old pictures and playing cards with her nowgrown sons—created a connection in which
fond new memories edged out bitterness.
“It was a magic moment,” Charles says. “I
hadn’t been around family for Christmas like
that in a long time.” For Shuntai, “there was
comfort in knowing I still had a connection
in this world with a parent.”
Throughout their reconciliation, Charles
continued to struggle with addiction (he
has been clean since May). Still, Shuntai

Inspire / THE POWER TO FORGIVE
I Revived
a Long-Lost
Friendship”
T
he breakup happened
on Facebook. “I just
can’t do this anymore,”
Deb Newman wrote
to her best friend, Mary Kaarto, in
a private message. Just like that,
17 years of friendship were over.
When Mary and Deb first met
at Bible study in Katy, TX, in 1999,
and became friends a year later,
they were divorced single mothers
looking for companionship. But
for both of them, new marriages
changed things. Mary became
an empty nester in a town an hour
away. Deb acquired two stepsons
and a hectic job in her husband’s
real estate appraisal business.
At the time, Mary called and Deb
didn’t. Mary pushed to meet up,
but Deb resisted, unsure of how to
prioritize her family and her
friend. In September 2011, the
tug-of-war ended in a mutual
meltdown. Deb shut down the
and email and Facebook
I bawled my eyes out.”
Deb says, “I missed her.
But it felt final.”
“if it is Your will, please bring us
back together. And if not, please
take this hurt away.” Deb uttered
a similar prayer when business
took her to Mary’s town.
Then, in spring 2016, Mary, the
author of a book about being laid
off, emailed Deb a request to use
a photo her friend had taken in a
magazine article. After a few backand-forths, Deb wrote the magic
words I’ll always love you.

From there, the emails began

many wonderful times as bad ones. And despite
everything, she still loved Jimmy. What if they had
another 25 good years ahead of them? Ultimately,
she asked him, “Do you want to separate or fix it?”
“Fix it,” Jimmy said.
The healing, Stacey says, took about a year.
After some initial counseling sessions with their
pastor, the Greenes launched a DIY marriage-repair
effort, reading relationship books and working
to curb harmful behaviors like passive aggression.
“I think we are both more aware of each other’s
needs now,” Jimmy says.

Inspire / THE POWER TO FORGIVE
LEARN
HOW TO
FORGIVE
Let go of hurt
feelings with these
steps from Nicholas H.
Ney, Ph.D., a Californiabased psychologist
who specializes in
forgiveness education.
1
I Reconciled
With My Mother”
M
ildred Kirschenbaum,
94, always prided
herself on telling her
daughter exactly what
she thought of her. Gayle’s face: in need
of a nose job. Gayle’s relationship status:
single, clearly because she was too
choosy. “According to my mother,” Gayle
says, “I couldn’t do anything right,
and my two brothers could do no wrong.”
Because of Mildred’s harsh criticism,
Gayle’s childhood home in suburban
New York felt like enemy territory, filled
with humiliations so searing that Gayle
graduated from high school early so
she could escape to college. A successful
career as a TV producer and filmmaker
followed, as did a healthy distance—
Gayle lived in New York City, while
Mildred moved to Boca Raton, FL—
and yet their relationship still struggled.
“I felt angry all the time,” says Gayle.
A New Path Forward
Shortly after her 50th birthday, Gayle
hit a breaking point. To achieve
lasting happiness, she knew she had
to find peace. She decided to apply
her professional skills to trying to heal
the relationship—she would make
a documentary about her journey to
forgive her mother. Surprisingly,
Mildred agreed to participate: “I did it
for Gayle’s peace of mind,” she says.
56
D E C E M B E R 2 0 1 7/J A N U A R Y 2 0 1 8
In the first few scenes of the
resulting 2011 film, Look at Us Now,
Mother!, Mildred snipes at her
daughter about her makeup. When
they aren’t fighting, Gayle searches
through family documents and
speaks with relatives to find out more
about Mildred’s life. She uncovers
a childhood marred with poverty and
suffering—Mildred’s immigrant
father twice attempted suicide, and
her sister died as a baby.
Gayle had always felt held captive
by her troubled childhood, but Mildred,
she realized, had been unhappy too.
The revelation awakened Gayle’s
empathy. “When those insults and
criticisms happened, I looked at her
as someone who was wounded and
needed love herself,” she says. Gradually,
understanding her mother’s past and
adjusting her expectations of their
relationship led Gayle to forgive Mildred.
Mother and daughter still fight.
Sometimes they hang up on each other,
then call right back. Each is, in a sense,
Gayle says, the other’s closest friend.
In the final scenes of Gayle’s
documentary, mother and daughter are
traveling together, posing arm in arm
for photos. “I’m happy that we’re friends,
Gayle,” says Mildred. “I love you.”
“I love you, Mom,” Gayle responds.
End scene.
W O M A N S D AY M A G A Z I N E
REFLECT
Consider how
past relationships may
influence how you
react to a slight. Ask
yourself, Can I view
this offense less
personally? If you
can pinpoint the
source of old pain, you
stand a better chance
of healing current
misunderstandings.
CHANGE YOUR
MINDSET If you
can’t seem to shake
feelings of resentment
toward a person who
has hurt you, try to
focus on something
kind he or she has
done for you, Ney
suggests. “This may
help you regulate your
emotional thermostat
and move away from
negative feelings.”
2
DON’T EXPECT
AN APOLOGY
Forgiveness shouldn’t
depend on another
person’s words
or actions, and it
“doesn’t mean you’re
forgetting something
painful or excusing
poor behavior,”
says Ney. “It’s more
about deciding
to make peace with
what happened.”

you remain included in your
family’s day-to-day. You feel more
motivated to get back into your
routine,” says Julie.
Julie and Joseph consulted
with Riley, other wheelchair
users, and medical professionals
to perfect plans for Wheel Pad’s
footprint and other details like
the placement of handrails and
electrical outlets. One of the most
innovative features is a built-in
track from the bedroom to the
bathroom for a Hoyer lift, a device
caregivers rely on to hoist and
move people with mobility issues.
In 2016, Julie and Joseph
completed construction of the
first fully functional Wheel Pad
prototype. This year the company
received orders for and built its
first units, which can be leased for
$3,000 a month or purchased
for $60,000. Julie will work with
local contractors to deliver and
install each unit.
In April, disaster struck again.
Julie and Joseph’s longtime friend
Cynthia Payne-Meyer fractured
two vertebrae while boogie
boarding, and she must now use a
wheelchair. This time, the couple
knew how to help: They offered
to let Cynthia use the Wheel Pad
prototype for free, and the unit
was installed right beside the
garden of her Putney, VT, home
in July. “I was overwhelmed by
their generosity,” says Cynthia.
Once she is done with it, the Wheel
Pad will stay in rotation as a free
unit for others in need. Says Julie,
“Being able to improve lives gives
so much meaning to our work.”
For details, go to wheelpad.com.
As the winner of our Women Entrepreneurs Contest—sponsored by Woman’s
Day, Leading Women Entrepreneurs, and Provident Bank—Julie won $2,500.

ight years ago,
Riley Poor, 25,
was paralyzed in
a swimming pool
accident and was
forced to live in a hotel because he
couldn’t find wheelchair-accessible
housing. His godparents, Joseph
Cincotta, principal at LineSync
Architecture, and Julie Lineberger,
the firm’s CEO, eventually helped
Riley retrofit a house to his needs.
But they wished they’d been able
to make Riley’s life a little easier
during his long recovery.
“What if there had been
a room attached to his mom’s
or dad’s house so Riley could
have been with family while he
recuperated?” Joseph wondered
aloud over dinner with Julie
and Riley one night in 2010.
With Julie’s input, Joseph
and his colleagues began to
sketch out a concept that would
give wheelchair users a private
bedroom and bathroom as well
as access through a door to a
loved one’s house. The resulting
blueprint detailed a structure they
called Wheel Pad, a 200-squarefoot space built on a flatbed trailer
that could be delivered nearly
anywhere and connected to the
electricity and plumbing of an
existing house. “When you’re able

ating protein throughout the
day—rather than mostly just at
lunch or dinner—can set you up for
more muscle later in life, according
to a recent study published in the American
Journal of Clinical Nutrition. Your body
is constantly building new proteins in your
muscles, but there’s an uptick in production
two to three hours after you eat protein-rich
foods. So including this nutrient at every meal
provides more opportunities to build muscle

TALK BACK

Can I fight a
cold naturally?
SLEEP BETTER TONIGHT
Dr. Oz: There’s still no cure
for the common cold, but you
don’t need to be miserable
while it runs its course. Many
all-natural solutions can ease
your symptoms and help you
bounce back faster.
That series you’re watching is just so good, you don’t
want to turn it off. But it’s a wise idea to power down.
A new study published in the Journal of Clinical Sleep
Medicine found that binge-watching led to poor sleep
and fatigue. Why? Viewing back-to-back episodes keeps
your brain “cognitively aroused” rather than in a readyfor-sleep state, making it harder to nod off in bed. To get
some shut-eye, disable autoplay if you’re using a streaming
service so you (not your device) stay in control.

BREW BLACK TEA
While you may think coffee is your only chance at an
alert morning, research published in the journal Appetite
found that drinking two cups of black tea over the
course of 60 to 90 minutes sharpened focus, in part due
to theanine, an amino acid found in black (and green)
tea. No matter what type you choose, brew it for two to
three minutes in freshly boiled water to help extract the
most theanine out of every cup. (Many teas contain low
to moderate amounts of caffeine—on the whole, less
than coffee. You’ll still get a lift, but it will be gradual.)

Multitasking can make you as much as 40% less productive

M.P.H., a certified health coach at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for

There’s an ideal temp for better

might think. (A bedroom that’s
too warm can cause you to

they not only snoozed up to 30
minutes longer but also said they
were more alert the next day.
All those thoughts bouncing

she mean by that? Could this
mole be cancerous?) can seriously
drag you down, zapping your

it can be hard to remember what
you need. The key is to focus on
what’s actually calmed you down
in the past instead of what you
think should have calmed you
down (e.g., spa days and yoga).
Zone in on what’s worked for you
before (listening to a silly song
on full blast and dancing around
the living room; screaming into
a pillow), then do it again when
you need a destressor.
What’s different

Even mild
dehydration
can render
you lethargic
or unable

Some days will be tough, but
you can avoid spiraling too far into
a woe-is-me rabbit hole if you
gain a little perspective. Think,
OK, I have the same job I had
yesterday, the same friends, the
same partner. Simply noticing
that not much has changed can
help you avoid unnecessary
worry and just see a bad day
for what it is: one day.
Is this important to
me right now?
Establishing short-term priorities
is a good way to get organized.
When you ponder a broad
question like What am I going
to do with my life?, add “right
now ” to the end, then check in
with yourself every six months.
This helps frame what’s important
to you and how you’re going to
harness your immediate energy.

BETTER SLEEP,
Healthier Heart
You focus on staying active and eating well—but do you also prioritize
your slumber? Missing out on a good night’s rest can impact your ticker
in a big way. Follow these rules to get quality zzz’s. BY B A R B A R A B R O DY
1
Wake up at the
same time every day
Your internal body clock controls when
you naturally feel most tired and most alert.
If you opt to stay up late and then sleep in on weekends,
it can throw off this process because your sleep and wake
times are inconsistent. Researchers at the University of
Arizona found that regularly altering your sleep schedule by
just an hour—say, going to bed an hour later on weekend
nights and waking up an hour later in the morning—could
be associated with an up to 11% increase in heart disease
risk. Try to stick to the same schedule seven days a week.
SLEEP RULE
2
Tell your doctor if
you crave tons of sleep
If eight hours is good, 10 must be great—
right? While individual sleep needs
vary, it doesn’t generally work that way. “Too much sleep
can increase the chance of having a heart attack or stroke,”
says Amgad N. Makaryus, M.D., chairman of cardiology
at Nassau University Medical Center in New York. One
reason oversleeping might be a red flag: Some people who
snooze more are depressed, and depression is tied to heart
disease. Aim to sleep between seven and nine hours, and
if you routinely need more, discuss it with your physician.
SLEEP RULE
3
Don’t brush
off insomnia
People who have trouble falling or
staying asleep are more likely to have
a heart attack or stroke, according to a review of 15
studies published in the European Journal of Preventive
Cardiology. Insomnia may mess with your metabolism,
interfere with hormones, raise your blood pressure, and
elevate levels of inflammation. While an occasional restless
night might not be a big deal, if you toss and turn three
or more nights per week for at least three months, see
your doctor or a sleep specialist.
SLEEP RULE
4
If you snore, get
screened for apnea
Snoring is often a sign of sleep apnea,
a condition in which you stop breathing
for several seconds at a time during the night. If you have
this disorder, your risk of high blood pressure, arrhythmia,
stroke, and heart failure goes way up. When you stop
breathing momentarily, your body jolts awake and your
stress response kicks into gear, says Marie-Pierre St-Onge,
Ph.D., associate professor at Columbia University Medical
Center. Consider a sleep evaluation to see if treatment
with a CPAP breathing device is necessary.
LET S LE E PI N G DOGS LI E— E L S EWH E RE
Allowing your dog to crawl into your bed can disrupt shut-eye, says a new Mayo Clinic study. But good
news: You likely won’t lose zzz’s if your pup snoozes in your room (results show you may even sleep better
knowing Fido is there). So go ahead and let your pup nod off nearby, but in his own bed.

The Powerful Nutrition of Oats
Four science-backed reasons to make oats
a part of your daily meal plan
1
2
Provide Energy
Promote Satiety
Fiber-filled foods like
whole-grain oats help promote a
steadier, more consistent release
of glucose into your bloodstream.
Energy that’s absorbed gradually
is energy that lasts, helping you
fuel busy mornings and
start your day strong.
“Whole-grain oats can help promote
satiety because they contain both
soluble and insoluble fiber,” says
London. “This may slow down the
rate of digestion and absorption in
your GI tract.” And if you feel full,
she adds, “you could be less likely
to graze on extra calories.”
3
Support Digestion
4
Benefit Heart Health
The insoluble fiber in oats can aid
in moving things through your
gut, helping to keep you on schedule.
London adds, “Drinking plenty of
water with fiber-filled foods may
also assist with regularity. Aim to
increase your intake of both fluids
and fiber-filled foods gradually.”
Beta-glucan, a type of fiber
found in oats, has been shown to
lower LDL cholesterol, a key factor
in reducing risk of cardiovascular
disease. When included in a diet low
in saturated fat, 3 g of beta-glucan
per day helps lower cholesterol—
a 40 g serving of oats has 2 g.

Six ways to stay on track and avoid extra pounds.
@JoyBauer
T
he season is
filled with
opportunities
to overindulge,
which can make you feel
overwhelmed and out of
control. But it doesn’t have
to be that way. Use these
simple strategies to take
charge of your eating
routine and feel your best
in the new year.
MAKE A SNACK BOWL
Little bites of treats can add up
quickly, so if you’re tempted to
munch while baking or cooking, fill
a bowl with non-starchy vegetables,
such as grape tomatoes, bell pepper
sticks, and cucumber slices. You can
still nibble but with a better outcome.
2
BEFORE YOU BEGIN
RUNNING ERRANDS...
BYOM: BRING
YOUR OWN MUNCHIES
Pack emergency eats in your purse
so you’re not easily seduced by
fast-food options. This starter kit of
slimming snacks keeps well: a small
bag of nuts and seeds (almonds
and sunflower seeds are a great
combination); a few sticks of string
cheese; an apple, a banana, or a pear.
3
AS YOU SHOP
AT THE MALL...
4
During Family Gatherings…
TAKE A SEAT
Make it a rule that you can
eat only while sitting down—
not standing. This will help you
focus on savoring what’s in front
of you and prevent you from
becoming distracted and unaware
of the fact that you’re full.
5
SAVE THE EVIDENCE
After you’ve eaten a few
apps, resist the urge to clear
your plate. Instead, hold on to
it as a reminder of what you’ve
already eaten. The remaining bones,
wrappers, or toothpicks can help
you skip seconds.
6
KEEP YOUR
HANDS BUSY
In one hand, hold a low-cal
drink, like a wine spritzer. In the
other, hold a water or seltzer. That
leaves you no hands to hold a plate
of food or mindlessly grab snacks.
Bonus: You’ll stay hydrated, which
can help relieve stress-induced
headaches.
GIVE YOURSELF
A TIME FRAME
Decide on a deadline and a goal,
such as 30 minutes to buy two
presents. You’ll be less likely to swing
by the food court if the clock is
ticking. Plus, you’ll move faster
and burn more calories.
124
JUST SAY NO TO FOOD PUSHERS!
It’s easy to feel obligated to eat food you don’t actually want.
Instead, come up with an effective way to politely turn down a dish.
Try: “Looks amazing, but I’m so satisfied. Maybe later!”

Start Building
Grab a shovel, a few identical
sturdy buckets or containers,
and waterproof mittens or gloves.
Most important, you’ll need a
good six inches of ground cover
of moist snow that you can
easily shape into a snowball.
Beware of snowbanks, roads, and
sloped roofs, which could dump
an avalanche onto your fort. Outline
your structure—circular forts with a
step-over entryway are strongest;
a horseshoe shape is a compromise,
but good if you’re short on snow.
To make “bricks,” pack snow in pails,
then flip over and tap to loosen
them. Place bricks side-by-side along
your outline, then stack so the ones
on the upper rows straddle the joints
of those below. Alternate molding
and laying bricks with your kids.

Last Minute
Nearly three-quarters of
Americans still have gifts to
buy as of December 18—but
don’t throw caution to the
wind just because you’re short
on time. Shopping and finance
experts spill their secrets for
maximizing a deal.
Collect cash back
Andrea Woroch recommends
Dosh (free, iOS and Android, dosh
.cash), an app that allows you to get
instant cash back on purchases
from big box stores, department
stores, restaurants, and more. Link
your credit or debit card to the
app, “then use it for your holiday
purchases and apply the cash to
help pay off your credit card bill
later,” she says.
AVOID NEW
CREDIT CARDS
Don’t be fooled by
store credit cards’ big
initial deals, which often
charge high fees to offset
the discounts. Instead,
use the points on
your current card
to save.
JOHN LAWTON/STUDIO D. PROP STYLIST: ALMA MELENDEZ FOR HALLEY RESOURCES.
Save in the short term
Sign up for a free trial of
ShopRunner (shoprunner.com) or
Amazon Prime (amazon.com). For
30 days, you can enjoy free two-day
shipping from both companies and
free returns from ShopRunner. If
you decide to cancel, set a reminder
to do it before the trial expires to
avoid being charged.
Buy in bulk
If you’re a member of Costco
or Sam’s Club, purchase a gift
basket and divvy up the contents.
“Last year, Sam’s Club sold a
set of five coffee tumblers, with
cocoa mix and marshmallows,
for $20,” says Kendal Perez.
“That’s just $4 per gift!”
Find day-of discounts
For the truly last-minute shopper,
Walgreens and CVS offer sameday pickup for gifts like photo
books and calendars at very
affordable prices.
Get instant cash off
Go in together
To save on online shopping, install
a free plug-in on your Internet
browser. Bobbi Rebell is a fan of
Gumdrop (go to goodsearch
.com/gumdrop.com and click on
“Get Gumdrop for free”), which
automatically finds and applies the
best coupons and deals at checkout.
You can also use Gumdrop to
give to charity. Look for the
“activate donation” button while
you’re shopping online.
If your child is asking for a bigticket item that is beyond your
budget, organize a group gift.
Rebell recently discovered iSow
(isow.com), a free service that
allows kids and parents to request
donations from other family
members and friends toward a
dream gift, like a trip to Disney
World or a new computer.
Send an e-card
Merchants including Best Buy,
Amazon, Nordstrom, Barnes &
Noble, Starbucks, and The Home
Depot offer gift cards via email
within minutes of purchase,
meaning you can wait until the
absolute last minute to send a gift.
W O M A N S D AY M A G A Z I N E
Lock in the lowest price
Joanie Demer is a fan of the Amazon
app for price-matching. “Even if
there’s no time left for Amazon
Prime shipping, scan any item at
Best Buy, Toys R Us, Home Depot,
Bed Bath & Beyond, or Target using
the app, and if the price is lower
on Amazon, simply request a price
match at the register,” she says.

Help With
HOLIDAY BILLS
The fun and festivities are over,
and now the money is due.
A recent survey revealed that
Americans have around $1,000
in post-holiday credit card
and other debt. Here’s how to
pay it off in record time.
Use a windfall wisely
After the season of giving, you may
be tempted to blow cash gifts on a
little something for yourself, but use
that extra money to pay off some
of your bills instead. Take it from
Cameron Huddleston: “The best gift
you can give yourself is to start the
new year debt-free.”
Get free advice
Think of the Clarity Money app
(free, iOS only, Android coming
soon, claritymoney.com) as an
automatic financial adviser. The app
will find discounts to lower bills,
alert you to paid subscriptions that
you never use, and help you stick to
budgets and save toward a goal
(like paying off that shopping debt).
SAVE
EVEN MORE
Before you shop, look
at deal sites like
slickdeals.net and
couponsherpa.com
for coupons and
promo codes.
Make a payoff plan
To break your debt into more
manageable chunks, choose a
specific date, say three or six
months from now, by which you
hope to pay it off. “This approach
will help you calculate how much
money you should put toward your
debt every pay period,” says Perez.
Prep for meals
on weekends
According to the U.S. Department
of Agriculture, nearly one-third of
our food dollars go toward eating
out. Add one homemade meal per
week until you’re eating every
breakfast and almost every dinner
at home and brown-bagging your
lunches at least three times a week.
130
D EC EM B ER 2017/ JA N UA RY 2018
Put that savings toward your bills.
“Hopefully, you keep the habit and
apply the money you save toward
next year’s holiday celebration,”
says Donna Freedman.
With Wells Fargo’s Save as You
Go option, $1 is transferred from
checking to savings every time you
make a purchase or pay a bill with
the bank’s online bill-pay service.
Save automatically
Pay twice a month
Several banks offer free ways to
save without thinking about it.
Bank of America’s Keep the Change
program rounds up each purchase
to the nearest dollar and transfers
the difference from your checking
account to your savings account.
If you don’t have the extra funds to
pay more than the minimum on your
credit card each month, pay half the
minimum twice a month, which will
help you save on the interest being
charged. Set up automatic payments
to avoid having to think about dates.

t’s a tuesday afternoon,
and John Gentilella,
a teenager who has
attention deficit disorder
(ADD), is taking a
camel named Sage on a long walk
at Green Chimneys school
in Brewster, NY. The 175-acre
nonprofit farm provides therapeutic
education and life-skills training for
kids with special needs and a safe,
permanent home for animals, some
of which were once mistreated.
Founded in 1947 by Samuel
Ross, Ph.D., the K–12 school has
expanded from a single building
with only 11 students into a
nonprofit with more than 500
employees, two campuses, and a
$35 million annual budget. Of its
students, 204 live at or commute
to its Brewster campus and 40
attend a middle school in Carmel,
NY. Thanks to state funding and
private donors, all students who go

to Green Chimneys do so for free.
Every day at the farms, the
kids feed and care for sheep, goats,
birds, and horses, among other
creatures, and train shelter dogs.
“These tasks help children learn
responsibility,” says Samuel, who
at 88 still lives and works (alongside
his wife, Myra) on the school’s
Brewster campus. “The kids also
learn that if they take good care of
the animals, the animals will give
them unconditional love.”
A NEW ENVIRONMENT
The animal-based therapeutic
programs are offered as an
alternative to traditional schools
for students with mood and
developmental challenges such
as bipolar disorder and autism
spectrum disorder. John
transferred to the school in 2013
after he was diagnosed with ADD.
“[At his old school], I was getting

is not something
every kid gets to do, but
it’s fun and relaxing,”
says John Gentilella.
Maria has seen positive changes
in her son’s decision-making and
problem-solving skills. John too
has noticed the effects of his bond
with the camel. “Sage used to have
a lot of temper tantrums where
she’d be wide-eyed and kick her
legs, so I would have to be patient
and wait for her to get it out of her
system,” he says. “Now I use
that patience with schoolwork too.
I know that it’s going to take a
while, but I have to get through it.”
Samuel is motivated to continue
expanding the school’s mission.
“It’s been great to see the tiny
school that I built transform into
all that it is today,” Samuel says.
“Children come here to do better.
This is my life’s work.”

FOR THE FROSTING
3 large egg whites
¾ cup granulated sugar
Pinch salt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 Heat oven to 325°F. Oil a 10-cup
tube pan and lightly coat in flour; tap
out excess.
2 In a medium bowl, whisk together
flour, cocoa, baking powder, salt,
and baking soda. In a second bowl,
combine sour cream and extracts.
3 Using a food processor, pulse
together butter and sugars until
combined, about 2 minutes. Add
eggs one at a time, pulsing until
incorporated before adding the next.
Pulse in sour cream mixture. Add flour
mixture in three parts, alternating
with coffee, until just incorporated.
4 Transfer batter to prepared cake pan
and bake until a wooden pick inserted
into center comes out clean, 40 to
50 minutes. Transfer cake to wire rack
and let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then
invert onto rack to cool completely.
5 Meanwhile, make decorations.
Line a large rimmed baking sheet
with parchment paper. Place ½ cup
sugar and 1 cup water in a medium
pot and cook on medium until sugar
dissolves. Increase heat to high and
let boil 1 minute. Remove from heat.
Dip rosemary into syrup, then remove,
shaking off any excess, and coat in
remaining ½ cup sugar; transfer to
prepared baking sheet. Repeat with
cranberries. Set aside to dry.
6 Just before serving, make frosting.
Fill a medium saucepan with 1 in.
water and bring to a simmer. Place
egg whites, sugar, and salt in the large
bowl of a stand mixer and place over
the pan of simmering water. Turn off
heat and whisk mixture constantly
until sugar melts, 3 to 5 minutes.
Test by rubbing a little of the mixture
between your fingers (it should not
feel grainy). With a stand mixer, beat
mixture until stiff glossy peaks form,
7 to 10 minutes. Beat in vanilla extract.
7 Spoon onto cooled cake and
decorate with sugared cranberries,
rosemary, cookies, candy canes, and
candied orange slices.

saucepan or deep fryer over medium
heat to 350°F to 360°F. In a large bowl,
whisk together remaining 1 cup sugar,
2 Tbsp poppy seeds, and 2 tsp zest.
Working with 3 to 4 at a time, carefully
transfer doughnuts to hot oil and cook
until golden brown, 1 minute per side.
Use a large slotted spoon to transfer

mixture, tossing to coat. (You will
have some left over.) Let cool on a
large rimmed baking sheet.
7 Fill a large piping bag fitted with a
½-in. round tip with jam. Cut a narrow
slit in side of each doughnut. Push tip
into each slit and gently squeeze jam

Classic Recipe Makeover
FROM THE WOMAN’S DAY ARCHIVES DECEMBER 1950
Lemon Poppy Seed
Jelly Doughnuts
See page 137 for recipe.
BACK THEN
Sufganiyot (jelly
doughnuts) are
pillowy Hanukkah
delicacies, deep-fried
to symbolize the
miracle of the oil that
lasted eight days.
They became popular
in the U.S. in the
1920s, after Jewish
refugee Adolph Levitt
invented the first
doughnut machine in
New York City.
TODAY’S T WIST
STEVE GIRALT. PROP STYLIST: KARIN OLSEN.
QUICK TIP
Don’t have a piping
tip? Make a shallow hole
in the doughnut with
a skewer, then fill with
jam using a resealable
sandwich bag with the
corner snipped.
We simplified
the ingredient list
by taking out the
shortening and
corn syrup. We also
added lemon zest
and poppy seeds to
the dough and sugar
coating, as these
traditional ingredients
are often associated
with the holidays
in Eastern Europe.
