Maybe it's the snow outside. Maybe it's the dipping temperatures. But right about now I am craving a cup of hot, steaming … tea. Yes, I'm a coffee drinker. I like coffee's taste. I like its texture. And Starbucks is one of my go-to meeting/working/socializing spots (my personal fave is a soy latte). But winter is also tea time. There's just something about tea that conjures up thoughts of healing, soothing vibes.

OK, hands down. It's time to take back your health and stay on track with these healthy holiday habits.
