    "Thank you for the great work. The newly painted room looks fantastic. Tom notices everything so that if there is a chance I might want something additional I can have them do it. I feel very comfortable with the guys, and as usual your company came through, does what I need done, and does not disappoint me."

  • 7 Worst Holiday Foods For Your Health

    [caption id="attachment_5154" align="alignleft" width="165" caption="Dunkin Donuts Muffin"]Holiday Meals[/caption]

    Yes the Holidays are a time of splurging at the dinner table and eating a few cookies at night, but don't overdo it. Health and food experts David Zinczenko and Matt Goulding are here to give us the 7 worst Holiday foods:

    #7 Worst Holiday Beverage
    Organic Valley Eggnog (1 cup)
    360 calories
    20 g fat (12 g saturated)
    34 g sugar

    Traditional eggnog is made with whole milk, cream, and eggs—not exactly a low-cal trio. And the fact that Organic Valley's is organic doesn't undo the damaging effect of 20 grams of fat and 34 grams of sugar. Each cup of this nog has more calories than a McDonald’s cheeseburger. Bolthouse, on the other hand, gives eggnog a healthy makeover by swapping out milk and cream for low-fat milk, effectively slashing the calories by more than half.

    Bolthouse Farms Holiday Nog (1 cup)
    160 calories
    3 g fat (2 g saturated)
    24 g sugar

    #6 Worst Holiday Coffeehouse Drink
    Starbucks Peppermint Mocha (grande)
    410 calories
    15 g fat (9 g saturated)
    54 g sugar

    Nothing makes you feel more warm and fuzzy during the holidays than a hot beverage on a cold day. Coffeehouses are well aware of this fact, so every year they serve up a variety of sugar-loaded concoctions designed to attract patrons looking for a warm cup of holiday cheer. Take this confection-like drink from Starbucks: It contains more than 12 teaspoons of sugar. That's the equivalent of about five candy canes! To get the same peppermint-y effect minus the sugar binge, you can either opt for sugar-free syrup or order a cappuccino and ask for just two squirts of syrup.

    Drink This Instead!
    Cappuccino w/ 2 pumps of peppermint syrup (grande)
    160 calories
    4 g fat (2 g saturated)
    20 g sugar
