Browsing the magazine shelves, I found a few healthy tips for the holiday season. Health has photos of 8 holiday treats under 80 calories; the naga truffles look yummy. “Mix & Match Workout” and “America’s Healthiest Mall Foods” are feature articles. Prevention‘s December issue promotes “Easy Party Pleasers!” and suggests 30-minute dinners at http://prevention.com/quickandeasy. January Runner’s features “New Year, New You” and an article about dressing appropriately for the cold.
There is comfortable seating near the magazine shelves. Enjoy!
