“Doughnut lovers love me for saying this,” says cold-weather expert Murray Hamlet, DVM, formerly of the U.S. Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine in Natick, Massachusetts. “You need more calories in winter. You need to eat more fatty, slow-burning foods. I eat greasy in the morning–doughnuts work–[then]carbohydrates in the afternoon, and greasy again at night.”

    I speak from the experience of having traveled to all but three states in my 72 years. The best doughnuts that I’ve ever eaten, besides my mother’s, are made and sold in the Meriden, NH Deli Mart in Rt120.

    I wish the spelling :”donut” would go away.
