Happy Turkey Day

Thanksgiving. I remember as a kid our thanksgiving dinners.  Many years in a row we went to an all you can eat buffet for dinner. I used to fill up on roll after roll after roll.  As we got older, we started going to this Italian restaurant.  It was nice for everyone.  They had a special thanksgiving dinner for those who wanted it and the regular menu for those that did not. 

It seems that this holiday is especially about food.  Turkey, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, green beans, stuffing, rolls, and pumpkin pie is a traditional dinner for most families.  It is ok to enjoy this stuff, but not to go overboard.  If you enjoy the pie, don’t go overboard with the stuffing.  If you enjoy the bread, have fruit for dessert,

Try to exercise on thanksgiving morning.  Go our for a walk or a run in the morning.  Eat a light lunch and prepare some nutritious snacks like fruit or vegetables so that you are not starving when dinner arrives. 

How do you handle Thanksgiving?
