As I am sure you have noticed, the Hollidays are officially upon us. November and December are the time to sit around a table with family and eat until you pass out. No? Just my family?
Well this year I am breaking the habit. Of course I will sit around the table, but there will be no eating until I pass out. Yeah, yeah, we blame it on the Turkey. Say it's "too much tryptophan" that induces our post binging catatonic state. But really, it's because we have just stuffed our bodies so full of food that it only has enough energy to digest the food, not keep us awake at the same time! Something's gotta give.
That's why this year, I am following a few simple cardinal rules of Thanksgiving.
1. Fill half of your plate with vegies. We all like to eat, so eat the good stuff.
2. Don't let your food touch. This makes you take smaller portions.
3. Don't snarf down the first plate just so you can have seconds. Enjoy the food. Talk between bites. Think if something you are thankful for before each bite. If you can't think of something, don't take a bite until you can.
So go, enjoy your holliday and don't ruin your hard work thus far!
