The holiday season is upon us. Halloween down. Thanksgiving on deck.
Now, of course, Thanksgiving is a holiday that is about so much more than just food. It’s about togetherness. Community. Gratitude. And a whole plethora of other warm fuzzy feels. All good stuff, too. However, since it was a holiday forged around a feast….food kind of steals the show on Thanksgiving Day.
And you know what? That’s cool. I love food. A lot. And I definitely think that day spent with people you love, celebrating that you are a lucky duck for all that you have deserves a feast. But a good feast. After all, a celebration should make you feel amazing…mind, body and soul…not leave you reaching for TUMS and stretchy pants by the end of the day.
