Did you catch the recent holiday addition of the IDEA Food and Nutrition Tips Magazine? What an information packed issue, brilliantly put together with great tips to share with clients and students. I know I have been using many of them throughout the month, including in my holiday eating tips blog post. Thanks IDEA! Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Even though I have lived in the US now for well over 20 years, I have not yet quite warmed up to it. Befuddled is probably the best way to describe my reaction. I understand the tradition of family getting together. I also understand that, at its beginnings, having one day of the year where food is abundant must have felt nothing short of paradise. I realize that those poor pilgrims, sitting there with the Indians and sharing a meal, had no guarantee for another good meal for some time in the future.
