As I am waiting for my pumpkin cheesecake to finish baking, I thought it would be a good time to send out some thoughts for Thanksgiving!! I think overall the holidays are hard. We often feel like there are expectations of what should take place that really just leave everyone feeling stressed. So instead of striving for the perfect holiday, instead try to enjoy your day, be thankful for the positive things and don't expect everything to be perfect! Eat well, eat lots of veggies and enjoy smaller portions of the more rich items. Have dessert, have a serving of something sinfully rich & delicious, enjoy every bite and be thankful for it! Try to take a walk at some point during the day if you can, if not, there is always Friday. Try to keep it low stress....low stress is definitely a key to health, one of the many things that is hard to do during the holidays!!
