Thanksgiving Day Reminder Tips for Healthy Foodies
As foodies, we will enjoy the wonderful tastes of this day, served with a heaping dose of fellowship and love. Yippee! Meanwhile, remember these tips to keep it pleasant and not overdone:
1. Walk, yes....Nap, no! On ordinary days, naps can be part of a healthy lifestyle. But today it's much more important to walk off some of that high-fat meal you just had. Bundle up, take your umbrella if need be, and head outside. Talk a family member into coming with you. The time will fly.
2. Limit liquid calories. 'Nuf said.
3. Wait at least a half hour between dinner and dessert. Then take just a little bit of the dessert you love most.
My day job is college professor -- of mass communication and journalism, at the University of Cincinnati. I've probably got a few more years to go, and it's a good gig. Love to travel, cook, dine out, and work out.
