What is your favorite Thanksgiving food?
Is it the pumpkin pie? The turkey?
The stuffing? The mashed potatoes?
That weird green bean casserole with the french fried onions on top?
Whatever it is, start eating it NOW.
If your mouth is watering at the thought of turkey and stuffing, make a turkey with stuffing this week.
The fact that you even have a favorite Thanksgiving food may be the reason that you end up going overboard on Thanksgiving.
So, give yourself permission to have Thanksgiving food now, in April and even in July.
Cooking a turkey several times a year will prevent the gorging that is typical on Thanksgiving.
Suddenly, it’s just another meal instead of a once a year event.
Whatever your favorite Thanksgiving food is, your homework assignment this week is to have it now.
