Getting Ready for Thanksgiving


Sunday, November 18, 2012

I love everything about Thanksgiving.

I love the history.
I love the spiritual significance.
I love the food. (that's a given)

EXCEPT I DON'T like the calorie totals at the end of the day! (Holy smokes! How did THAT happen??!!?!?!)

So I'm embracing this Sparkblog about intentional eating:
7 Ways to Eat Mindfully on Thanksgiving or Any Day
www.dailyspark.com/blog.
asp?post=7_ways_to_eat_min
dfully_on_thanksgiving_or_any_day


Among the helpful tips, it encourages us:
"This Thanksgiving season may be the perfect time to start dedicating a little time daily to increase your appreciation and focus on the foods you select, prepare and eat.

Start with small, simple steps. Implement techniques and easy acts to eat more slowly, experience the flavors of food more intensely, and to seek pleasure in the complete eating process. "

I WILL be reading and re-reading this blog everyday this week...
And I WILL be thankful (we have SO MUCH to be thankful for)

How about you?
Do you have a strategy?

    My strategy is to drink flavored water in a wine glass (with a slice of fruit as decor) while cooking and playing games with the family.
