Thanksgiving and Your Health
Ah, Thanksgiving! Football, food, and family not necessarily in that order right? Don’t deprive yourself, it’s a holiday! Don’t skip breakfast. Moderation is key. Remember veggies are fiber and fill you up. Eat slowly. Go for a 30 minute walk instead of napping. Enjoy the Season!
