Thanksgiving is coming up!Here are Six Tips:1. If you're cooking and have to "taste" the creations, make sure the "taste" is just that and not equal to a small meal. Or a large meal for that matter. Especially if you plan on dining with your guests.2. For the dinner aspect, take a "smaller" portion first so when you go back for seconds, taking another "smaller" portion equals a whole portion. Math!
My trip to the grocery store can be quite an adventure. I'm not just shopping for food. I'm peeking into other shopping carts, cleaning them out and making healthier food substituitions. Having healthy food options readily available at home makse Eating Clean that much easier. Before I head to the check out I make sure I have the following foods in my cart:· Fresh/frozen vegetables

I always think of Thanksgiving Day and New Year’s Day as the bookends on a fun time of celebration. But unfortunately, many people will slide into January with unwanted weight gain. If you want to start 2013 feeling and looking good, now is the time to be proactive. I used the livestrong.com website to estimate the calories in a typical Thanksgiving dinner (2007 calories) and the Health Status website to calculate ways for a 160lb. person to burn those calories. Of course, this is just an estimate, but it sure was fun.
5:00 - breakfast6:00 - visiting "Stop and Shop", buying gloves and Outdoor Trash Bags.6:00AM - 9:00AM.My "Outdoor activity" had began.I had collected dead leaves in Trash Bags.9:30AM - second breakfast.10:30AM - 12PM.I had visited New York Botanical Garden.Today had been "Train Show "Preview. It had been amazingly beautiful there and I had dreamed about - may be one day all Bronx will be looking exactly like NYBG today?1:00PM - I had returned home for dinner
Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Even though I have lived in the US now for well over 20 years, I have not yet quite warmed up to it. Befuddled is probably the best way to describe my reaction. I understand the tradition of family getting together. I also understand that, at its beginnings, having one day of the year where food is abundant must have felt nothing short of paradise. I realize that those poor pilgrims, sitting there with the Indians and sharing a meal, had no guarantee for another good meal for some time in the future.
