We here at Mack Web Solutions LOVE eating. We even have designated snack time everyday. So it should come as no surprise that we are wicked excited about the upcoming Eat-and-Eat-Some-More-and-Be-Thankful-for-Stuff-and-then-Eat-More-Day (We believe most people refer to it as Thanksgiving).
Here is some expert advice on getting the most out of this delightfully gustatory holiday (and by experts…we mean US):
You warm up before you exercise right? The same holds true for Tday eating! Snack lightly (and holiday appropriately—olives stuck on your fingers, just like you are five again. We love this holiday!) throughout the day.
Take a tip from nature’s feasters: Wolfing down your food like a starving, uh, wolf is the surest way to feel as sick as a, uh, dog before you get a chance to thoroughly enjoy your repast. Take a lesson from the turtle and the hare: Slow and steady wins the yadda yadda yadda.
This day only comes around once a year. (With leftovers for the next week or so, but, potato potahto. (mmmm….potatoes…). You’re allowed to enjoy it. Even you crazy dieters can reward yourselves. How bad could it really be to consume 2,000 calories at one meal?
Be selective in what you eat.
Tday food selection strategy is NOT to be taken lightly. The table is going to be groaning under the weight of a lot of different dishes. Stomach space is limited and life is too short for Hippie Cousin Moonbeam’s really delightful tofurkey. (Not that there’s anything wrong with being a vegetarian…but Cousin Moonbeam should stay OUT of the kitchen).
As things are winding down, start a meaningful conversation on what people are genuinely thankful for.
While everyone else is talking, you can sneak the last of your favorite dishes onto your plate without much competition.
That’s what we got. But we’re open to suggestions. Got any?
Oh, and….HAPPY THANKSGIVING FROM MACK WEB!!!
