How are you doing two days after?
We seem to consume almost the same amount of food the day after and even two days after Thanksgiving Day as we do on Thanksgiving Day! Even though we knew a good move was to tie ours sneakers and work out, mashed potatoes for breakfast seemed like a great idea! Cranberry sauce, cookies and cake were perfect snacks. Every food item was warmed and eaten for lunch (not on Friday – we were busy Black Friday-ing. Scored on big-ticket items!!!). Now, two days after and after apple pie, and ice cream following dinner, we are “over it”, just exhausted with chomping in excess. We are longing for fruits and vegetables only! The plan is to toss the turkey in a tall pot and make soup with lots of water, carrots, celery – no potatoes! During the upcoming week, moments of bravery will encourage us to slowly nibble away at the other leftovers only because maybe after a three-day sabbatical, leftovers will be resemble “delicious,” again. For now, no more! Just fruits and vegetables – and water! We ran to the store and stocked up on blackberries, strawberries, cranberries, blueberries and bananas – to make sure tomorrow begins just right!
