I simply love this time of the year, however, the grocery shopping hustle and bustle that is Thanksgiving has come to an end. Homes full of family and friends holding plates stacked high with traditional comfort, cups full of thankful spirits, and grateful smiles on each face and in each heart are officially of yesterday. Not sure if your plans are to shop til' you drop or indulge in a repeat of last night's feast for breakfast, but the day after Thanksgiving finds me sipping down a delicious cleansing matcha green smoothie, watching the Hallmark Channel's holiday movie marathon, resting cozily here....ahhhhhhhhh, tis' the season!

Want the inside scoop on how restaurants get you to come out of your pocket and at the end of your meal have you wondering, ‘What did I order?’
Here’s the scoop! An article written in Excelle– a social networking site created primarily for the career-minded woman, gives 10 restaurant menu ‘illusions’ that entice and ultimately get you to come out of your pocket more generously than you may have intended. Everything from, ‘this isn’t what it looks like in the commercial’ to why adding ‘bacon’ to a dish immediately increases its worth, is laid out for you here so you can be better equipped next time you dine out.
Hey, make it a great tasting Friday!
Let’s face it, most of us have trouble with dieting or, as I like to say, ‘eating right’, primarily because of what we have to cut out. It’s like a constant smack on the hand followed by the antagonistic phrase, ‘don’t eat that’!
Well a new study is underway that may make you happy camper. Per a ‘tweet’ from my fellow ‘twitter-er’ @susansandler, the online version of the health magazine Prevention, has consulted with Connecticut-based dietitian Milton Stokes, MPH, RD, regarding taboo bites that are not so taboo.
Make it a great tasting day!
Remember, SHARING is caring!
