Turkey Time: Minus 24 hour Countdown!

Happy early Thanksgiving UC San Diego! The holiday season is a time to celebrate and relax with those closest to you. I promise I won’t spend this post lecturing on healthy holiday swaps to make tomorrow, but I will leave you with a little food for thought.

According to Women’s Health, the average Thanksgiving meal racks in at 4,500 calories. ( That’s the equivalent of eating 8 Big Mac’s or 26 Taco Bell Tacos! Rather than gorge on just one meal, make your calories count.  Focus on eating a wide variety of foods that hit all the food groups to leave you feeling pleasantly satisfied, not stuffed. Choose foods that you enjoy, but do so in moderation. Remember the My Plate rules and try to build your plate with this template in mind.
For those of you sticking around campus, I suggest you head on over to Café Ventanas tomorrow and celebrate the holiday spirit! The festivities begin at 11am with the traditional turkey feast starting at 1pm! If you’re a procrastinator, don’t worry; you can still get tickets at the door.


Have a wonderful healthy and happy Thanksgiving! Catch ya’ on Monday J
