Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from MindBodyPlate! Some thoughts to keep in mind as you join loved ones around the table tomorrow:

  1. Approach every single bite with mindful awareness.
  2. Take periodic breaks to gauge your fullness level on a scale of 1-10 (and decide to stop before 8).
  3. Occasional indulgence is a sign of healthy balance.
  4. Full is not fat. Fat is not bad.
  5. As always, it’s important to cultivate a sense of humor about these things:

Yours Truly expressing a common post-Thanksgiving sentiment, “I’m Not Pregnant, I’m Just Fat” (music & lyrics by Katie Thompson, accompanied by Sean Kana), as a part of my one woman show, Eat Your Heart Out.
