Stuff the Bird, Not Yourself

The average person consumes a maximum of 2,600 calories on a regular day. During Thanksgiving the same person consumes about 4,500! That’s almost twice as many calories in only one meal! Drink a cup of coffee or hot tea about 15 to 20 minutes before you sit down to eat to curb your appetite. You will feel fuller, eat less, and this will allow you to indulge in a few goodies, but not every goodie that comes your way. How many calories do you consume during Thanksgiving?
Dia de Gracia at my House

Turkey has been America’s top choice for a thanksgiving meal since 1863, when Thanksgiving was declared a national holiday. But not everybody eats turkey during Thanksgiving. Many of our families haven’t been in the United States since 1863.
Most of my family and friends’ families like many people know, Hispanic indiviuals like to add twists to our food and spice it up our food. Many Hispanic families prefer to make tamales over the famous main course, turkey. We also add an extra course which is posolè, a traditional Spanish stew made of pork, red chiles, and hominy corn.
Not only do we change the traditional star of the meal, we also change the drinks. Instead of crisp cranberry juice, we tend to lean more on the warmer drinks such as a rich champurado and atole made from corn flour and milk. Another drink that we’ve incorporated into Thanksgiving is ponche. Unlike American punch, ponche is served warm. It’s made out of a broth created from tropical fruit such as guavas, sugar cane etc. Regardless of the change from traditional Thanksgiving, there’s one thing that never changes- time spent with family.
It’s clear to see that turkey doesn’t make a Thanksgiving dinner; it’s the time spent together as a family and being thankful for your blessings.
