Happy Day After

26 Fri, 2010 § Leave a comment

I hope you had a lovely & safe Thanksgiving — & that you stay safe if you are out & about today!  Yikes, we avoid the Black Friday frenzy at all costs.

Even though Dave & I had a fairly simple Thanksgiving yesterday, I feel I stressed the food more than I had wanted & didn’t spend enough time with him.

Well, we did make time for a little bodywork session because his shoulder was in need of some serious mobilization…& we started the day off with yoga.

But we’re going to make up for the actionlessness [what? it could be a word] of the rest of our day by going for a hike or climbing — doing something together.

So, I’ll tell you about our meal tomorrow.

For now, here’s a little remedy if you’re feeling the “gut shot” of all that gobbling.

Make a simple green smoothie chock full of nourishing foods to cleanse & re-energize.  Try a mix of 3 cups kale or spinach, 1 cup frozen blueberries, 1 small banana, 1 T chia seeds & 1 cup unsweetened almond milk.

& if you’re not pumpkined out yet — as if that’s possible — try this healthy snack.

Pumpkin Yogurt

Mix equal parts pumpkin puree & greek yogurt. [~¼ – ½ cup]

Stir in ½ – 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix or a blend of ground cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg & cloves.

Sweeten to your liking with maple syrup or other sweetener.

Top with homemade granola, leftover candied pecans or walnuts, or spread over cranberry-walnut toast [my favorite].

Simple, healthy, delicious.

All the things that the day after Thanksgiving calls for.
