As you connect with family, friends and in-laws over this Thanksgiving holiday and weekend, keep these five things in mind… it might just save your sanity.
Stress abounds during the holiday season. It could be physical stress — your mind and body are stretched thin with the extra obligations and responsibilities this time of year. Or it could be emotional stress — the emotional pain of family rifts and disagreements, painful memories from the past or loneliness because of loss. Whether you are physically or emotionally stressed, you might turn to food for comfort. Emotional eating happens when you eat certain foods or overeat to soothe negative emotions or reduce your stress level.
The good news is there are many benefits to clean and fresh holiday spices, as long as you don't drown them in dairy, gluten, refined sugar, and hydrogenated fats.
