A Happy, Healthier Thanksgiving

A common story about Thanksgiving involved unrestrained feasting, followed by drooping heads and intermittent snoring on the couch. We usually blame the tryptophan - an amino acid found in turkey - for the post-dinner nap attack. It's true that tryptophan can have a calming effect, but complete unconsciousness is not a typical reaction. The more likely explanation is that the drowsiness after Thanksgiving dinner is a product of a sugar crash. Turkey is just the innocent bystander. The real culprit is the marshmallow covered sweet potatoes; the super sugar saturated cranberry sauce and the dessert buffet. There is a better way.
