Anyone else feeling a little bit softer around the middle post-Thanksgiving food coma?

Actually one of my patients this past week pointed to my stomach asked me if that was my only kid. I mean, he was delirious at the time, but still! I didn’t hold it against him, but it was definitely a wake up call that I probably shouldn’t eat dessert every day of the week. And should eat more salads. It’s just so hard when I get home from a long stressful day and all I want is to reward myself for not strangling someone. Maybe I need to think of some non-food rewards, though. Hmmm.

After a big holiday like Thanksgiving, I don’t like to wallow in the leftovers (unless they’re pie), but strongly prefer to reset by stocking my fridge with a bunch of healthy meals. If you’re like me then you will LOVE this week’s meal plan! There are two main dish salads and three curries (one soup, one chili, one actual curry), so it’s a good one. Enjoy and happy eating!
