It’s that time of year. To eat, to feast, to experience love and regret on every forkful - with gravy.
So what are your plans for Thanksgiving? Have a scheduled cheat day? Do legs in the AM? Stick with lower carbs? Try to gain 10 lbs in one day?
I’m going to do some fasted cardio in the morning from 7-8, and have a small breakfast (black coffee, shake, fruit) afterwards, then in the afternoon the gluttony begins. Here’s the menu
Braised Turkey Thighs
Smoked Turkey Breast
Mashed Potatoes with Gravy
Roasted Sweet Potatoes and Pecans
Brussels with Bacon and Hazelnuts
Wild Rice with Butternut Squash and Kale
Butter Lettuce, Pear, and Apple Salad
Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole
Hard Apple Cider and Bourbon Cocktails
Strategy for the day after is a couple of long walks and naps, enjoy leftovers, then back to normal eating and workouts on Saturday.
