Quick note on Thanksgiving to readers of The Lean Saloon.
As the turkey takes on its last few minutes of sun tanning in the oven, I wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Most of us have in our lives the people for whom we’re grateful and the things for which we’re thankful. The first Thanksgiving in November of 1621 was in celebration of the Pilgrim’s survival of hardship, malnutrition and starvation, and also of the kindness of the American Natives for their gifts of food.
Today, on the night of Thanksgiving, we still have many things to give thanks to, including the way American history unfolded itself and all the Americans along the way since 1621… especially those who fought for the freedom for us to sit and enjoy the food on our table tonight, the freedom that gives us the opportunity to make choices in the kind of food we eat the other 364 days of the year.
Remember, each time we sit down at the table to eat, we sit down with that freedom to make choices of what we put into our bodies. For tonight, and for the rest of the year.
Eat well, live well. Happy Thanksgiving.
