Podcast: Navigating Thanksgiving with Addie Dulaney Majnaric, RDN

Welcome and Thank you for listening. Next week is Thanksgiving and chances are you will be asked to cook or eat food that is not plant based. It may be a vegetable that is prepared with dairy or meat or oil. You may be asked why you do not want to eat turkey or other “natural” foods of the holidays.
Today, Addie and I share what we eat on Thanksgiving and how to navigate around some common questions. Even the veteran vegan can get overwhelmed by the rapid fire questions of nonvegans at the family get together. This can leave you doubting your own choices and convictions and lead to errors in choices sometimes to just get along.
I do not believe one should have to compromise their health to “just get along.” The reality is that you are not only compromising your health but giving justification to others poor choices. When you go with the masses, you are saying in fact your choice does not matter, and your health does not matter. You are sending the message to yourself that your health is not worth the effort.
We believe you can have a happy AND healthy holiday season with a little attention to detail. What you eat this holiday season will affect your body for not only days but years to come.
Don’t miss the part where we discuss why it is not to late for anyone to begin running., episode Sept 28 episode.
Addie and I wish you a very Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving. We encourage you to eat a plant based, colorful plate and to keep your body moving.

    I look forward to listen weekly and always learn something, your podcasts confirm I’m doing things right. At 66, although never overweight and no red flag using the standard measures of heart disease I felt like I was getting old. I watched my husband die from heart disease and over eating horrible foods.
    So here I am running around with my Grandchildren and enjoying every day. I think one thing that is so so different, my happiness factor, I smile and feel so much pleasure from eating from the earth and moving my body. I’m in SFL and I look forward to meeting you in March.
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your wonderful family and staff.
