What To Do With Leftover Turkey?!?

Curry Turkey Salad-5067The week of the best day of the year has arrived: Thanksgiving, also known as the official start date of a month long of feasting before New Year’s resolutions to go to the gym every day begin. At least that’s what the average American’s final few weeks of each year tend to look like. But why? Why not strike a balance.

That’s what this month’s blog post on my mom’s blog is all about… the 80/20 rule that says if you eat well 80% of the time, you are free to indulge 20% of the time. And indulge doesn’t mean binge! Find out more over at the blog

And also check out the amazing Curried Turkey Salad with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes recipe! It is the perfect way to strike a balance and nourish your body after a Thanksgiving feast. Get the recipe here!
