2. Light, Healthy Breakfast

While some people like to "save their appetite" for the Thanksgiving feast, others swear by a light breakfast early in the morning. Begin your day with a gentle meal such as fresh fruit, or crepes, perhaps, to help keep you going until dinnertime. Eating in the morning can also help stave off those "hangry" feelings on a day filled with all the pleasures and stressors of family. If you plan to do a lot of cooking, a light meal early in the day will help you keep your energy up. Families with small children may be making breakfast for the little ones anyway -- why not create your own traditional Thanksgiving Breakfast with pumpkin pancakes or fresh harvest apples?
