Walk Off Your Easter Dinner


Bunnies for EasterMany of us eat more than we’d like at holiday dinners. Sometimes you just need to let go and enjoy.  Last night at our Passover seder, for example, I took seconds and thirds on the baby artichokes.  (They were, delicious, Mike!).  

After the meal I felt way too full.  So Mike and I took  Jane Kokernak’s advice and went for a post dinner walk to gently work off some of the food.  As Jane pointed out, unlike the winter holidays (Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, Valentine’s Day), Passover and Easter usually fall in the spring, so the weather allows you to take a walk with your family after the meal.  

We wish you a great Easter dinner.  And don’t forget that you don’t have to sit around the TV and nap off the food. Take a walk!

Great idea! Ever since I got a CGMS I was able to see the impact of post-meal light exercise and I realized that the advice to take a walk after a meal is right on the mark. I can re-direct an after meal rise with a 15 minute walk. Amazingly easy.
