Cook Traditional…Don’t Get Laid

I’m not a big fan of turkey.  My husband is a vegetarian.  Which means we don’t do traditional Thanksgiving.  But there’s another reason why you may want to avoid the typical Thanksgiving fare if there’s any plan for sexual activity later in the evening.

It’s well documented that Turkey has the sleep inducing amino acid L-tryptophan.  All science aside, we’ve all experienced this feeling after a big meal that is too full of carbs, fat, sugar and/or tryptophan.   My people call it the “itis,” and my husband refers to it as the food coma-which promptly sends you to the couch, and hopefully you make it there before you pass out. 

Today’s piece is more than saying to you, “Don’t eat a Thanksgiving meal if you want to get laid.”  You can do what every other boring ass article advises about “surviving” Thanksgiving and just watch your portion size.  I say avoid the traditional stuff altogether, just like us and make a favorite dish.  Hell, I say toss out the traditional thinking entirely this holiday!  Wake up when you’re ready, don’t kill yourself to leave at an overly early hour and fully enjoy your loved ones.  And don’t spend more than two hours in the kitchen (I won’t), by making something different from all of those heavy carb/sugar/fat recipes that go hand in hand with the holidays.  I’m making two types of lasagna with roasted vegetables, wheat-free pasta and fresh ingredients (recipe to follow tomorrow), waking up at a late hour, staying in my pajamas until I am ready to change, doing minimal dishes, and falling asleep because I want to, not because my body is forcing me to.

And when you’re up for any other physical activity that may come with your newly found energy from avoiding the typical grub, good on ya.
