Weekly Bits: It's the Holiday Season

Thanksgiving is over, but the holidays continue for several more weeks! On this week's menu of reader comments: turkey stuffing, potato swaps and mindful eating tips for your next celebration.

"I like to stuff the bird with aromatics and citrus. And I baste with a citrus jam combo. It gives a slightly sweet flavor I really enjoy." --Julo

"Instead of french fries, make sweet potato fries: Cut sweet potatoes in strips and bake on a shallow pan." --Connie

"Apple cider vinegar is excellent for heartburn/indigestion! Take a tablespoon or so with some water -- make sure it's apple cider vinegar and not white distilled. My husband and I and other family members have done this for years." --Nancy

"The best tip I've learned is from a friend who puts down her fork between mouthfuls -- don't pick it up again until you have completely finished your mouthful and said a few words to the company. When I felt full, I was shocked to see how much food was still left on my plate when I followed her example!" --Helen

"Even though the Thanksgiving celebration centers around the food, only eat what is special...the foods that you get once a year. If the menu item is something that you prepare throughout the year, it's not really special, is it?" --Kmo0218
