New Thanksgiving Traditions You Should Try

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving from College Chevrolet Buick!

Thanksgiving is all about family traditions, but if you’re sick of doing the same old thing, here are some new Thanksgiving traditions for the family looking to mix things up.

 

Make a Big Breakfast

Who wants to wait for dinner? Tide yourself over until the big meal later by indulging in a bigger-than-usual breakfast, all made from scratch.

 

Have Some “Me Time”

Some people get exhausted interacting with family all day. Before the big dinner, take some time to yourself to read a book, watch your favorite show, or go to a park.

 

Have Everyone Write Down Their “Thanks” – On the Table!

Instead of a tablecloth, try covering the table in butcher paper, then hand out pens to everyone. Have everyone write down what they’re thankful for during dinner.

 

Take a Walk as a Family

Now that your belly is full of delicious food, have everybody burn off the calories before dessert by going for a walk together.

 

Skype With Faraway Loved Ones

Is your family out-of-town? Use a program like Skype or Google Hangouts to get in touch during dinnertime!

breakfastWhether or not you’re getting up for school or work in the mornings this summer, it’s still vital to eat a healthy breakfast. In fact, studies repeatedly show that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Here’s a short list of summer breakfast ideas to plan your next shopping trip around:

  • Parfait: All you need is your favorite, low-fat yogurt, some oatmeal, and assorted fruit to make this dish; don’t forget to drizzle some honey on top!
  • Quiche: Though an entire pie-shaped quiche is easy to make in advance, you can quickly make a quiche-for-one in under five minutes.
  • Scrambled eggs: Simple beat an egg and pop it into the microwave for quick scrambled eggs; you can even add cheese and veggies.
  • Oatmeal: There’s a reason that oatmeal has always been a classic; add your favorite fruits and spices to make it perfect.
  • Smoothie: Whether your smoothies are yogurt-based, ice-based, or banana-based, the quick and healthy potential combinations are endless.
