1.Enjoy your friends and family.
While Thanksgiving certainly is a holiday about eating, food is just part of the festivities. It’s a time to acknowledge all that we have to be thankful for, and to appreciate the people we care about. Studies have shown that social connections are essential for health and longevity. So do your best to put your petty grievances aside, relax and set the stage for a joy-filled, low-stress holiday season.
2. Roundify your Thanksgiving menu.
If you’re cooking, be sure to prepare plenty of nutrient-filled, anti-aging foods for your feast. If you are a guest supplying food, bring a healthy dish or two. Consider serving a humanely raised, organic, free range heritage turkey.
3. Eat without over-stuffing yourself.
Eat slowly, and enjoy every single bite. Before going for seconds, remember that one of the best things about Thanksgiving is the leftovers!
4. Drink water to keep hydrated.
This will help your digestion and can even keep you from overeating. Limit the adult beverages to one or two, and opt for wine rather than hard liquor.
5. No guilt allowed if you pig out!
Guilt gets you nowhere, so stop, unbuckle your belt, and enjoy your company. Then wake up the next day and take a walk, go for a run, jump on a rebounder, skate outside or in a rink, workout in a gym or any other activity that revs up your heart and sweatiness. Then have a turkey sandwich for lunch, and be thankful for everything around you.
1. Show and tell your baby about different fruits and vegetables.
The Round Lady suggests showing your baby the Round shape of healthy foods, so your baby can learn to spot healthy food by its roundness.
2. Talk about the food your baby is eating.
3. Know that your baby’s likes and dislikes can change daily.
4. Make sure your baby gets a balanced diet. Do this with plenty of variety.
5. Keep from rushing mealtimes. Let yourself feel relaxed. Enjoy the moment.
6. Eat healthy in front of your baby. Your baby will do what your baby sees.
7. Offer your baby water to drink, and do this every meal.
8. Create a regular schedule of eating for breakfast, lunch, snacks and dinner.
9. Never make your baby eat something your baby hates.
Growing up, I was forced to eat Lima beans a lot. To this day I consider them evil. Having to eat them made me hate them with a passion. So no forcing!
10. Turn mealtimes into an eating and talking only event. Leave your distractions elsewhere. Enjoy the time!

Calories Burned By Rebounding
Rebounding is a less stressful means of removing body fat, while simultaneously firming every inch of your body. By simply running in place on a rebounder, you can easily burn calories. According to your body weight, the table on the left shows you how many calories, when running on the rebounder, can be burned for a specified amount of time.
Rebounding vs. Jogging
By jumping on a well-made rebounder, you will feel invigorated and filled with a sense of well-being. This means that you might want to adjust your daily plans as you enjoy how rebounding makes it easier for you to work longer, sleep better, and feel less tense and nervous.
You will also need to grow accustomed to living in a tighter body, because the action of bouncing up and down against gravity, without trauma to the musculoskeletal system, is one of the most beneficial aerobic, fat-burning, muscle-tightening, immune-enhancing, full body exercises ever developed.
Rebounder Routines A-Coming!
Stay tuned to learn more about this very Round exercise that combined with a healthy Round way of eating will give you that toned, slim and sexy body that everyone deserves.
RoundTV will be posting Rebounder Routines that anybody can follow. This will be a new series that will start in June and continue through the Summer!

This is the third video in the 3 part series, A Day of Healthy Eating. This last video shows you a tasty Round dinner, Hamburger Eggplant Circles on Confetti, fit for a cold and stormy night — all while being good for you and of course made out of a variety of delicious and colorful Round foods.
Note: This dinner video was shot during my previous life, like breakfast, while lunch came from my new life, since I lost my lunch video in the move and had to re-shoot it.

Hamburger Eggplant Circles on Confetti
This is so simple that you barely need a recipe!
- Broil or BBQ a hamburger. One for each person
- Broil or BBQ a sliced (into circles) eggplant. Lightly brush the eggplant circles with Extra Virgin olive oil and sprinkle with your favorite spice like garlic salt or thyme. One eggplant will feed two people.
- Cut an artichoke in half and boil it for 30 minutes. 1/2 for each person.
- Mix together 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a squeeze of lemon juice. 1 tablespoon for each person.
- Cut Radicchio and Napa cabbage into confetti-like strips, and mix together in a bowl. Cut as much as you like, this is great filler and you will learn to love how you can stretch out any meal with this confetti combination.
Plate Your Meal
On a plate, place a heaping handful of the confetti mixture. Top with 2 or 3 (depending on how big they are) eggplant circles, and then top that with the hamburger. Place half an artichoke on a small plate with a side of the mustard dip in a tiny dish. You may also want an empty dish for the leaves as you eat your artichoke. Serve with ice water, and add some lemon juice for extra flavor.
You will notice that the hot eggplant circles and hamburger wilt the cabbage and make it taste warm and homey. In the summertime, you can BBQ the hamburger and eggplant circles, then stack it on a bun with the cabbage mixture — and a wide smear of the mustard dip. It may seem different, but what have you got to lose trying it?
