Thanksgiving: We are all Pilgrims

I was a little embarrassed this morning when I had to look up the definition of pilgrimage? A long journey or search of great moral significance,spelled out by the ink on the dictionary page. If I were still in elementary school I would tell you a pilgrimage is a collective group of hungry people, putting up with in-laws so they can devour the legs of the fowl they just caught! Insensitive I know, but let me be honest, when I read the definition, I was a little discouraged to see food had little to do with pilgrimage.

Either way I still promote Thanksgiving as a feast! A holiday of epic proportion, where there are always leftovers and second helpings. You can pass me the turkey all day long, in fact, leave it right in front of me, because Thanksgiving dinner is chock full of dishes that can be enjoyed by almost any Interstitial Cystitis sufferer. So if I were you, I would mark this day on your calendar, because during Thanksgiving, you can eat like everyone else!

My Food Style’s Thanksgiving menu is designed to bring the holiday to life. I have focused on the colors, textures, aromas, and the flavors of the season to make certain this Thanksgiving is one to remember! Enjoy all the free recipes!

Scientists have not yet found a cure for IC/PBS, nor can they predict who will respond best to which treatment. Symptoms may disappear with a change in diet or treatments or without explanation...
