I think one of the best things about hosting the Thanksgiving feast is having days of leftovers! Of course, I like leftovers; some people don’t. The trick can be taking the leftover ingredients and turning them into a new dish. In this podcast, we talk with nutritionist and natural foods chef Alana Sugar about using up all of that valuable food in new and interesting ways.

Thanksgiving’s around the corner, and with it comes the many excesses of feasting. While you’re enjoying the occasion to visit with family and friends, whether at your home or theirs, it’s a great opportunity to remind everyone about recycling, reusing and composting (but probably not a good idea to be a total pest about it with any unenlightened relatives!). For example, at your home you can make sure your guests know where the recycling bins are located and any specific household recycling procedures they can participate in.
