Traditionally, the turkey is the most expensive item on the Thanksgiving dinner table, and the price of turkey has fallen thanks to a sharp reduction in cases of avian influenza. But if you replace the turkey with something like a standing rib roast, you should plan on some sticker shock with beef prices up +10% from last year. Yet, for the most frugal of shoppers, consider a main course of scrambled eggs since eggs dropped a whopping -22% from last year. Sounds like breakfast for dinner, folks...pass the gravy! Happy Thanksgiving, everyone.

Incorporating a stretching routine, even in as little as 10 minutes per day, can offer powerful health benefits that include mitigating chronic pain, improving range of motion, and reducing joint stiffness. Stretching can increase your flexibility, help prevent injuries, improve posture, and elongate muscles. It can also benefit your mental capabilities such as relaxing your mind, centering your breathing, and allowing for a more peaceful sleep, especially if you remove distractions and focus on the present. Stretching can be dynamic, meaning a movement-based type of stretching that uses the muscles themselves to bring about a stretch or static which is a basic stretch such as holding a pose for several seconds and not moving. Start slow and build up over time so that you do not cause pain or injury. Definitely consult with an expert like a trainer, if you are unsure how to start.
