Turkey vs Trimmings

Many people report feeling drowsy after eating a Thanksgiving meal. Turkey often gets blamed because it contains tryptophan, an amino acid that can have a somnolent, or drowsy, effect. But studies suggest it’s the carbohydrate-rich sides and desserts that aid tryptophan entry into the brain. In other words, eating turkey without the trimmings could prevent that post-Thanksgiving energy lull.




Personally, I think I’d rather skip the turkey and just have the trimmings in that case, what about you?
