Well, we made it through Thanksgiving weekend here in the states! Among all of the wonderful things the holiday’s bring, food is arguably one of the best. But after a weekend of indulging in second (and third) helpings, it feels that the most appropriate thing to do today is to lighten things up, AND in being conscious about our waste, using leftovers is crucial.

The Smile To-Go (a favorite lunch spot here in the Studio) shared a recipe for one of their current holiday dishes – A napa cabbage and turkey salad. The perfect dish to carry you out of your food coma, or, to accompany that last slice of pumpkin pie and put you right back into it.
