Jay, some times I pass out sleepy anyway so I might as well enjoy some Thanksgiving dinner in moderation!! I shared this article on Facebook for other friends/family!

the intent was not to suggest you not enjoy the Thanksgiving meal, just thought it would be of interest.

It's great that you've posted this article because my mom (God bless her) believed that L-tryptophan was the chemical in turkey that was responsible for the sleepy feeling that you get aka serotonin..she also mentioned red wine as a culprit too! But then again whether turkey actually contains that or not, one thing is for certain: After I celebrate Thanksgiving 2012, I'll feel good & tired more often than before..especially since this will be my daughter's very first Thanksgiving. Thank you very much for posting this article!

I always wondered about the theory about the turkey. We are serving duck, turkey and rabbit this year, and I bet we will all have the "sluggish" brain after anyway. But then we will go outside and play some horseshoes and then some dominoes or something at night. Our day goes all day, and that always makes the brain tired....needless to say, I won't be in any lines on Black Friday.
