The holiday season is around the corner. That means time with family and friends, reflecting on all that you have to be thankful for and food. Lots and lots of food.

For some (all of us), it’s a favorite for this time of year. But, as we know, it doesn’t come without a price. The giant turkey leg, mashed potatoes smothered in gravy, honey glazed ham and a generous slice of pie are all great choices right up until you hit your favorite running path. 

It’s not all bad. The Riverside Reindeer is here to help you kick off a healthy holiday season and squash any calorie-induced nightmares.
