Have you stocked up on the turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie? Are you doing your stomach-stretching exercises in preparation for The Big Meal on Thursday? Or perhaps you are one of the lucky ones who gets to spread the eating fest across two or more households in one day.

As you are lying on the couch, dazed from your l-tryptophan overload and too full to think of exercising, try spending a few minutes exercising your brain and giving some hungry kids a bit to eat as well. Engage the family in some friendly competition to see who has the best vocabulary and who can donate the most free rice. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, visit www.freerice.com. This website has a very addicting vocabulary challenge game, and with each level you beat, the sponsors will donate rice through the UN World Food Program to help end world hunger. In just a little over a year, players have donated over 51 billion grains of rice, and improved their vocabulary in the process.

Freerice.com – It’s fun, it’s free, it’s for a great cause -and you don’t even have to get up off of the couch!
