How Do You Stay Healthy During the Holidays?

Heaps of turkey (or tofurkey). Stuffing. Sweet potato and marshmallow bakes. Mashed potatoes and gravy. Pie. Pie a la mode. More pie.

With Thanksgiving and winter break quickly approaching, many UCLA students will make their way home to indulge in gluttony way beyond going back for seconds of everything at De Neve.

If you eat it, you will feel not only feel stuffed, but ashamed, and you may proceed to drown yourself in tears and apple cider.

Here’s a playlist to get you drooling and jiving (yes, simultaneously). It features some excellent artists who have written songs with scrumptious titles. Bon appetit!
