Food for thought: Thanksgiving by the numbers

Thanksgiving is a time to give thanks for all our blessings and spend time with loved ones.  About 46 million people have traveled to celebrate this holiday with their family and friends. And right now, Instagram is already filled with #thanksgiving and #thanksgivingdinner photos. Aside from the gratitude we celebrate, Thanksgiving is also a celebration of food. It is every foodie’s favorite holiday. When else can you devour delicious food without feeling guilty?

This year, 91 percent of all Americans will eat turkey, and on average, they will consume about 3lbs of the meat. Here is a fun infographic on the facts and figures of our Thanksgiving.
