    It’s finally November and many who love food are already thinking about that Thanksgiving dinner and all of their favorite dishes. Dietetic intern Katelyn Alexander wants to give you some important tips from relieving digestion after that big meal what to do with those leftovers afterward. Shea also shares why orange-colored foods are so important to our immunity support. To learn more, read her article November Is Here! Did Someone Say Thanksgiving?

Have you ever wondered which foods will help you memorize everything you need to know for your next exam?
