Monday, November 21, 2011 on the Doctor Ira Breite Show on Sirius XM 81: Doctor Radio!

Thanksgiving is in the air here in New York City. The crowds are back and the kids are smelling a four day weekend. I am getting my gravy recipe ready for the big day.

Which brings us to the first topic of our show. How do you do Thanksgiving right if you or one of your guests have allergies, celiac disease, or gluten sensitivity? Join me and Rachel Begun, MS, RD as we talk about just that! We will also be talking about any digestive issues you may have in light of the excessive amounts of food most of us (including me) tend to eat.

I heard on TV this weekend that the original Thanksgiving consisted of three days of gluttonous eating by a bunch of mostly men. What really happened? Join me and Mary Gunderson, who brings her practice of paleocuisineology(R) with a Thanksgiving twist to the beginning of our second hour. Mary will highlight the meats and veggies at our Thanksgiving table that are modern as well as ancient traditions in North America.
Mary writes about food history and culture, health and wellbeing at and and is the author of The Food Journal of Lewis & Clark: Recipes for an Expedition (History Cooks(R) 2003) and other food and history books.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any questions on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
