Thanksgiving Dinner Doesn’t need to Cause Discomfort #PinkRelief #ad

Our Canadian Thanksgiving is this weekend and I just cannot wait! I have already started my shopping and look forward to cooking for my family. But as I sit here and plan my Thanksgiving menu, I am very aware of the stomach issues some of my family have. My son and I love to eat, but certain foods seem to cause so much discomfort and so many issues for us. Thanksgiving in Canada is October 10th, so it will be here before you know it. I am excited as all of my kids will be here and we will feast!

Our holiday menu usually includes a turkey, stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, roasted veggies, rolls, cranberries, and some sort of pie. Most often nobody can agree on what to have for dessert so I have a few different pies—pumpkin, apple and cherry rhubarb with whipped cream or ice cream. The dairy, gravy, and rich foods are always tasty but can cause upset stomach, or worse. The last thing you want is someone not feeling great after dinner. Having to leave early or spending family time in the bathroom is no way to spend this day. There is a solution that many of us already have in our home and have had for years. A solution that will allow you and your guests to enjoy all the yummy feast plus relief for the consequences.



Pepto-Bismol is here to help with Thanksgiving tummy issues. Pepto-Bismol provides 5-symptom relief of heartburn, indigestion, nausea, upset stomach, and diarrhea—all the things one can experience after a big meal. Sometimes the food is not the issue; stresses like travelling or hosting can also cause stomach upset. Pepto-Bismol relieves upset stomach and is an antidiarrheal product. It can be taken any time you are experiencing diarrhea or an upset stomach due to overindulgence in food and drink, including heartburn, indigestion, nausea and gas. When using the product, remember to always follow the directions. You shouldn’t take more than eight doses in a 24-hour period when using Pepto-Bismol or four doses in a 24-hour period when using Pepto-Bismol Extra Strength. Available at most grocery stores, drug stores, and retail outlets. You can find Pepto-Bismol in chewables, caplets or liquid form.



I like to keep the caplets in my purse just in case as they are our preferred form to take. You never know when symptoms may be triggered and treating them right away is important. Pepto-Bismol is effective for quick relief of symptoms. No matter who you invite, what you cook or where you may go for Thanksgiving, make sure you have some Pepto-Bismol on hand for anything that may come your way! Having your guests stay as long as possible and enjoying quality family time is what this time of year is all about. I know I will be stocking up!

  1. I have taken this stuff before. It seems to work well! I will probably use it again for Thanksgiving! (How can it be this close to Thanksgiving).

  2. I’m a huge believer in Pepto. I give myself permission to be a total hog on Thanksgiving and Christmas. If it weren’t for Pepto, I wouldn’t be able to do that.
