BYU’s student newspaper recently broke down the calories of what it's calling a “traditional Mormon Thanksgiving" meal.
The Daily Universe, the student newspaper at the Provo school, put together a helpful guide in an article titled “How many calories are in a Mormon Thanksgiving dinner?”
The Universe used “Mormon recipes” to create a Thanksgiving dinner plan that clocks in at 2,925 calories.
"Thanksgiving is a time for family, friends, and Grandma’s traditional pumpkin pie recipe that might just have you rolling out of her house in a wheelchair," according to the article. "It might be you who feels like the stuffed turkey after eating a Thanksgiving meal, and we wanted to find out just how much that show-stopping stuffing really weighs you down."
Head over to the Universe’s website to see its breakdown.
One glance at the breakdown shows that there’s not much of a difference between the “traditional Mormon Thanksgiving” and a regular Thanksgiving meal.
The Book of Mormon does make references to the phrase “thanksgiving” several times.
