Every December since my cross-country move from Oklahoma to New York on that June day 5 1/2 years ago, I am very fortunate to be able to fly home to Oklahoma and visit my loved ones for a Christmas visit. It is a time for treasured memories made with loved ones, but lengthy air travel and lots of road miles driven paired with a hectic schedule and holiday celebration overeating with menus overflowing with rich and sometimes spicy foods can catch up with you very fast, says the voice of experience.
Beginning with the airport food you encounter along the journey, no matter how you plan to avoid certain types of foods, certain symptoms from your body being thrown out of whack from the travel rush can cause discomfort and made the rest of your travel miserable if you are not prepared. I have found a tried-and-true travel sidekick to help me during the holiday hurry with whatever digestive issue comes my way with IMODIUM®.

This recipe is my favorite go-to for incorporating Meatless Monday into the holidays with a creamy pumpkin penne dish.
"Creamy Pumpkin Penne"
1 (12 oz.) package penne rigate pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped oregano
- 2 cups fresh pumpkin, pureed OR 1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin puree
- 1/2 garlic clove, minced
- 1/2 cup half-and-half
- 1/3 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
- 1 tablespoon white vinegar
- Optional garnish: chopped oregano
In pasta-size cooking pot, add water and 1 teaspoon salt. Bring salted water to a boil and add pasta, cooking pasta according to directions on package. Reserve 2 cups of the pasta water; drain pasta and set aside. In same pasta pot, add olive oil and oregano. Cook on medium heat for 1 minute.Carefully watching pot to avoid hot oil spattering, add pumpkin puree, minced garlic, half-and-half, Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, vinegar and 1 cup reserved pasta water to pot. Stir until well-blended and heated on medium heat for through 2- 3 minutes, stirring after each minute. If sauce is too thick, add 1 teaspoon of remaining reserved pasta water until sauce reaches desired consistency. When ready to serve pasta in individual dishes, pour 1/2 cup of sauce over pasta. Garnish each before serving by sprinkling, if desired, with 1/2 teaspoon of oregano.
