Taking the Guesswork out of Thanksgiving Eating
We all know how difficult it is to eat healthy during holidays, and thanksgiving is no exception.
To help you stay healthy this thanksgiving – and enjoy your turkey dinner without adding inches to your waistline – have these tips and tricks to keep in mind.
5 Healthy Eating Tips for Thanksgiving
1. Don’t Starve Yourself All Day – Everybody’s done it, but the problem with starving yourself all day in anticipation of a big dinner is that you binge when it finally comes. You’re more likely to pile up your plate and take seconds, or even thirds, because you’ve psyched yourself up all day. Eat regularly and healthy through the day, and your dinner experience will be a little less indulgent.
2. Make a 2/3 Veggie Rule – When the food is finally served, go for veggies first, and make a rule that about 2/3 of your plate is vegetables. Then you can go for your turkey, potatoes, and any other carbs. With all the delicious thanksgiving veggie dishes out there, this should be easy. It just takes a little commitment.
