Thanksgiving. A time for getting together with family, giving thanks…and eating. From deep-fried turkeys to the abundance of pies and everything in between, Thanksgiving dinner can be filled with pitfalls. While it’s certainly a good day to indulge a little, you can use these three tips to make your day of dining a little healthier.
- Eat normally. It’s tempting to skip meals to “leave room” for more Thanksgiving dinner, but this is not a good idea. Eat breakfast and lunch, as usual, so you aren’t over-hungry when dinner is served. It’ll keep you from over-eating – and your blood sugar will stay steady throughout the day so you won’t get crabby and can enjoy the day.
- Serve fresh fruit. Keep a bowl of fresh fruit in season out on the table for your guests to enjoy. It makes a beautiful centerpiece, as well as offering a healthy snack to enjoy instead of dips and chips while waiting for dinner to be served.
- Eat and be merry. Go ahead and enjoy your favorite dishes. Have that piece of pie…just don’t eat the whole pie.
