Easy Thanksgiving Tips to Save Calories


Easy Thanksgiving Tips to Save Calories

  • Alternate your beverage choices

Swap one cocktail for water during your Thanksgiving dinner.This will not only help you save calories, but this swap can help you stay hydrated without feeling the effects of a hangover the next day.

  • Don’t forget to eat breakfast

Start a healthy Thanksgiving with a filling bountiful breakfast like hot whole-grain cereal and an egg-white omelet brimming with veggies.

  • Bring your own healthy dish to share

Don’t be afraid to call your host and ask what they are planning on serving for Thanksgiving dinner. If you find that many of the dishes on the menu are unhealthy, offer to bring a healthy dish instead.

Some ideas include a cauliflower mash, roasted Brussels sprouts, and butternut mac and cheese.

  • Devise a strategy

It’s important to devise a strategy during your Thanksgiving dinner. If you have a sweet tooth, plan for it. If a taste of chocolate satisfies you, it’s worth enjoying it. However, if one taste sends you lusting for a lot more, offer to bring your own healthy dessert.

  • Divide your plate well

It’s important to divide your plate well. Fill your plate half with vegetables, one quarter with white turkey meat, and the rest with a healthy starch (think corn on the cob or a baked potato)
