Due to the upcoming holiday, I wanted to give you some sort of healthy tip about what not to eat on Thanksgiving…but let’s be honest, we all know we will be eating everything there is to eat that day. I could rattle off the usual tricks everyone already knows…don’t sample the food while you’re cooking or baking it, don’t socialize near the appetizers, don’t use gravy, don’t eat more than one dessert, don’t drink alcohol…so many don’ts! I once read a tip that said to take your nail polish off before you bake, so you won’t be tempted to dip your finger in the batter since it would taste like nail polish remover. That’s a bit extreme.
So let’s focus on all the DO’s for this Turkey Day:
DO eat your favorite foods, all of them
DO pick more than one dessert! (just make sure they’re sample portions)
DO eat until you’re full, then stop
DO put aside a plate of your favorites to take home
DO enjoy the time you spend with your loved ones
Personally, this is my favorite holiday. I won’t be holding back on the treats, and I’m even more excited for leftovers the next day! What are your Thanksgiving plans?
