Additionally, follow these simple steps to enjoy Thanksgiving while staying on track with your health goals:

  1. Start your day with balanced breakfast. Don’t skip eating before the big meal. The plan to “save room” could cause your blood sugar to dip (hello hangry).
  2. Be active! Take a morning or evening walk with family and burn off those extra calories.
  3. Stay hydrated – drink plenty of water.
  4. Look for homemade. There are so many hidden ingredients in store-bought foods (trans fats, sugars, refined flour, etc.). Try to avoid pre-made processed goods when you can and make your dishes with real ingredients (see recipes above!)
