Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday. Time with family, football, basketball and of course food! Try and bring healthy habits to your Thanksgiving this year!
Butter, chicken stock, brown sugar, marshmallows ... and the list goes on for "not-so-healthy" ingedients on the Thanksgiving menu. And, that doesn't account for the quantity of food intake.
It is important during the holiday season to maintain a heart-healthy diet. The tricks of using a smaller plate size and not going back for seconds are great tools to use. One Green Planet has 6 Tips for a Heart-Healthy Thanksgiving that are good reminders for Thanksgiving festivities.
Also, get inspired by the football you're watching and go outside and throw the pigskin around. Enjoy a family walk before AND after you eat your turkey, stuffing, rolls, mashed potatoes, pumpkin pie, cranberry sauce, gravy...
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving and stay heart-healthy!
