Healthy Thanksgiving Tips
- Don’t let anyone deep fry your turkey. Baking is the healthiest option when it comes to clean eating foods. Stick with the white meat of the turkey, and you’ll easily support your healthy eating habits.
- Go easy on the gravy. If you have the option, just pass on it altogether and consider using cranberry sauce drizzled over your mashed potatoes to experience a sweet and salty Thanksgiving treat.
- Remember portion sizes for your meal. It’s easy to go crazy, but there’s no need to overdo it. There will always be leftovers!
