How can you stay healthy with American tradition?
Healthy Thanksgiving Swaps!!!
Staying in can tempt us to overeat and reach for those tried-and-true comfort foods this Thanksgiving. Sometimes healthy swaps for food at holiday meals can be a challenge, but with these four tips, you can still enjoy the great taste of rich holiday food, and feel great about it afterwards.
1.Consider Your Source for Fruits and Vegetables
There are many resources out there about canned vs. fresh vs. frozen fruits and vegetables. The biggest takeaways are:
- Avoid canned foods that are in a syrup with added sugars
- Fresh fruits and vegetables are the best right after purchase
2.Remember That Alternative Does Not Equal Healthy
It’s a common misconception that shopping at health-conscious stores, or grabbing foods labeled “gluten-free” or “vegan” will make for a healthy alternative to traditional favorites. These alternatives can still contain high amounts of processed sugar, salt, and carbohydrates. Tale as old as time – don’t forget to read your labels!
3.Supplements, Supplements, Supplements
There are several different supplementation options before, during, and even after a meal. Begin with helping your gut and perhaps try an enzyme with your meal to help reduce the chances of bloating. And if you do overindulge, try out something like Atrantil to help you decompress.
4.Listen to Your Body – Be Mindful
You’ve likely heard about mindfulness, but sometimes it’s easier said than done – especially when surrounded by delicious food! One of the biggest and simplest ideas that we may forget is to simply stop and drink some water before that second or third serving. Grab that second serving because you want to, and because you’ve decided your body can take it.
