Thanksgiving & Holiday Eating Tips

With Thanksgiving just around the corner. Focus on the Family has come up with some tips to help you make Thanksgiving dinner more healthy and enjoyable.

Here are just a few healthy eating tips compliments of Focus on the Family. These would apply to the holidays as well as Thanksgiving:
  • Provide nutritious appetizers and dishes. Allow guests and family to nibble on vegetables before dinner. Also, you might be surprised that many side dishes are quite delicious even without gobs of canned cream soups and loads of carbs and fat.
  • Don't wait until dinner to eat. A healthy breakfast and snacks before the big meal can help keep you from overindulging.
  • Stay hydrated. Drink plenty of water before and during the feast. It will help you feel full and replaces high calorie drinks.
  • Have some sweets—in moderation. Healthy eating doesn't mean you'll never again eat anything you like. But it does involve not eating half a pie. Sample the sweets, just don't gorge on them.
Special thanks to the good folks at Focus on the Family for these timely Thanksgiving tips.    For more Thanksgiving reading, check out the Focus on the Family article Seven Days of Gratitude
