Nichole’s Thanksgiving Healthy Eating Tips. . .
We all know this next week is all about family, fun, and of course food. I love how many races I see happening Thanksgiving morning, but let’s be real Thanksgiving is not about the races, it is all about the food….and the family.
1) Don’t skip out on meals earlier in the day
2) Start your day with a sweat session
3) Watch your portion sizes
4) Drink mostly water. Limit alcohol and sugary drinks
5) Fill your plate with salads and veggies
6) Watch your add-ons (gravy, butter, salad dressing, cheese, etc.)
7) Eat slowly
8) Give away leftovers
9) Go for a walk after dinner
10) Enjoy the day! There is so much more to today than what goes in your mouth. Enjoy time with family, old traditions, make new traditions, and strive to finish the day feeling good inside and out!
Ruthie’s Healthy Recipe. . .
Horseradish Mashed Potatoes are a must try for your holiday feasting this year!
Add a little bit of kick to holiday feasting with our Horseradish Mashed Potatoes, they take mashed potatoes to the next level. You’ll be pleasantly surprised at the tasty addition horseradish makes in this classic side dish!
Horseradish Mashed Potatoes have a bit of butter, half and half, and then most of the moisture comes from reserved water from boiling. It’s a great trick to keep them moist and fluffy without adding a ton of calories! My grandmother used to put a cube or two of butter and lots of cream into her mashed potatoes- they were tasty but holy-moly SO loaded!
Horseradish Mashed Potatoes are a tasty twist for your holiday feasting! Enjoy.
Happy Fit Friday!!
Much Love and Peace~
