Tips for good Nutrition during Thanksgiving
• Start the day off with a freshly pressed juice. Include seasonal fruits and vegetables including cranberries, beets, celery and spinach for a nutrient rich green juice.
• Drink your calories. Enjoy a soup as an appetizer. Opt for a broth based soup rather than a cream based soup.
• Skip the stuffing and load up on vegetable side dishes. Lightly steamed or roasted vegetables with a little olive or coconut oil is delicious and nutritious.
• If you’re having dessert, opt for one that has natural sugars and is high in fibre e.g. sweet potato energy bites or try a pumpkin smoothie with nutmeg and cinnamon.
