What's on the menu for Thanksgiving? I'm doing my shopping today. I'm only cooking for three this year. My husband prefers ham, but Gwen and I want turkey. Anyway, I'm getting ready to explore all the healthy recipes that are filling my inbox...lots of options from Sparkpeople, Eating Well, and Hungry Girl.
Gwen wants to make a pumpkin roll. I think we'll use the full fat/sugar recipe for that and I'll just manage my portion. If we baked more, I'd tinker, but I'm just not up for it.
For sides, I think I'm going to do a roasted root vegetable medley...can't get enough of those! I love stuffing and the green bean casserole. I have to decide if I can manage the temptation though.
Holidays are so tough! What strategies do you have in place to avoid over indulging? I'm planning to move my feet before and after I eat by working out
to Leslie Sanson or walking around My Big Block that's 4 miles. I'm also going to fuel up on water and freggies..giving myself lots of healthy options to avoid the guilt.
Enjoy the celebrations, everyone!
