Anticipating the Holidays, Prepping for Success
Saturday, November 17, 2012
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!
