Season of Sugar – Part II Thanksgiving

November 8, 2012


By:  Coach Maria – Salus Nutritionist & Food Expert

Thanksgiving brings families and friends together to celebrate the blessings we have in our life.  This celebration, although filled with good company and good tasting food; can leave one feeling stuffed, bloated and not-so-comfortable.

A typical Thanksgiving menu might include turkey, mashed potatoes with gravy, stuffing, green bean casserole and cornbread or rolls.  To finish off the feast, there is certain to be one or all of the following; pecan pie, pumpkin pie and apple pie – perhaps all topped with ice cream!

A Thanksgiving plate containing the items above, means consuming an entire day’s worth of calories and a week’s worth of negative digestive effects in just one sitting!

There are ways to avoid the traditional gut-busting habit, without giving in to the holiday weight gain creep and still being able to enjoy delicious food.

Keep an eye out for future posts, where I will include some alternative recipes that taste great but will not have the gut-wrenching effects of some traditional Thanksgiving recipes.
