Plan Your Healthy Holiday Season

With the trick-or-treat candy now out of arm's reach, it's time to focus on the holiday season that is upon us. With Thanksgiving just 23 days away, you're no doubt putting plans in order, plans that involve your first holiday meal of the season.

We won't deny that it's fun to just enjoy these food favorites once a year, but we also like the idea of doing so in moderation. With moderation in mind, you get to have the turkey, a little pumpkin pie, and even a single helping of mashed potatoes without worry that you're crushing all of your hard work. With moderation you know that Friday morning it's back to normal, and you might even put in a little extra time at the gym (or walk a little faster during Black Friday shopping!). w

In this newsletter you'll find the best of our Thanksgiving tips, ideas, and recipes to help you give thanks guilt free.
