Since I’ve lost weight this year, one of the meals that I dread (sort of) is Thanksgiving dinner. Regardless of who hosts dinner, there is always a spread that could potentially feed an entire Army brigade. I have always left Thanksgiving dinner feeling guilty. Not this year, though. While I may take a tablespoon or so of each item offered, I will not be leaving on a tryptophan high.
A good general rule of thumb for any meal is to make sure that your veggies cover half your plate. That leaves fifty percent of your plate for everything else, and if you limit your portion sizes, you can avoid feeling like YOU are the stuffed turkey this Thanksgiving!
While I refuse to go without my pumpkin pie on turkey day, I will be making smarter choices this year.
How about you?
