Thanksgiving is exactly one week away. The average meal on this day contains about 3,000 calories and 229 grams of fat. Besides the obvious health and weight impact this meal will have on you, these meals can zap your energy. By cleaning up your traditional recipes, you can save some calories and have the energy to enjoy the day with your family.
Here are some tips:
Green Bean Casserole is a Thanksgiving tradition in so many homes. The problem with it is the condensed, canned “Cream of Chemical” soup and the processed French fried onion topping. My final tip is a cleaned up version as a wonderful substitute.
Most important is to enjoy your family and friends and remember that Thanksgiving is only one day. No matter what indulgences you enjoy, Friday morning affords a new opportunity for a new day!!!
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
