Here are Kimberly's three tips:
- "You can enjoy the heavier foods at Thanksgiving, since it is a special meal and time of the year, but be sure to still load up on veggies. They will act as a natural form of portion control for the heavier foods."
- "If your family or friends do not usually serve salads or veggies, offer to make or bring some. Try to include green, non-starch baked veggies such as zucchinis, broccoli, or cauliflower."
- "Sweet potatoes, full of beta carotene and fiber, are a more nutritious choice over white bread, sliced breads, or buns that may be on the table. It is a good idea to load up on sweet potatoes, and skip all the bread."
If you end up overindulging after all and are looking for a quick way to get back on track, Kimberly recommends her Glowing Green Smoothie to jumpstart your metabolism.
