Ok, I need your help on TWO THINGS for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
FIRST, I am determined to make a really healthy but yummy Thanksgiving dinner with some unique dishes and of course the yummy turkey this year. Our daughter can enjoy the food now (to some extent) and it would be a great challenge to put together a menu that satisfies the whole family.
I want to hear from you! What are your favorite traditional Thanksgiving recipes and how did you alter them to be just a little bit more healthy? If you are stuck for ideas, click on the cover of this month’s issue of Clean Eating magazine.
I’m starting my own list right now, so in a few days I’ll reveal my Clean Eating Thanksgiving Menu…and oh yes, it will definitely include dessert. No one stands in the way of me and pumpkin pie. I’ve got a great recipe up my sleeve for that one.
SECOND, I’m planning a weekend of activity to keep everyone in my household active and out of the usual food coma. Some ideas coming to mind are a hike, maybe a nice walk on the beach. maybe a little frisbee, and some pilates for me! What are you planning to do to keep yourself moving, motivated, and energetic. I know it’s tempting to veg out on your days off, but think about it. What activities can you and your family & friends do?
Email me your ideas and leave your comments below. I’ll post some of the responses in a few days.
Have a great week!
