    Your body will thank you later Don t skip meals and snacks the day of Thanksgiving Get out of the mentality of saving up calories for the big meal The idea is to stay satisfied throughout the day to keep from overindulging Eat a sensible breakfast with an emphasis on fiber and protein Depending on what time you eat the main meal you may want to incorporate a light lunch or a small snack three to four hours after breakfast Be Mindful of Appetizers and Drinks Calories add up quickly before the main meal Enjoy one appetizer and move on Instead of sugary beverages like apple cider opt for water or club soda with a splash of lime or cranberry juice Alcohol is loaded with calories can increase appetite in the short term and reduce inhibitions to eat mindfully If you drink alcohol enjoy one drink throughout the night and sip on water tea or coffee the rest of the evening Serve up one plate and wait Make one plate of food with all of your favorite dishes eat slowly and pause before having more It takes twenty minutes for the stomach to send a message to the brain that it is satisfied When eating too fast this signal is lost and you will end up eating more than you need Engage in conversation and enjoy the company before going back for seconds Walk and Talk Round up family or friends for a leisurely walk either before or after dinner The nutritional integrity of any traditional Thanksgiving dish can be compromised with the addition of fat sugar and sodium Here are some simple ideas and tips from Weston for creating healthier dishes this year Turkey Forgo the skin to reduce calories and saturated fat Stuffing Incorporate more fruits and vegetables into your stuffing recipe Think mushrooms onions shallots bell peppers and chopped apples or pears Try whole wheat bread and incorporate whole grains such as barley and quinoa Gravy Use fat free turkey broth instead of the caloric turkey runoff Use traditional gravy sparingly Mashed potatoes To make slim mashed potatoes first include the potato skin in the mash to increase the fiber of the dish and to save time peeling all those potatoes To increase volume and reduce calories try mixing half mashed potatoes with steamed cauliflower Replace whole milk with skim 1 percent or low fat buttermilk If you like to add butter try whipped butter instead of stick butter You can also skip the mashing altogether and use a low calorie butter spray to dress boiled potatoes Try fresh herbs and spices such as garlic or chives to enhance flavor without added calories or sodium Green Bean Casserole Steam your fresh or frozen green beans instead of sautéing them in oil Replace cream of mushroom soup with sautéed mushrooms onions and shallots Top with toasted slivered almonds instead of fried onions Rolls Replace a white roll or corn bread with whole wheat rolls Cranberry Sauce The canned
