Healthy Meals for Thanksgiving Day
As we prepare for Thanksgiving Day, it is sometimes hard to figure out healthy alternatives to our traditional holiday foods. Many of our favorite foods are high in calories and fat, serving ourselves seconds, or even thirds, does not help our waistline either. Thanksgiving dinner does not have to affect your weight. With a little help, you can help your family enjoy healthier alternatives on Thanksgiving Day.
