In the US, November 25th is a day celebrated as Thanksgiving and a time for reuniting with family and loved ones. There is nothing more satisfying than being surrounded by those who love and care for you. When we come to this time of year, we are less worried about what we eat is on the healthy scale of things, but it is possible to be healthier or at least eat healthier even on Thanksgiving, and here is how.
- First off, choose organic ingredients such as greens, meat, flour, etc. these are great ways to ensure the meals prepared are healthier
- Second, prepare what you can in a pressure cooker or clay pot. These cooking vessels will help keep the nutrients in your food. So fewer nutrients are lost. With a pressure cooker, you get the nutrients locked in as you would in a clay pot but in a fraction of the time. This makes for a healthier mealtime all together.
- ImageThird, make sure your plate is dominated by veggies and plant-based foods, with a quarter of your plate being meat. This will provide you with lots of healthy nutrients and less unhealthy portions that can contribute to weight gain and inflammatory responses in the body.
It is possible to eat healthier during the holidays and Thanksgiving is no different from other family gathering-oriented holidays. Enjoy your mealtimes and make sure your plate is healthy as possible. t is okay to indulge every now and again but try to make more health-conscious decisions in the portions you eat and ingredients used in food preparation this Thanksgiving.
