One week away from Thanksgiving Day, it’s time to start talking menus.
Thankfully, a Thanksgiving meal doesn’t mean we have to completely throw caution to wind with our food intake. In fact, a handful of menu substitutions can provide a healthier take on what will still be a delicious dinner (and a weekend’s worth of leftovers, right??).
This infographic from MyFitnessPal offers nine ideas for simple swaps on your Thanksgiving table that will cut down the calories without skimping on the flavor. For example, switching from canned cranberry sauce to fresh cranberry relish can knock out 36% of the calories and 54% of the sugar. And honestly, it sounds just as good!
It’s a valuable resource to share with your patients on your social media pages – just another tool to help patients make healthier choices throughout the holiday season.
