With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to start planning for how you’ll enjoy the celebration while staying on track with your health and wellness goals. Here at EVER BETTER™, we believe that balance is the key to a happy and healthy life, which is why we’ve put together these simple tips for having a healthy Thanksgiving while still enjoying and indulging in the flavors and festivities of the day.
Stick to Your Exercise Routine
While the shorter work and school week may force you to adjust your daily schedules, it’s important to continue with your normal exercise routine in the days leading up to Thanksgiving. This will help you stay energized leading up to the big day, and once you sit down to enjoy a delicious meal you can indulge in all of your favorite dishes knowing you’ve earned it!
Keep Stress In Check
Whether you are hosting friends and family or traveling to be with loved ones, this time of year can get stressful. Between managing schedules, meal prep, and everything else on your To-Do list, it’s easy to get caught up and let stress levels rise. Be sure to carve out time for your favorite relaxation rituals, like meditation, journaling, or taking a short walk outside.
When Thanksgiving Day arrives, you will likely be surrounded by many delicious snacks and appetizers leading up to dinner. Remember, you want to enjoy every bite of your delicious meal which means you should be mindful when snacking before. Reach for healthier options like fresh veggies, nuts, our EVER BETTER™ Protein Cookie Bites if you’re craving something sweet, to help keep you satisfied without filling you up too much before the big event.
Savor the Moments
Thanksgiving is about spending time with loved ones and reflecting on everything we are grateful for. Your meal should be a celebration where you can enjoy this special time as well as savor the delicious meal with your loved ones. Remember, it’s OK to indulge every now and then as long as you get back on track afterwards.
