Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you have a wonderful day with your family and loved ones. 

We appreciate you and have you as a part of our amazing community! 

As the holidays are now in full swing, in order to help you celebrate but STILL stay on track with your goals …

I’ve got a quick list of healthy swaps –and my #1 swap might even come in handy today!

This is the time of year we tend to eat more than usual … and the foods we eat also tend to be richer and more calorie dense than normal, too.

Talk about a double whammy for your energy, digestion system, and yes I am going to say it) your waistline!

By all means, enjoy your “worth it” favorites this year … but you can offset those with a few healthy swaps for foods you won’t even think about tomorrow.

7 Healthy Swaps This Holiday Season

  • Fresh steamed green beans instead of green bean casserole
  • Mashed cauliflower, squash, or sweet potatoes instead of mashed potatoes
  • Baked cinnamon apples topped with coconut cream instead of apple pie
  • Hummus instead of a cheese ball
  • Creamy nut or oat milk in your eggnog instead of cream
  • Zucchini noodles in your soup or stew instead of conventional pasta or potatoes
  • Medjool dates or fruit instead of holiday candy or cookies (portion sizes still matter!)

…. And my FAVORITE swap?

Go for a walk instead of crashing on the couch after you eat. 

Going for a light walk (even a short one) after you eat will help reduce blood sugar and insulin levels…

And it may also help with digestion. 

I hope these swaps help you feel and move better this holiday season.

It’s the little things we do every day that add up to BIG results!
