Good Thanksgiving Foods

Thanksgiving is coming up. That means family get-togethers and lots of food! That also means the temptation to overeat and gain some extra pounds. No one wants that.

According to this article, our Thanksgiving foods aren't all that bad. Many of our Thanksgiving favorites are pretty good for us! The main course, turkey, is almost always a good choice. I say "almost" because baking your turkey is always a lower calorie option rather than deep frying your turkey. Either way, though, you're going to be getting a lot of nutrients and protein. Protein is always good! :)

Potatoes aren't always a bad thing either. You just have to be careful not to have TOO much butter and extras with it. Limit your portions and you'll be fine. The same thing with almost any other dish. Pumpkin pie, for example, has a lot of good nutrition in it too, but take it easy on the Cool Whip.

Grace and peace to you, my friends! Enjoy your Thanksgiving celebrations! It truly is a blessing to be able to reflect on all you have in the presence of your family while getting to enjoy an abundance of food. There are so many that don't even have a fraction of it! Be infused! God bless you!
