3 Tips to Use This Thanksgiving

Here are 3 tips to help you navigate your way through the Thanksgiving holiday.

  1. Eat breakfast. Remember, breakfast is the MOST important meal of the day. Plus showing up to a party starving doesn’t usually lead to making smart choices.
  2. Fill 75% of your plate with fiber-rich foods first. You may even want to take a favorite dish to share with others. Need some ideas? Check out our Pinterest Holiday Eats & Treats Board
  3. Get off those rears! Don’t give in to sleepiness. Thanksgiving is always related to being sleepy after the meal. Go for a stroll, play catch with a football, set up horseshoes, pull out a game like Twister or Pictionary, or play hip charades. You’ll be amazed how much fun the whole family will have.
