Your Thanksgiving Cheatsheet

Nov 28, 2019

 


 

 

Americans reportedly consume, on average, 3000 calories during the Thanksgiving meal—and that doesn’t even include appetizers and cocktails!

 

You, my friend, are not the average American.

 

You are awake to and aware of all your food and you’ve planned your food week to include this one special meal.

 

Then back you go to your regularly scheduled eating plan.

 

You figured out when you’re scheduling your enjoyable exercise to balance out the stuffing and you’ve decided who you really want to connect with at the Holiday table so you can focus on family and gratitude instead of the pie.

 

Nice job!

 

To help you in your efforts, below is your Thanksgiving Meal Cheatsheet.

It’s a list of the typical Thanksgiving faire along with it’s calorie count.

Use it to pre-plan your supper so you can easily fit it into your week’s total and enjoy guilt-free.

 

Happy Thanksgiving!
