I know you're busy getting ready for the holidays, so I'm going to keep this short and sweet! I wanted to give you MY ALL TIME FAV FIT- FAST- FRESH & FUN THANKSGIVING HOLIDAY RECIPE for fitness inspired by my dear friend Becca!! I truly love everything about the holiday because it means FAMILY FUN TIME - lots of friends gathering and cooking! I love to cook, bake and eat! Don't you? BUT first a few tips: 1. Be sure to eat slowly. 2. KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT YOUR LAST MEAL!! :) 3. Fill the INSIDE of your plate 1X 4. Protein is a fist size 5. Veggies are 2 -3 fists (umm, if they aren't loaded with marshmallows) 6. Don't snack on the appetizers 7. Drink 8-10oz of water 30 minutes BEFORE you eat! 8. Never eat without a napkin on your lap (translates to: don't eat standing up) 9. Stop before you've cleared that plate and ask yourself, "Am I still hungry?" 10. ENJOY the people. The LOVE. The Gratitude. That's truly what this holiday SEASON is all about.. not the food. 11. Take a tupperware container and pack some of this goodies you couldn't finish in your plate for another meal.
