Active Play, Balance My Day
Walk instead of watch. Take a walk after Thanksgiving dinner instead of watching TV. Ask the kids if they want to join in!
Breakfast GO Power
Power up with your favorite cereal or even a slice of toast with peanut butter. Breakfast helps keep you from overeating throughout the whole day. Yes, even on Thanksgving breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
Think WATER first. Drink a full glass of water before eating your Thanksgiving meal.
Fruits & Veggies – Every Day the Tasty Way
Plan to bring fresh veggies to snack on, and add a tasty low-fat dip. Carrots, celery, tomatoes, and broccoli are very tasty with some salsa or low-fat ranch!
Let hunger be your guide (not your eyes). Check your hunger level on a scale of “0” (running on empty) to “10” (over-full). Stop eating when you feel mostly full, but could still eat some more.
