8 Days ‘til Thanksgiving - Holiday Healthy Tip #3

Eat your vegetables



Why not dress up the table with some colorful vegetable dishes?

Veggies come in all colors and are very nutritious. Non-starchy vegetables are diabetic friendly because they are low in carbohydrates. They are weight watcher friendly because they are low in calories. If you want to avoid holiday waist-spread, veggies will help fill you up and help you avoid overeating.
Here's a partial list of non-starchy vegetables to choose from:
Artichoke, Asparagus, Bamboo shoots, Beans (green, wax, Italian), Bean sprouts, Beets, Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower, Celery, Chayote, Chinese spinach, Eggplant, Greens (collard, kale, mustard, turnip), Mushrooms, Okra, Onions, Pea pods, Peppers, Sprouts and Zucchini
