9 Days ‘til Thanksgiving - Holiday Healthy Tip #2

Be selective, exercise portion control

If you are worried about carbohydrates, you could have a worry frenzy Thanksgiving day. Avoid the frenzy and decide to be choosy at the family feast. Thanksgiving foods that are typically high in carbohydrates include stuffing, dinner rolls, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie, to name a few.

Don't feel obligated to sample everything on the table. For example choose either sweet potatoes or mashed potatoes; sweet potato pie or apple cobbler, not both! Make selective food choices that create a rainbow of color on your plate.


Because high carbohydrate foods are plentiful at most Thanksgiving feasts, portion control is king. Eat smaller portions.  If you can't decide on one or two carbohydrate foods to eat, take very small portions or "samples" of several dishes.
