Welcome! and Thank you for listening. Today I am joined by Addie Majnaric, RDN to discuss Thanksgiving Survival Tips.
We will discuss Thanksgiving Dish Substitutes as well as hidden ingredients in what may seem like a plant based dish.
Thanksgiving food and overeating is not just hard on your waistline but can be very hard on your heart. The sodium in a day’s worth of overindulgent foods can very quickly make the blood pressure skyrocket, and the water retention can lead to heart failure. A few quick tips can go a long way to keep you healthy.
The holiday season can be very stressful. Honesty is the best policy. Being with your family and friends is of utmost importance. The first step is to tell people how much they mean to you and how much you enjoy their company. However, you also need to ask for their support in your food choices. Make it easy and bring a few dishes as possible. Keep the food talk minimal and light. It is not the time for a health lecture.
If you get through this first feasting holiday, you will have the confidence to continue on your health journey. Make every day count. It is the people that make the holiday not the food.
Happy and Healthy Thanksgiving from all of us at Jami Dulaney, MD Health and Wellness Practice.
