Happy Thanksgiving to all.
Do you feel it? You know what I am talking about. The feeling of being so full you want to explode! Full from all the holiday feasting this Thanksgiving. The heaviness of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, pies, etc,. Yes, we all know the feeling even before the day comes. We know we will eat way more than we need to of those holiday favorites, and then regret it as we lay or sit in pain the rest of the day.
Why do we do that to ourselves? Well, it’s time to start a new tradition, to make this Thanksgiving and all the future holidays healthier ones. There is no reason we need to eat like we were raised to do. Portion control, and smarter choices this holiday season. Now, how about eating healthier food, that is also beautiful to look at? Why not get yourself an edible arrangement to help your holiday table look amazing and also help with eating healthier. Just look how beautiful, and yummy these look ~
How amazing would it be to have your guests show up and see a couple of these sitting around on the tables. Baskets filled with fruit, some dipped fruit, and all cute as could be. Forget those cocktail weenies and bowls of chips and dip. Try something new for a change and treat yourself and your guests to healthy snacks before a meal. This way, everyone can fill up on the good stuff and they won’t over indulge in all the other stuff. A few tips, cook a smaller turkey and make less of all the extra fixings and that way people don’t over eat. And, of course having a beautiful and yummy edible arrangement within snacking reach all day helps. Oh, I am drooling looking at these. YUM!
