Inspired Health Group's Dietitian Nutritionist, Nicole Moretta, shares a Thanksgiving Day eating and activity plan to enjoy the holiday and a healthy lifestyle.

Your Thanksgiving Day Eating and Activity Plan

If you’ve already made some healthy lifestyle changes don’t let the holidays derail your progress. Follow these tips for an easy way to have a healthy Thanksgiving/holiday etc (WHATEVER YOU THINK SOUNDS GOOD) 

  1. Don’t skip meals. This can cause you to over eat and your blood sugar to spike.
  2. Include physical activity in your day and NOT as a punishment for eating a piece of pie. Do it because you CAN and because being able to move is something we should be thankful for.
  3. Eats lots of fresh colorful foods during the day
  4. If you're going to a gathering, bring a side dish that is loaded with veggies, like Maple-Ginger-Roasted Vegetables with Pecans


Eggs with peppers and mushrooms with slice of whole grain toast, Smuckers Natural PB and a few blackberries on top (red, tan, purple)

Family Physical Activity:

Family workout with the kids about 20min. This helps with my stress and helps the kids burn off some energy since most of the day is spent sitting around


Protein shake with Organic chocolate protein powder, ½ frozen banana, frozen strawberries, spinach, water (yellow, red, green)


Greek salad with chicken, hummus, bell peppers, kalamata olives, feta cheese and tomatoes (green, green, red, black, red)


Traditional Thanksgiving dinner and I bring a vegetable side dish


I pick my favorite sweets to have and I make sure to put everything on a plate and enjoy this time with everyone around the table. My personal choice is my moms cheesecake that she only make twice a year and my cousin strawberry pretzel cake.


PRO TIP: if you’re running out of oven space use the slow cooker to make your sweet potatoes. Here’s how to do it.
