Unlimited Greens

Green beans, Brussels, carrots…YUM!! Load up on all different types of veg. The leafy goodness will deliver major fiber and help you feel satisfied…even before you get to the carbs!

1/4 plate lean protein

Turkey is typically the main event, and we’re thankful for its satiating and muscle-building protein. If you’re looking to lower your fat intake, go for breast meat instead of the thigh.

1/4 plate starches

What’s Thanksgiving without some mashed potatoes and sweet potato casserole? Once you’ve filled up on protein and greens, dedicate some room to these yummy staples. And check out our healthy versions HERE!

2 Tbsp gravy

Add a touch of extra flavor to your meal. 2 Tablespoons should do the trick!

a couple glasses of wine

Dinner isn’t complete without a glass of vino! Red wine delivers antioxidants and choosing wine over beer decreases the bloat factor.

Get ready to gobble!
