Many of our clients are asking us about healthy options to provide at their table for Thanksgiving. If you plan on making your Thanksgiving socially distant, you still have to have an array of foods for those who are within your home bubble for an important meal with family.
Below, Barton Chiropractic Clinic goes over a few healthy Thanksgiving options that will both satiate and energize you.
Salad, Salad, Salad
Include more than one salad option, and make sure you get more creative than iceberg lettuce, which has remarkably little nutritional value. Instead, choose nutrient-dense spinach and kale for your salad base. Throw in carrots, beets, cucumbers, celery, sprouts, avocado, and/or nuts (walnuts, almonds, cashews, just to name a few) to make your salad next-level.
If you're eating turkey, try to opt for organic. Try to also include a plant-based protein source (bean patties, for instance) for those in your clan who do not eat meat.
Include creative vegetable options, like sweet potatoes, broccoli dishes, veggie casseroles, stews, and more. You want to make sure that your offerings are predominantly vegetable if you are going to truly have a healthy spread for Thanksgiving.
