Here are 5 tips that may help: 1 — Eat sitting up straight, and not standing up. This will help you to increase awareness, and a good posture will help you to naturally breathe properly and it will support your digestion. And most importantly, you will eat more consciously.

Whether you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner or bringing a dish to share, make your recipes healthier with less fat, sugar, and calories. Dietician Carrie Tollefson with Overlake Medical Center. Start your Thanksgiving with a healthy breakfast full of protein and fiber.

Think low-fat yogurt and fresh fruit, or whole-grain toast with eggs, to help keep you full throughout your meal. Having at least one solid meal before Thanksgiving dinner will make it less likely you’ll over-eat; Use good ingredients and healthy recipes. Try to make as many dishes as possible from scratch and avoid pre-made or out of the box foods. Not only will you eliminate chemicals and preservatives, but home-made foods simply taste better. 5 Tips for a Healthier Thanksgiving.

3. Sweeten with Dates. 4. Say No To Turkey. 5. Give Thanks.

When you don’t drink water, your body feels the need to go nuts on calories, thus the overeating problem at Thanksgiving. Hydration is the answer, and you should try to drink about 16 ounces of filtered water before the meal. Don’t forget to hydrate while you eat, and no, wine does not count as hydrating. Enjoy yourself! Most importantly, have fun with your loved ones and enjoy the day.

Holidays and family gatherings in general can create a lot of stress if you’re trying to stick with your healthy eating. Try not to let what you eat to be the focus of your day. Instead be grateful for the love you have around you. Play it safe and snack on vegetables as you cook or chew a piece of gum to keep from mindlessly putting things in your mouth.

Give your favorite traditional Thanksgiving dishes a healthy makeover. Try roasted sweet potatoes with apple cider glaze instead of sweet potato casserole. Don’t bother to peel your potatoes before you mash them. Look for low-sodium sauces, soups and broths, beans, and juices for a healthy holiday that doesn’t sacrifice taste. You can also cook your own low-sodium Thanksgiving dishes; this list of recipes from the Food Network is a great place to start.

  • I’ll be cooking at a friend’s house, on “Turkey Day.” But it will be Peking Duck, instead of turkey. I’ll be making roasted veggies, sprinkled with duck fat… and instead of the traditional stuffing… we’ll have roughly chopped cauliflower, celery and herbs… topped with a gravy made with chicken stock and the duck drippings (and slightly thickened with xantham gum.) For dessert, I’ve already made a keto-friendly maple-pecan sponge cake… made with pecan flour and chopped pecans as well as sugar-free maple flavoring. I’ll be doing OMAD and strictly counting my calories, in order to avoid overeating. (By the way….. this is my first TG, off work, in 7 years. )

  • Wish I discovered this video BEFORE the holidays ��‍♀️�� I can totally relate to the all-or-nothing thinking and to eating all the food in the house just because it’s there lol������

  • I recently started my weight loss journey and I stumbled upon Dani’s channel and my life will never be the same! I learned how to cook for myself and include healthy wholesome food into my diet. Preparing your own food really feels great, especially knowing it’s good for you and even more so when it’s delicious!

  • Love it! Thank you. Just what I needed!!! I actually do feel anxious about the holiday season. I’ve lost 22kg this year and Christmas scares me.

  • I’m a healthy person and I used to overeat during holidays. Now I just allow myself to enjoy without setting too high expectations and I end up less stressed about it therefore less bing eating. When the expectations are high I know for sure I won’t be able to fulfill them so I just fail at the first temptation.

  • dont focus on perfection, you will have balanced eating moments, and other times you have to let go
    holiday is a small friction of the year
    enjoy yourself and dont be obsessive,
    Those are my favorite threes,
    This video will be my guidance during this period,
    And this video is one of the reasons why i am subscribed to this channel.

  • I am on my healthy journey. I have been on it for about 2 months. I made my plate for Thanksgiving like normal just with smaller portions and I ended up having half left on my plate. So it goes to show you that your body and mind can be retrained. I listened to my body when I was full instead of trying to keep eating to clear the plate. Love your tips. Thank you!

  • Thank you!! So helpful! I lost 42 pounds last year. I gave up sugar and all white foods and have been eating a whole foods plant-based diet. I feel better now at 52 than I did at 38. I made it through Thanksgiving very well. I had a very small portions of a few of my favorites. My family did ask me to make my traditional maple, apple crumb pie, which I did. I had two forkfuls to taste it and see how it came out, and that was all it took to get a sugar buzz right to my brain LOL what they say about giving up sugar and the results you’ll reap…..it’s all true!!

  • Hello Dani thank you for the great tips.they are very helpful. Just to let you know we made the garlic mashed potatoes yesterday for Thanksgiving and they were yummy. thank you for sharing your recipe and remembering us Vegans.❤

  • Thank you for a great video �� Can you make a video on the idea you mentioned about “healthy meal prep for the holidays”. Would love to bring my own prepped breakfast home for Christmas. I’m vegan btw.

  • I love this advise!!! I’m going to send this video link to all three of my adult children. We will all be together for Christmas and are planning meals already. We are all on our own health journey and I don’t want anyone stressing about what to eat. Thanks again for all the great recipes. I’ve been cooking a lot more. Your muffins have become a big hit.

  • What no outtakes?! That’s one of my favorite moments of your videos:), your make-up looks really good, do you do it yourself? Thanks for the tips., Sandy (Dan Lee’s wife)

  • Hi.Dani
    Yes portion.control❗

  • Why do we have to feel shame of of our choice Of eating, you know at this time of era, everyone knows what to eat and not to eat, it’s only the determination of the mind, just stop saying do this and not this, motivate people to eat healthy

  • You seem like the kind of friend I could go to Starbucks with and enjoy a treat without having to spend all of the social time talking about how guilty we feel about having the treat. I appreciate that!! ��

  • Very good advice! Love your videos as always. Not a bad idea to plan a little extra exercise around the holiday as well if possible with loved ones.

  • Glad to have stumbled on this video in Nov. 2019 right before Thanksgiving. Thanks for giving us more great perspective! Happy Thanksgiving 2 U & yours!!

  • I eat wayyyyy 2 dam FAST. Food is sooooo Euphoric. When I say ( or someone else says ) ” CHEW the dam food” its already in my stomach lol

  • While I do understand point five, I think it’s unhealthful to tie needing “forgiveness” to eating any food. No food is immoral or bad, and linking a mindset to it is one of the things that perpetuates eating-guilt. I agree with the “let it be okay” and “let it go” sentiments and your other tips. But no one needs forgiveness for eating a cookie.

  • While this video was okay, I find it very strange that you did absolutely no Thanksgiving recipes. The planning and batch recording for this week was pretty crucial for most businesses especially for YouTubers and you completely missed the mark. I suppose when you intentionally didn’t acknowledge your 1 million subscriber milestone that was a pretty big clue that your lack of focus was clear and present. It doesn’t seem like you’re very focused or care much on your YouTube channel anymore. I mean your last video was mashed potatoes. It took you what like 15 minutes to crank that out for an entire week of content. and the one before that was brussel sprouts with bacon, oh come on are you really out of original ideas. I don’t know, just seems like your recipes are not as exciting as they once were. Or you change a recipe by one spice and all of sudden it’s a brand new recipe and everyone supposed to be excited. Maybe YouTubers need to take lessons from TV shows. Jerry Seinfeld knew when it was time to end his show. Perhaps by having over a million subscribers you don’t have to work so hard on making good content. I don’t know what the real reason is just that I’m just not as excited to see the same recipes that everybody else has.

  • I’m surprised there are no comments here, you shared such important tips and thoughts! It is crucial to enjoy holidays fully and to have a feeling of balance, thank you for this, Autumn, really helpful!
