Thanksgiving is one of the few days during the year where we toss all notions of diet and healthiness out the window to overindulge in delicious dishes like stuffing, mashed potatoes and endless slices of pumpkin pie. But you don’t have to break out the expandable waist pants on Thanksgiving by swapping out a few calorie-laden dishes with healthier ones and changing a few Thanksgiving day habits.
Check out the infographic below for how you can make this Thanksgiving a healthier one.
Thanksgivings Healthier Food Options:
