The holidays often mean food, food and more food! Although the dishes are delicious, they aren’t always great for overall health and wellness. Here are some tips to make Thanksgiving dinner a little healthier:

*Incorporate a morning or afternoon walk as a new tradition.
*Use a smaller-sized plate. You’ll serve yourself smaller portions.
*Don’t listen to mom’s advice, engage in a lot of conversation. This will keep you eating slowly and feel fuller faster.
