Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss clients of Slender For Life™ are already talking about the holidays so the October McDougall Newsletter featuring Holiday Meal Planning by Mary McDougall is very timely. Believe it or not, Thanksgiving and Christmas can be the healthiest meals of the year. Mary McDougall has some great ideas for holiday meal planning. You may recall that I am an avid fan of the stuffed pumpkin for Thanksgiving Dinner. Not only does it look beautiful, it tastes really good. In fact it tastes so good that we have to make two so that I have left overs. There is never any left when our Thanksgiving guests leave – it really is that good!
Holiday Meal Planning
By Mary McDougall
This time of year, the Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays frighten many people who eat a healthy diet. They wonder how to socialize with friends and how to prepare a meal in their home. These two days are supposed to be the largest feasts of the year. Yet in fact, both dinners are the healthiest, most vegetarian-like, most McDougall-like meals people eat all year long. Traditionally, these holiday dinners consist of mashed white potatoes, roasted sweet potatoes, a bread stuffing, butternut and acorn squash, cranberries, and a variety of green vegetables, including Brussels sprouts, carrots, cauliflower, and green beans. For dessert, pumpkin pie ends the feast. That’s a cornucopia of starches and vegetables. The turkey served is the leanest of all common meats. The truth is that every other dinner consumed by Westerners all year long is far richer in fat, cholesterol, salt and sugar than is eaten at these two traditional festivals. Therefore, if you are a healthy eater you will find Thanksgiving and Christmas the two most comfortable times of the year to socialize with all of your family and friends. I have laid out the menu, shopping list, and time schedule so that you will be able to more easily prepare a successful meal.
Slender For Life™ clients know that food should taste great and should be savored. Food should be sensual, pleasurable and enjoyable. Just make sure that it is real food and to stop eating when your appetite says “enough – no more!” Happy Holidays!
