Protect your waistline this Thanksgiving with seaweed nutrients
For the countless Americans who are trying to improve their eating habits, Thanksgiving presents the ultimate temptation. No matter how disciplined you may be throughout the rest of the year, can you really resist platter after platter of delicious side dishes, not to mention that plump, juicy turkey at the center of the table? We thought not. Yes, this holiday is all about showing gratitude for all you have and enjoying a bit of family togetherness, but it also tends to be a day of excess in every form.
Now, as anyone who has attempted an incredibly restrictive diet knows, going cold turkey – if you'll pardon the expression – is generally a miserable and ultimately unrealistic approach. Rather than enjoying healthy portions, you will probably find yourself fixating on all of the food you can't have. This can perpetuate a fairly unhealthy relationship with food that makes you all the more likely to indulge to a greater degree later on.
So what can you do to protect your waistline this holiday? Don't avoid your favorite foods altogether. Instead, select dishes that are nutritious and filling and manage your portions carefully. That way, no matter how much you may want that second piece of pie, you simply can't imagine eating it.
Introducing Seagreens® seaweed to your traditional Thanksgiving recipes is a great way to accomplish this, since research has shown that Seagreens® can make bread and other foods more filling. It doesn't hurt that this sea vegetable will also infuse plenty of vitamins, minerals and trace elements into your dishes either!
