Holiday Meal savers
It is that time again when we are faced with many temptations and heavy meals including sauces, gravies, butter, cream, etc... While are all entitled to a cheat meal, we can seriously over do the cheats and not be good at knowing when to stop.
I find it so much easier to incorporate something healthy on the big day, like on Thanksgiving to add a healthier option so that not everything on your plate is high in calorie content. This is the perfect time to use the 21 Day Fix portion containers as well. Your plate you be mostly made up of veggies, followed by protein and smallest portion being carbs. Tradional meals included stuffing and rolls, have you considered couscous or quinoa this year? How about trying roasting your veggies instead of loading them down with butter? I can share many different recipes and tips to help you get through the holidays, just message me and lets chat so that you can start to ligthen up your favorite meals.
*Roasted veggies* heat oven to 350 degrees, cut veggies (cauliflower, brocoli, brussel sprouts to name a few) in similar sizes, spray a baking sheet with cooking spray, line the pan with the veggies, drizzle lightly with extra virgin olive oil and salt / pepper, roast for 30-45 minutes or until your preferred texture. Additional tips would be spice it up with cayenne pepper or cumin!
