Swap Out a Sweet Potato Casserole & Drop In Candies Sweet Potatoes: Sweet potatoes are a great food – rich in beta carotene which in turn makes them rich in vitamin A. We take this holiday staple dish and cut out nearly 300 calories a serving while leaving in the flavor and health benefits
Sweet Potato Casserole with Marshmallows
Swap Out Traditional Stuffing & Drop In Stuffing with Sage and Chives: Our spin on this popular dish cuts out nearly half the calories of the traditional version. We use whole wheat bread in our version, which is a much healthier choice since it has more fiber in it, which helps to create a feeling of fullness, in turn satisfying you more than regular white bread
Swap Out Traditional Pumpkin Pie & Drop In Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust: Our take on this Thanksgiving classic features a light graham cracker crust. The filling's custardy and rich, with just a hint of spice. And pumpkin is so good for you. Just like sweet potatoes, it's filled with beta carotene and vitamin A. It's also another great source of fiber, which we all need more of in our diets.
Activity vs Non-Activity.
Weight Watchers recently launched ActiveLink, a fitness & activity monitor that translates activity to PointsPlus values and assess levels then it challenges you to do more. Staying active around the holidays can help you enjoy food-laden parties and keeps the balance between calories in and calories out
The monitor links to a personal web page where Weight Watchers members can track their activity, see how it measures up to their goals, and even get tips on staying motivated. What's really exciting is that ActiveLink is the only fitness & activity monitor that translates activity directly into to PointsPlus values. So, it helps members better understand how activity impacts their health and overall results.
Remember that Thanksgiving is only one day out of the year, and really just one meal. Focus on the things to be thankful for, not just the food on our plate.
