The season has snuck up on us and it is THANKSGIVING week! Our kiddos are off of school and we are out the door to visit family. We cannot wait for Thursday where we get to gather around the table and have a nice meal with our closest family members. As this year comes to an end, we have so much to be thankful for! Our sweet kids, our community, and the business we get to be apart of!

As you meet with your friends and family here are some healthy tips to include into your holiday!

1. TURKEY TROT - Start the day with a family walk around the neighborhood! Depending on the ages of your kids and the size of your family - you can customize it for what works for you! Take a quick stroll around the park to look at the colorful trees or go for a mile run in the morning! Whatever works! Just start moving! 


3. NOT-SO-SWEET TOOTH - Try some of these amazing recipes this year! They utilize some healthy ingredients to alter your favorite treats just a bit! This is a great way to sneak in some healthy aspects to the dinner and your family won't even notice! Our favorite recipe is the mashed cauliflower - so yummy and a great replacement for some of those carbs! 




2. STIR & SQUAT - Try and stay active in between cooking times. Thanksgiving Day whole day is filled with precise coordination when putting potatoes in the oven and stirring green beans, but in the spare seconds - get active! Do some squats in the kitchen, run outside and throw the football with your kids, or hop on the treadmill even! Throw on some fun music with younger kids and dance around!
