Do this to avoid bloat…

Growing up in New England, Thanksgiving was a big deal and has always been one of my favorite holidays. We’d visit Plymouth Rock and the local turkey farm. The street I lived on was named after the native Nashoba tribe and next to Pilgrims Path and Puritan Lane. I love the family gathering together, the focus on thankfulness, and of course all of the delicious traditional foods I look forward to each year!

If you’re anything like me, you have a tendency to overdo it just a little (or maybe a lot) with the cornbread oyster stuffing, cranberry sauce, and creamy pumpkin pie. I have a hard time deciding if I should make smoked or sous-vide turkey, mashed potatoes or sweet potato casserole, green beans or Brussel sprouts, pumpkin or pecan pie.  So, I make it all! Cooking is love! I may be a health coach, but I’m also human, and I just can’t say no to my favorite foods of the year, even the carbs!

But with taste testing while I cook and then enjoying a bit of everything at Thanksgiving dinner comes some major bloating. Even when I make it all gluten and dairy-free! Plus, I’m already feeling out of sorts from all of the pre-holiday treats and meals out, getting together with visiting out-of-town friends and family. Are you feeling it too?

Do this to avoid feeling bloated this Thanksgiving

The good news is that we don’t have to suffer through the tummy troubles that a huge holiday feast, or two, can bring on (or rely on sweatpants to get through the weekend). With some careful planning ahead of time, this is how I make sure my clients and I don’t derail all of our health goals progress to date.

Here’s my mini-plan to prevent feeling stuffed and de-bloat this holiday week:

Put this mini-plan into action ASAP to get your belly feeling better (so

you can fasten that top button). I know I’ll be using it, too!

Happy Thanksgiving!
