Side note: Planning a healthy Thanksgiving mealBy
The need for good health doesn’t take a holiday, but it is much easier to overlook nutritional advice or doctor’s orders during the big “eating holidays” because it’s a part of the fun and “everybody is doing it.”
Diabetics and those trying to avoid diabetes may be best served by putting some thoughtful planning into the Thanksgiving Day spread or remembering to prepare something healthy in case you are faced with three variations of Fried Mac and Cheese.
Diabetic-friendly side dishes are a great way to fill you and your plate while giving you an alternative to the usual carb-heavy holiday fare. Chef John Wright has some suggestions for a Thanksgiving without post-meal regrets.
