How to Host a Healthy Thanksgiving

Turkey Day is almost here, and it’s time to start getting ready! Here are a few tips to help you prepare a healthy Thanksgiving for your friends and loved ones.

Plan Your Menu

Select your menu at least two weeks before the big day. You won’t have to sacrifice that Thanksgiving flavor with our tasty RM-approved recipes.

Create a Shopping List

Make a list of the ingredients you will need for each dish after you choose your menu. Shop the perimeter of the grocery store to ensure you are cooking with the freshest, healthiest ingredients.

Recruit Help to Stay on Track

Invite friends and loved ones who support your health journey. Be open about your decision to have a healthy Thanksgiving and encourage guests to bring nutritious dishes, too.

Decorate in Advance

Have your table set at lease a week in advance if you plan to host. Previewing your Thanksgiving table ahead of time will help ensure every detail in the décor is just how you like it.

Pack It Up

Put away leftovers once the dinner is over to resist the urge to nibble on them. You can purchase reusable containers ahead of time, so your guests can take the leftovers home with them.
