Around this time of year, a lot of wellness sites like to list ways to not overeat during the holidays, especially on Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong, I am all for the tips and tricks to not overeat during the holidays. However, I think a lot of the times we over think this. The thought of walking into a house filled with your loved ones should not leave you feeling overwhelmed by the amount of food that soon will feast your eyes. Thanksgiving should leave you stress-free and enjoy those around you. Well, we can’t say that your family won’t leave you stress-free but at least try and keep food thoughts from engulfing your mind.
Here at EBOOST, we like to keep SPRUCE® in our back pockets for occasions just like this. Thanksgiving dinner, a lot of the time, can seem as though it is a tan colored sea of food. From the turkey to the stuffing, to the mashed potatoes and gravy, to the rolls and the apple pie, Thanksgiving dinners don’t offer much vibrancy in colorful foods. Sure, there are some pops of color from the cranberries, green bean casserole, and pumpkin pie, but where are all the beautiful green veggies at? Sorry green vegetables, but Thanksgiving kicked you out a long time ago.
If your Thanksgiving dinner seems a lot like the one mentioned above, then definitely don’t forget your SPRUCE® at home. Using one of the common tips when it comes to not overeating is the approach I like to take with SPRUCE® before Thanksgiving dinner. Take your SPRUCE® and mix it with water, consume before it is time to feast. This parallels with the idea that experts share when it comes to drinking a glass of water before a meal to help you not overeat.
Drinking SPRUCE® before Thanksgiving dinner will not only hopefully keep you from overeating but also give your body some greens and nutrients that may be missing from your plate. SPRUCE® is made with kale, asparagus, broccoli, spinach, and cabbage, some of the most nutritious greens. Plus, each serving of SPRUCE® provides the true whole food equivalent of 1.5 servings of greens as defined by the USDA
