Healthy Eating During the Thanksgiving Holiday
You tell yourself, "It's Thanksgiving, I'll eat what I want and worry about nutrition later."

It doesn't have to be that way.

There are a few things you can do that can help keep your Thanksgiving meal nutritious without giving up flavor.

For instance, using low-sodium chicken broth, reducing oil and butter wherever possible, and substituting yogurt for sour cream in those dips we all love can go a long way in making your feast healthier than ever before.

Listen in as Jim White, RD, and Melanie Cole, MS, discuss some great ways you can make small changes toward helping make your Thanksgiving dinner not only delicious, but also more nutritious.
