Healthy Monday: Thanksgiving Sides
Hope you had a wonderful weekend and are looking forward to a not-too-stressful Thanksgiving. If Thanksgiving and stress always go hand in hand for you, it's important to remember to keep up your nutrition during what is typically considered the beginning of Holiday madness. Stress can affect your immune system, so don't slack on getting your veggies and try to find at least 30 minutes for exercise. In charge of the menu this year? Try serving up some healthy side dishes, courtesy of Wholeliving.com. And if you're not in charge of the menu, well, then all I can say is good luck staying away from the delicious sweet potato souffle with the gooey marshmallows and crispy cinnamon... Excuse me while I wipe the drool off my mouth.
Clockwise: Roasted Winter Squash and Apple Soup, Green Beans with Golden Raisins, Hearty Garlic Greens, Cranberry Pear Sauce
