With Thanksgiving just a days away I am getting excited to indulge in some yummy turkey (not too much hehe :p) + some delicious treats (within reason)…but one of my favorite parts of Thanksgiving other than the yummy food is the cozy vibes of being around family + friends. While I tend to dress up for the holidays I find myself wishing I simply dressed cozy as we are sitting on the couch watching football…so my solution for this year is a cozy mustard cardigan paired with jeans that will keep me from over eating haha :p
I have been crushing on mustard hues for fall + nothing beats a cozy cardigan to wrap yourself in…the combination…pure perfection! I love a good cardigan so I am linking to a few of my favorites below.
My go-to skinny jeans are always from Old Navy…I can’t help but love the fit, quality + price. I will be rocking these all season long because I love the denim color…the bluer the better! Thanksgiving Tip…wearing jeans will keep ya from over eating since you won’t want to sit in pain or have your button pop off haha!! :p
If you want to dress up your cozy look simply throw on some pumps. I love rocking white pumps year round because they are so chic + match with everything.
Thanksgiving always calls for over eating, but this year it doesn’t have to! With America becoming more health conscious than ever, here are a few easy tips to help us not go ‘over board’ this Thanksgiving season!
Some of these helpful hints may seem like common sense, but just by doing them you save yourself that bloated feeling and the calories.
1) Portion Control:
Yes, dietitians say this all the time, watch what your eating, take less blah blah blah. Now my version of portion control? People often overload their Thanksgiving plates with everything on the table. First off, take a smaller plate or don’t ‘FILL’ your plate. Take a small amount of food to begin, you’ll be surprised how many people have eyes bigger than their stomachs!
2) Drink Water:
Holidays are often a time for drinking and being merry, however if you drink a few glasses of water before heading to the party or dinner, your more likely to eat less due to you feeling full on water. Also, if you can, why not pass on the alcohol and have water with dinner? Crazy I know, but with a heavy meal, alcohol usually leads to indigestion and an even more bloated feeling…go for the water!
3) Decisions, Decisions:
Seeing a table full of food can be overwhelming. You want to try everything plus have your favorite classics, but sometimes you need to make a decision and sacrifice. Are you going to want dessert? Then time to forgo an extra calorie filled side at dinner. It’s all about deciding what you really want and eating a normal amount of each thing.
