Delicious and nutritious holiday meals

By Kate- Dietitian

DAHLC-8753Planning your Thanksgiving day menu?  Include at least 2 vegetables. Adding more color and variety to your meal:

  • Looks great! The visual appeal can enhance the enjoyment of the meal.
  • Keeps calories in check! Two servings or larger portions of vegetables take more space on the plate leaving less for higher calorie foods.
  • Fills you up! You might not be looking for seconds if you fill up on the volume and fiber from vegetables.
  • Flavor! Roasted vegetables are delicious. Roast them with turkey for better all around flavor in the meal.
