Although the title of this post is “post-thanksgiving guilt”, what I am about to tell you is kind of the opposite of that. Granted that we all ate like we had never eaten before, until we flopped on the couch and felt so heavy that only a crane could lift us up. But not all was bad food, was it?!
Come to think about it, a typical thanksgiving dinner is as simple as it can get. Turkey cooked with almost no oil. Green beans which are obviously good for you. Potatoes contain starch but in this case they are simply boiled and mashed, which isnt all that unhealthy. In short there is nothing to feel guilty about if you stuck to the typical simple thanksgiving food. Now I cant speak for the bad kids who broke their promises and overloaded on the sugary delicacies.
Just like everybody else, I was sending my self on a guilt trip too, when I came across this fantastic article which talks about all the nutritious value the dinner items contain.
So dont spend another day feeling bad. Get into those workout clothes and get ready to look hot for that happening new years party you’ve been waiting for!
