Happy weekend! It is the last weekend before Thanksgiving, and we know it can be a really busy time of year (and it is just getting started!). With all of the holiday parties coming up, and more and more holidays and get-togethers, it can be difficult to stay healthier, and not just throw your routines out the window! Even we live a very regimented and healthy lifestyle, but with stress and lots of family and friend time, it can be tricky!We wanted to share 3 things we are doing this Thanksgiving (more tips in this post), plus some plant-based recipes we will be trying out!To be honest, we will be wearing something like this super comfy outfit for Thanksgiving. Of course, it is fun to get all dressed up, but since we are usually working a lot during the week of Thanksgiving (and eat a tonnnnn of food), we like to keep it casual. These Adidas PureBoost Sneakers are most definitely our favorites right now. We shared more about them in this post, but we have them in THREE colors, and haven’t stopped wearing them since we bought them!They are lightweight, great for running, training, lifting weights, or walking, and that is why we love this pair! No need to switch out to different types of sneakers for different workouts with these. We honestly wear these straight from the gym to errands or lunch.
We wanted to share three things we are doing to stay healthier:
- STAYING ACTIVE: we may not make it to the gym, but we will definitely be going on walks with our families throughout the week. If it is too chilly, we love walking in a mall while we browse around!
- DRINK LOTS OF WATER AND HOT TEAS: when we are busy, we tend to not drink enough, or stay hydrated. We are going to be sipping on lots of water and hot teas. The more you drink (in between meals) the fuller you will feel, and less likely you will be to drink liquid calories from cocktails or other things! If you are going to be making cocktails, try to drink a lot of water with them!
- GET SAUCES AND DRESSINGS ON THE SIDE: this is a game changer. Sauces can be super yummy and flavorful, but it is also a lot of hidden fat and extra calories. We always get ours on the side and use as much as we want with our forks, rather than dumping ALL of it on our plates or dishes.
We also found some plant-based recipes we will be making that we wanted to share with you!
These Roasted Carrots with Farro, Chickpeas, and Herbed Creme Fraiche looks DELISH! We love roasted carrots.
Love a good quinoa salad and this Herbed Quinoa & Chickpea Salad with Lemon-Tahini sounds incredible!
We can’t wait to try this Cauliflower Rice Stuffing.
These Maple Roasted Brussels Sprouts are definitely a must!
