It’s that time of year again … Thanksgiving!! If you’re anything like me you can’t wait to indulge in some of your favorite holiday meals, and if you’re anything like me you’ve waited until the last minute to do your food shopping. #Fail! But last minute food shopping doesn’t mean all hope is lost for a healthy meal, especially when it comes to the main event.
It’s not totally impossible to pick a healthy turkey for your family to nosh on this holiday season and with these tips you’ll be able to get your gobble on with a little less guilt!
