Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Recipes For The Morning After

Perfect Post-Thanksgiving Recipes For The Morning After

Thanksgiving weekend can be viewed through a couple different lenses. Some people see the weekend as a chance to indulge as much as possible and deal with the repercussions later, while others only gorge their faces on Thanksgiving. If this holiday meal had a feeling, it would be comparable to uncomfortable bloating. Since Thanksgiving is all about eating, shouldn’t the following day be dedicated to warding off feelings of indulgence?

There’s no use crying about all the carbs, fats, and calories you are going to eat during the Thanksgiving meal. It will most likely happen and that’s the end of the story. The day after is about getting back on the horse and helping your body recover with nutrient-dense meals that are easily digestible. Don’t sit on the couch binging a Netflix show while eating three more slices of pie. That time is over and it is time to supply the body with smoothie bowls, overnight oats, chia pudding, a fruit salad, or detox smoothies & juices.

Give Your Leftovers Away

One of the best ways to avoid overeating through the rest of the holiday weekend is by giving your leftovers to the many people who attend the meal. The less Thanksgiving food you have in your fridge, the better off you are health wise. If you are making the meal for you and your family, there is heartfelt option to portion out what you and your family want to eat, and make plates of food to hand out to the homeless in your town or city.

Bouncing Back

When you bounce back into healthy foods the day after the big meal, you have a better chance at restarting your metabolism. In doing so, you kick start peristalsis and boost energy levels. These healthy meals may even inspire you to do an at-home workout routine while watching TV. Whip up the following recipes the day after Thanksgiving, or throughout the weekend, to get your health back on track.
