Yes, there is eating before the big eating holiday.
Okay people, it’s game time. T-minus 48 hours until the big Turkey day and you’ve got a whole two days worth of eating until your body is ready for mountains of Buttermilk Mashed Potatoes. The goal of this ‘pretox’ (the opposite of a detox) is to prep yourself as best as you can by consuming more vegetables and whole grains and balancing out the pats of butter you’re definitely going to put all over those freshly baked Honey Whole-Wheat Pull-Apart Rolls. We all partake during the holidays, it’s cool. In the interest of full disclosure, this meal plan is just a guide; our nutrition experts cannot back the health benefits of an Internet created term such as ‘Pre-Tox’. If anything, we hope to provide a framework for getting you ready for the holiday of eating, sitting, and eating again.
Two Days Ahead - Breakfast
It’s going to be a big week, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to some breakfast tacos. Opting for the smaller, whole wheat tortillas makes you feel like you’re getting more bang for your breakfast buck. Plus, packing more vegetables into the egg scramble makes the cheesy sprinkle go farther.
