Enjoy Thanksgiving dinner without adding extra pounds By Deanna Sweat Extension Agem Holiday recipes are plentiful, yet recommendations for diners are often overlooked. While November and December are dubbed "the eating sea- son." adding extra pounds need not be a given. Survey the buffet or party table to idenii fy healtl D choices Mov- ing away fl-om the buffet table or other food source to reduce temptation. Fo-. cus on people, rather than food. to make a social event enjoyable "Eat a light'snack betbre attending a holiday gathering. Feeling slightly full. rather than hungry, can be helpful in managing party foods that often are higher in calories, fat and sugar." said Mary Mock Higgins. Kansas State University nutrition specialist, who offers these additional tips: ,Eat regu- lar meals and snacks to balance calo- ries throughout the day; -Choose a variety of health-promon ng foods that add color naturally, to your plate; .Opt for smaller serwngs with fewer calo- ries; If asked to host or contribute ton holiday meal or party, take a healthy alternative, such as a veggie tray with low-fat dip or whole grain crackers with sliced apples, pears or other fresh fruit: .Schedule physical activity to balance calories and manage stress. Be realistic, it's natural to want to enjoy the holiday foods, yet sobering to consider the calories consumed: Higgins computed a modest Thanks- giving dinner: three ounces of skinless roast turkey, four ounces (one-half cup) of mashed potatoes, two tablespoons of gravy, four ounces of green bean casserole, four ounces of honey-glazed carrots, dinner rolt with two teaspoons of soft margarine, relishes (including a stalk of celery, one ounce sweet pickle, one cinnamon-spiced apple ring, one tablespoon black olives, three table- spoons jellied cranberry sauce, and a sliceof pumpkin pie with a tablespoon of whipped topping; will have about 1.100 calories. 38 grams of fat, 150 grams carbohydrate and 40 grams of protein. Higgins. who is a registered dieti- cian and diabetes educator, recom- mended waiting 30 or more minutes after eating to allow time for digestion before moderate physical activity. A person weighing 154 pounds should plan on about four hours of walking at 3-1/2 miles per hour or 2 hours of jogging at 5 miles per hour to burn all of the calories consumed during the sample holiday meal The numbers may seem discourag- ing, yet going tar a walk after a meal can be a step in the right direction. For most adults, the Centers tbr Disease Control and Prevention recommend 30 minutes of physical activity most days for health. The goal is to balance calories with physical activity. r Courthouse News Jewell County Register of Deeds Thomas Edrick Burton and Loraine Burton to Benjamin F.
