Which Thanksgiving Staple Will You Indulge In?

As much as we all like to talk about eating healthy on Thanksgiving day, there is always that one item (or two, or three) that you just can't resist. So which Thanksgiving treat is worth hitting the treadmill for few extra sessions?

I had never had suffing until today. And that, eclipsed my dessert portions. How come it took me 23 years to discover the greatness that is stuffing?!

i go for mashed taters, sweet potato casserole, and stuffing. i always stick to white meat and i don't like pumpkin or most fruit pies. so unless there is a blueberry, peach or some sort of chocolate pie...i'll be golden - mostly cuz i'll be hitting the gym before i eat and that always dampens my appetite.

My indulgence is going to be my mom's cranberry and apple sauce. It's so yummy! Plus, it's actually kind of good for you because of all the fresh cranberries in it. Oh, and I'll probably have some mashed potatoes as gravy though. I've never really liked gravy.

I am staying on plan for this Thanksgiving! I have mashed sweet potatoes, green beans, white turkey breast, and to top it all off a crustless sugar free pumpkin pie!

Definetly the stuffing. That's the best part, especially mixed in with veggies.

Pigging out is so gross. I can't do it. I'm just eating healthy like I always do.

All of the above except pie, sweet potato casserole and anything with gravy. I'm totally grossed out by sweets/pastries right now, so add to the list my aunt's homemade fudge and my mom's cookies. But stuffing, mashed potatoes and dark meat? Sure!!! And pass the ham while you're at it! I love being pregnant... haa haaa...

Mashed potatoes and dark meat. I'm bringing desserts that I don't like so I'm not tempted.

I'm planning to eat it all. My gym is even offering a special hour and a half spin class the day after for those of us who need to burn some extra calories.

No Thanksgiving for me this year. ;( There is a little cafe that is serving a Thanksgiving prix fixe though, so I am looking forward to trying their pumpkin bisque.

runnergeek, that's my plan too! I did some really tough suicide sprints yesterday and I'm going on a long run this afternoon. And then Friday I'll do some more running so hopefully it will all even out! ;)

yeah i'll be pigging out..but, i ran today and i'll run again tomorrow, so i am ok with the pig out for one day...although no sweet potato or dark meat. not a big fan of either.
