Thanksgiving is the best day.

It's a day of celebrating with family and friends.

But more importantly, it's a day for eating ALL THE FOOD.

THE THING IS: It's one thing to have a fun Thanksgiving. It's another thing to feel so stuffed that you can't move.


Eating all of your favorite Thanksgiving foods — and getting a little buzzed, if that's your jam — is the whole point, and you shouldn't have to give that up! But, overdoing it can kind of ruin the whole holiday, especially if you're balled up on the couch before dessert even comes out.

What do you do to keep a healthy balance on Thanksgiving? Maybe you eat a healthy, filling breakfast.

Recipe: Skillet Sweet Potato Frittata

Maybe it's a family tradition to run a race on Thanksgiving morning.

Maybe you've just learned how to pace yourself at the table.
