Ways to Be Grateful, Healthy and Wise
Whether you are cooking for your family, going out to eat or having a celebration at someone’s house Thanksgiving, you can have fun—and stay healthy. Consider some of these helpful hints:
If you have small children, plan ahead to have healthy snacks handy at home, at the restaurant or at grandmother’s house.
Plan to do something outside with your children, friends or family. Join a charity walk, stroll across the Walnut Street Bridge or enjoy an afternoon hike. We live in the perfect place to combine celebrating with staying healthy. Whether you’re downtown, on a mountain or in a valley, nature is never far away.
Plan for what to do with the kids while you’re cooking. Invite another family or friend to switch off with kids and you can take turns or let a visiting relative take a “Chattanooga adventure” with the kids while you are cooking.
