BIG Nutrition: Thankful and safe


BIG Nutrition: Thankful and safe

turkey-birdWe just finished the nutrition challenge and Thanksgiving is here! You won’t hear me saying, ”Eat a baked apple with whipped cream instead of apple pie and you will save 450 calories!” Ridiculous! Enjoy a piece of pie and move on. However, I will share with you some links for thawing, cooking, and handling cooked turkey so that you don’t introduce foodborne illness into your holiday. According to the CDC, nearly 1 in 6 Americans experiences a foodborne illness each year so these helpful links are important for keeping your family and friends safe.

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving BIG members! You make CrossFit Boston Iron and Grit a fun, supportive, and rewarding community!

Happy and healthful eating,

Donna G. Pertel, MEd, RD, LDN
