Ideas for a Heart-Healthy Thanksgiving

Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy, green bean casserole, rolls, and pumpkin pie must mean it’s Thanksgiving!  The biggest meal of the year where we pile our plates high with mouth-watering food. 

However, overindulging on Thanksgiving fare that is full of fat, salt, and sugar is unwise for those with heart issues.  Just because one cannot indulge, he/she should not miss out on the feast.  There are plenty of healthy substitutions that will tickle your taste buds. 

See the doctors at Carolina Heart and Leg Center, P.A. to discuss any concerns and they can give you the roadmap to a heart-healthy Thanksgiving dinner.
