4 Tips to Staying Healthy On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is right around the corner! As you get ready to enjoy a festive time with your family and friends, use these tips to stay healthy!

1. Stick to your healthy routines– Treat Thanksgiving like any other normal day – workout in the morning and do not skip breakfast. Make sure to load up on protein!

2. Get up from the table – After you finish eating your meal, move away from the table! If you continue to sit in front of food, you end up eating what is in front of you – even though you’re not hungry!

3. Move your body– After the meal take a walk with your family or dog. Play with the kids in the yard – try moving around rather than lying around or taking a nap. If it’s chilly outside- turn on the X-box or Wii U and play any games that get your body moving!

4. If you decide to ignore these tips and over indulge – Do not feel guilty, do not kill yourself at the gym and do not dwell on what you ate – go back to your normal routine the next day.

How to make a Thanksgiving turkey

Ingredients
  • 1 12-20 pound turkey
  • 1 onion , peeled and quartered
  • 1 lemon , quartered
  • 1 apple , quartered
  • .75 ounce container fresh rosemary
  • .75 ounce container fresh thyme
  • .75 ounce container fresh sage
  • For the herb butter:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 6-8 cloves garlic , minced
  • fresh chopped herbs

Instructions

  1. If the turkey is frozen: Thaw in the fridge, 24 hours for every 5 pounds of Turkey. I like to give myself 1 extra day, just to be safe.
  2. Remove the thawed turkey from the fridge 1 hour before roasting, to let it come to room temperature.
  3. Adjust your oven rack so the turkey will sit in the center of the oven. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  4. Make the herb butter by combining room temperature butter, minced garlic, salt, pepper, one tablespoon fresh chopped rosemary, one tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, and half a tablespoon of fresh chopped sage. (You’ll use the remaining fresh herbs for stuffing inside the cavity of the turkey)
  5. Remove turkey from packaging and remove the neck and giblets from the inside the cavities of the bird. (Reserve them for gravy, if you want, or discard them). Pat the turkey very dry with paper towels.
  6. Season the cavity of the turkey with salt and pepper. Stuff it with the quartered lemon, onion and apple and leftover herbs.
  7. Use your fingers to loosen and lift the skin above the breasts (on the top of the turkey) and smooth a few tablespoons of the herb butter underneath.
  8. Tuck the wings of the turkey underneath the turkey and set the turkey on a roasting rack inside a roasting pan*.
  9. Microwave the remaining herb butter mixture for 30 seconds (it doesn’t need to be completely melted--just really softened). Use a basting brush to brush the remaining herb butter all over the outside of the turkey, legs and wings.
  10. Roast at 325 degrees F for about 13-15 minutes per pound, or until internal temperature (inserted on middle of thigh and breast) reaches about 165 degrees. 
  11. (I remove the turkey from the oven once it reaches 160 degrees. Then, I tent it with foil, and let it rest on the counter. It will continue cooking under the foil, to reach 165 degrees F.)
  12. ***Check the turkey about halfway through cooking, and once the skin gets golden brown, cover the top of the turkey with tinfoil, to protect the breast meat from overcooking. Alternately, you could start cooking the turkey with it tented in foil, then during the last hour or so of cooking you can take the foil off to let the turkey brown.
  13. Allow turkey to rest for 20-30 minutes before carving.
  14. Reserve any drippings and juice remaining in your roasting pan to make turkey gravy.
WHAT SIZE TURKEY TO BUY FOR THANKSGIVING DINNER:
First things first: Buy about 1.5 pounds of turkey per person. (So if you’re feeding 6 people, buy at least a 10 lb. turkey). That way you’ll have leftovers. 

HOW TO THAW YOUR TURKEY:
Make sure and allow plenty of time for your turkey to thaw! A good rule of thumb is to allow one day in the fridge for ever 5 pounds of turkey. I always give myself one extra day, just to be safe. Set the turkey on a cookie sheet or pan, to catch any liquid the turkey may drip as it defrosts in the fridge.

DON’T WASH THE TURKEY.
If you wash your turkey in your sink you will just contaminate your sink. Remove the turkey from it’s packaging, dry it off with some paper towels, and then prepare it for the oven. Any bacteria on the turkey will be killed in the hot oven while it bakes.

DON’T BRINE THE TURKEY.
If you buy a high-quality turkey from the store (like Butterball or Norbest), then brining the turkey is an unnecessary step. You can do it if you want, but you can still achieve a deliciously moist turkey without brining it. However, if the turkey is wild, you should brine it the night before to make sure it will be moist and flavorful.

DON’T BASTE THE TURKEY.
Basting is really unnecessary to produce a beautiful golden brown turkey. It also requires you to constantly open the oven, which causes the oven to loose heat and the turkey to take longer to cook–which could lead to a dry turkey. By smearing an herb butter mixture over the outer and inner skin of the turkey you will ensure the skin will brown beautifully, and taste amazing. 

DON’T COOK STUFFING INSIDE THE TURKEY.
If you try to put stuffing/dressing inside the cavity of the bird, the turkey will be overcooked by the time the stuffing reaches a temperature that’s safe to eat. Instead, cook your stuffing in a casserole dish.  Then you can fill the cavity of the turkey with things that will give it flavor (and add flavor to the drippings/stock): salt and pepper and any mixture of onion, apple, carrots, celery, or citrus. 

DO TEST THE TURKEY WITH A THERMOMETER.
The only way to really tell if the turkey is cooked (165 degrees F), is by using a thermometer (I love this one). Test the turkey right from the oven—if it reaches 160 degrees F, I take it out and tent it with foil. It will continue to cook inside the foil tent to make up that extra 5 degrees.

DO LET THE TURKEY REST.
After removing the turkey from the oven, let it rest for at least 15 minutes, or up to 40 minutes (that gives you some extra time if you need to bake or warm anything else in the oven). If you’re using the drippings for gravy, remove the turkey from its pan, to a cutting board and tent it with foil while it rests there. If you’re not using the drippings, then just leave the turkey in the pan and tent with foil.

YOU DON’T NEED AN EXPENSIVE ROASTING PAN.
If you have a big metal roasting pan, great! If you don’t, no worries. Just use a casserole dish big enough to fit the bird, or buy a $1 disposable foil roasting pan from Walmart (then you can throw it away after). Place a bunch of chopped veggies on the bottom of your pan. The veggies will act like the wire rack in a regular roasting pan by elevating the turkey slightly. Place the turkey right on top of the chopped veggies.

DO SAVE THE TURKEY DRIPPINGS.
After the turkey is finished cooking there will be juice and browned cooked bits at the bottom of your roasting pan. You can reserve all of it for making turkey gravy. You can also use the leftover neck and giblets you pull from the turkey when you remove it from the packaging, to make giblet gravy.  The most flavorful gravy! Your grandma would be proud 😉

Notes

*If you don't have a roasting pan, use a disposable foil roasting pan. Place a bed of chopped veggies —carrots, onion and celery work well— in the bottom of the pan, and set the turkey on top of them.
