Getting Your Mind Right

So much of weight loss is mental. In fact, I would argue that losing weight is more of a mental challenge than it is a physical one. Most people can complete a prescribed exercise routine if they know it’s going to give them results. However, the minute that food craving shows itself, the bad habits return in full force.

Before we even get into the knitty gritty details on how to lose weight, we need get our mind right so that we have reasonable expectations. That way we can be prepared for all the twists and turns weight loss throws our way.

Slow Down on the Sodium

Americans eat more than double the daily amount of sodium recommended by the American Heart Association. Too much sodium increases the risk of heart disease, stroke and other health problems, but this excess isn’t just from salting at the table. Americans get most of their sodium — 77 percent — from processed foods. If you choose these foods, compare the labels and look for lower-sodium versions.

Black Beans

A cup of black beans packs a whopping 15 grams of satisfying protein and doesn't contain any of the saturated fat found in other protein sources, like red meat.

Chorizo and Roasted Poblano Wild Rice Stuffing

Hot cooked wild rice is incredibly nutty and fragrant, a perfect counter to smoky paprika, quick roasted poblano peppers, and spicy fresh chorizo. Look for Mexican chorizo (like ground beef or pork) rather than Spanish chorizo (cured sausage in casings). The rice will absorb the drippings from the sausage as the two bake together in the casserole dish. If you can’t find Mexican chorizo, try hot Italian pork or turkey sausage. We treat the rice the same as a bread stuffing—binding it with a mixture of stock, eggs, and butter—for a richer, more cohesive stuffing that will brown beautifully in the pan.

Lemon-Herb Sheet Pan Roasted Vegetables

A mix of colorful root vegetables may be your star side. Peeled, prechopped butternut squash saves time, but pieces tend to be irregular and small--we prefer peeling and cubing it yourself.

Kale and Butternut Squash Stuffing

Stuffing can easily be a hugely unhealthy addition to the Thanksgiving table, but this recipe redeems itself in more ways than one. In this healthier version, we swapped out boring ol’ white bread for whole wheat and pork sausage for turkey. Then we threw in kale, leeks, and butternut squash, just for good measure.
