EWG: Healthy Thanksgiving Tips 

The Environmental Working Group has five amazing tips for you to keep in mind when preparing for a healthy Thanksgiving feast. 

  • Stuffing is always a holiday favorite, but did you know that store-bought stuffing mixes often have 30 or more ingredients, including preservatives from EWG’s Dirty Dozen list of food additives? More than half of the stuffing rated on Food Scores are likely to contain ingredients of high or moderate concern, so we recommend making your own or using EWG’s Food Scores to pick one of the top-scoring products.
  • Turkeys are often fed antibiotics and growth promoters in their feed to encourage development of lean muscle instead of fat. (No wonder they look the way they do!) Consider going organic and antibiotic-free this year and check out our guide to decoding turkey labels to help you choose a better bird this Thanksgiving.

However and whatever you choose to buy or eat, the most important thing to remember, is to be happy and Thankful.
