Being a healthy blog, we highly encourage living a healthy lifestyle. Now, we know that people like to occasionally indulge in unhealthy activities, so instead of ignoring it, we will embrace it and give you healthier options.

As most of you all know, Thanksgiving Eve is the biggest night to go out and celebrate with friends and family! So, this thanksgiving eve, be sure to be responsible when you go out.

If you do go out and drink, try to be healthy and go for the healthier alcoholic beverages.

Since we are proud supporters of Pittsburgh local businesses, we encourage you to support Pittsburgh businesses as well. AND since vodka is one of the healthier options of alcohol to choose from, we would like to give a shout out to Clique, a Pittsburgh-based business whose speciality is vodka. They are even coming out with a new black bottle that will be available within the next day or two.

Happy Leafy Thanksgiving !

Hey,
This post is going to be a short one but I just couldn’t resist to share it since tomorrow is Thanksgiving and maybe somebody will use those ideas to boost regular holiday menu with some greens. So. even though this article considers to be a Vegetarian option for Thanksgiving, I personally not being vegetarian thought that those recipes can be nice addition as Thanksgiving doesn’t necessarily have to be all about turkey. My favorite recipe is the first one: Kale Salad With Butternut Squash, Cranberries and Pepitas. But the other ones also sound delicious. So, try something new this year’s Thanksgiving which is also loaded with healthy nutrients.
