At Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating, we believe in enjoying
the holidays and celebrating with the comforting foods we all associate with
this time of year. Altering traditional holiday items to make them healthier

significant improvement for you heart health and that morning after bloat!
You don’t have to go off our plan this year to enjoy your
traditional Thanksgiving dinner. This year you can enjoy it AND feel good about
it! Now that is something to be
