White Bean Turkey Chili

Crowd-pleasing white bean chili from Cooking Light calls for canned beans and chicken broth, making prep convenient. Pureeing the bean mixture makes the soup thicker giving it more body. Cannelini beans will work in a pinch if you cannot find Great Northern beans.

What a Turkey Trot Earns You on Thanksgiving [Infographic]

what-a-turkey-trot-earns-you-at-the-table

Thanksgiving is almost here. For many of us, that means doing a turkey trot (or chase) in the morning, eating turkey (and everything else Thanksgiving dinner-related), followed by falling into a turkey-induced coma. Yes, the fourth Thursday in November is a turkey-themed mixed bag.

Probably the most rewarding thing you can do for yourself on Thanksgiving is to join your local turkey trot, and encourage your family members and friends to do the same. It’s social and active, and takes the edge off of any potential guilt one might feel going into dinner.

Turkey Trots have been an American tradition since 1896. Most Turkey Trot races take place in the morning, giving you plenty of time for cooking, celebrating and watching football. While we aren’t suggesting you should exercise to negate every single calorie, understanding how your body harnesses food for energy output can help you get on the right track to healthy living.

This infographic shows an estimate of calories burned during a Turkey Trot broken down into three weight classes and two race distances and how that might translate into Thanksgiving dinner.
