Negative-Calorie Holiday Workout and Caramelized Onion & Kale Sweet Potato-Parsnip Mash

Happy Thanksgiving! Can you believe it came up so quickly?

One thing I love about Thanksgiving is the binge eating, regretting that third helping of turkey, and feeling horrible mentally and physically afterward.

But not this Thanksgiving.

I know you’ve been there and done that with the overeating, overindulging, over-drinking(?), over-everythingbut let’s be honest, when was the last time you over-exercised on Thanksgiving?

Perhaps you did a Turkey Trot 5, 10, or 15 K run. Perhaps you didn’t stuff your face silly during the main meal. Perhaps you missed your holiday morning CrossFit class. Perhaps…

Perhaps you need a healthy recipe and a rockin’ workout to make your Thanksgiving Day complete.

Well, now you have both.

I served this dish with an incredible thinly slider, Tamari-soaked, then roasted portabello mushroom. SO. GOOD.

While your healthy, veggie-filled mash is cooking, complete your body-weight, no equipment workout!

This workout can be done anywhere, at any time, in any order so it’s always new and different!



Try this one out and let me know what you think! I’ve been LOVING this workout. I take it with me to the gym or the park or do this one at home- always shuffling the deck well and pushing through! You should be drenched at the end.

What is your healthy Thanksgiving meal contribution list year?

What workout(s) are you planning on doing this week?

Tried the workout? What did you think?

    And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like a few of the responses look like written by brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional places, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  • Excellent post. I was checking continuously this weblog and I’m inspired! Very useful information specially the last phase 🙂 I handle such info a lot. I was looking for this certain information for a very lengthy time. Thanks and good luck.

  • Just pinned this, it can come in handy for Christmas too. I’ll make the dish, but the workout looks a little too crazy for my knees, I already work them too hard when I do my jumps skating. I didn’t have to cook this Thanksgiving but my family made a very healthy and delicious meal: broiled romanesco, sweet potatoes with cranberry sauce, salmon or turkey, and GF apple crisp for dessert. On my Thanksgiving week visit I did get a little exercise here and there with family like mellow walks on the track and a bike ride. On my own I got in a couple of sessions of figure skating which were really fun.
