Cyc Sweats: Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes

It can definitely be a challenge to eat healthy during the holiday season. So we thought we’d give you a helping hand, and we rounded up some of our favorite healthy Thanksgiving recipes, the first of which is from NYC Cycologist, Adina Puteh.

Here’s what Adina had to say about her recipe of deviled eggs:
Even though it’s often overlooked, this appetizer is important to me because I had it at my very first American Thanksgiving just a few years ago in Connecticut. Having grown up overseas I had never celebrated Thanksgiving before. So it was a special treat–AND I was shocked how tasty a simple hard boiled egg could be! And because they’re a very filling, protein-packed appetizer, a few deviled eggs can help keep you from overeating during the main meal.
