Thanksgiving-Ready with Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics

Roasted turkey background, wording says "Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics: Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup"

Thanksgiving carries different symbols for many Americans -- family, history, and gratitude among them.

One of the most time-honored -- and loveliest -- traditions of Thanksgiving also includes cooking and gathering around the table for an overflowing feast.

Because of this, some Sound Medical Weight Loss & Aesthetics patients sometimes approach the Thanksgiving holiday with a mix of emotions -- excitement, anxiety and even fear of the unknown.

We're here to help.

We've rounded up our favorite healthy and delicious Thanksgiving recipes for you below.  They'll help you celebrate Thanksgiving Day while still feeling in control and completely nourished.
