I adore Thanksgiving, but I don’t adore all the extra calories I consume by eating my favorite foods.
Luckily, the EatingWell Test Kitchen cooks gave the traditional Thanksgiving dinner a healthy makeover that keeps calories in check. With a few simple substitutions, and without changing the classic dishes we all expect at Thanksgiving dinner, we shaved off 851 calories from the entire meal. Best of all, the tricks and techniques used to make these 5 recipes lighter don’t sacrifice taste. Here’s how we did it:

When it comes to bringing an appetizer to a party, I know I can never go wrong with deviled eggs. The last time I brought a double batch of them to a party (48 servings!), people started rushing me…but not to say “Hi,” give hugs and kisses, etc. Instead it was more like a stampede with exclamations of “Oh my god, you made deviled eggs!” People were grabbing the little puppies straight off the platter—it was clean 15 minutes later.

Recently I haven’t had a ton of time to cook. But just because I don’t have much time, doesn’t mean I throw up my hands and eat frozen dinners. I just simplify. I make sure I have plenty of veggies on hand and then go from there. Pizza is one of my regular standbys. I especially love green pizza loaded up with anything from arugula and broccoli to parsley, chard or kale.

It’s no surprise that I love a potluck—I am a food editor, after all. Potlucks mean the chance to get to try tons of different dishes. But there are always a couple that I wish I hadn’t tried. So what if I could orchestrate a dream potluck with a guest list of great chefs? Each chef would bring a dish. The spread would be fantastic! I can’t bring a bunch of chefs over to your house for dinner, but I can help make this fantasy a reality. And that’s just what I did for the May/June issue of EatingWell Magazine: a virtual celebrity-chef potluck, with a great take-along party recipe from each chef.
