Thanksgiving Recipe Makeover: How to Cut Calories at Thanksgiving Dinner
Save 1,273 calories and 92 grams of fat over the traditional version with this healthy Thanksgiving dinner makeover.
With all the great Thanksgiving dishes to taste, chances are you’ll eat far more calories on Turkey Day than you would at a typical dinner.
