2. Gravy

Calories Saved: 64

Citrus brightens up gravy. There’s no need to add fat to a gravy. Just a squeeze of fragrant Meyer lemon makes this easy pan gravy extraordinary. Meyer lemons taste like a cross between a regular lemon and an orange; they add perky citrus flavor to both the gravy and the roasted-garlic-and-lemon-rubbed turkey. They’re in season starting in November; find them at well-stocked supermarkets.
