Thanksgiving Recipe Makeover: How to Cut Calories at Thanksgiving Dinner (Page 6)

5. Stuffing

Calories Saved: 187

Stuffing is best made from scratch. Instead of prepackaged stuffing mix, start with good, wholesome ingredients. This sausage stuffing has about half the calories and 87% less saturated fat than traditional sausage stuffing because we use more apples and vegetables and less bread and sausage. Plus we go with whole-wheat bread for added fiber and turkey sausage because it has less fat than regular pork sausage.
