Cut 851 calories from Thanksgiving dinner (without sacrificing taste!)
I adore Thanksgiving, but the holiday quickly loses its luster
when I start thinking about all the extra calories I’m consuming by
eating my favorite foods.
Luckily, EatingWell gave
Thanksgiving dinner a healthy makeover that keeps calories (and
my diet) in check. 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! Make these healthy
dishes with your family and friends this year—and save some
calories for the next big holiday.
