Turkey Tetrazzini

For our healthy take on turkey Tetrazzini, we use low-fat milk and skip the five tablespoons of butter that's often in the sherry-Parmesan sauce. As a result, we slash calories and fat in half, and reduce saturated fat by a whopping 80 percent. Even better, we transformed the dish into a fuss-free sauté that's quick enough to prepare even after a busy day.

Chipotle Turkey & Swiss Sandwich

This better-for-you sandwich is made with whole wheat bread and reduced-fat mayonnaise and cheese, so you can feel great about your lunch choice.
