Creating a Healthy Thanksgiving – It IS Possible!

Creating a Healthy Thanksgiving – It IS Possible!

I love Thanksgiving. It’s a holiday all about gathering together with friends and family, and all I remember from being a kid was how FUN it was to be with a big group of people I love, all in one place.

These days we do two Thanksgivings – one with Mr. Big’s family and then one at my grandparents’ home in my hometown. Mr. Big’s family does a big Italian-influenced Thanksgiving with soup, antipasto and then turkey. They used to do a lasagna course too, but now they do it the next day.  At my grandparents’ house there is a serious cocktail hour-and-a-half and then a full dinner with a wild turkey someone harvested, and then the regular domestic variety from the store.

So what I’m saying is, there’s a LOT of food that day, and I do everything I can to keep myself on track!

I’ve put together some delicious recipes to help you cut calories or SmartPoints, without giving up your Thanksgiving favorites! Check them out:
