I originally wrote this post for The Huffington Post, but I just HAD to share it with you all as well!
A Turkey Day sans plates on plates of pumpkin pie, fluffy sausage stuffing, sweet tater soufflé, and green bean casserole would be just plain wrong. Thanksgiving is a mighty celebration of calories and you’d be lying if you said you haven’t fallen victim to over-indulging at least once on this special day.
But eating fried onions from a can and MSG-laden condensed mushroom soup is NOT written in the laws of this cherished feast. Did you know that the typical American consumes a whopping 4,500 calories worth of turkey and all the trimmings on this special day? With these healthier, whole foods-based Thanksgiving recipes, you can focus on stuffing the turkey, not yourself!
