My Thanksgiving was filled with games of pool, bubbly wines, lots of food [ I definitely still tried to use portion control ], my beautiful family [ dogs too! ] & ended with a tryptophan coma. Per usual Michael and I attended both of our families Thanksgiving dinners, which was hectic but amazing. Here are some ways to utilize leftovers in a health conscious way.
Skinny Thanksgiving Leftovers Ideas:
+ Turkey Tacos: Use strips of turkey and place in a whole wheat tortilla. Add low-fat cheese, lettuce & tomatoes.
+ Cranberry Flaxseed Granola: Take granola [ I prefer Ezekiel cereal ] add cranberry sauce & flaxseed.
+ Green Bean Quinoa Pasta: Add green beans [ or any leftover veg ] to quinoa pasta. Sprinkle chili flakes & parmesan cheese.
+ Veggie Soup: Heat all veggies stove top and add a low-sodium chicken stock. Add a squeeze of lemon on top.
+ Pumpkin Pie Fruit Bowl: Stir in two scoops of pumpkin pie filling to a bowl of mixed berries. It’s delicious!
