Healthy Thanksgiving Leftover Ideas


Did the holidays sneak up on you this year? Are you worried that it will put the kibosh on your current weight loss plans? If you are one of my dedicated clients, you have heard me say over and over again that it's not the holiday itself that threatens our weight loss success, but what happens the day(s) leading up to, or even more so, the days after, that will affect our waist line and health. With that being said, and because I hate food waste, I have included a few healthy thanksgiving leftover recipes to help you along. What you do with the leftover pie is up to you! Hint........send it home with someone else.....after enjoying a small slice for yourself!

Leftover Stuffin' Muffins

This recipe is a great way to incorporate several leftover yummies with good portion control. Pair two muffins with a side salad for a filling and balanced Black Friday lunch or dinner.

Turkey-Cranberry Salad

How could I not include turkey salad. You have probably been making this for years, but skip the mayo and swap with non fat Greek yogurt for a lighter option.

Soup is the perfect solution to hearty fall leftovers. Boil some stock, add the goodies and this comfort meal is ready in minutes.
