5. Be sweet on sweet potatoes: Sweet potatoes are a source of vitamin A, vitamin C, potassium and fiber. A healthy way to cook them is to cut them in half, sprinkle with orange juice and a little brown sugar, and pop them into the oven. 6. Pick a pumpkin: Pumpkin is low in fat, low in calories and loaded with potassium, vitamin A and vitamin C. Make pumpkin pies with canned, evaporated fat-free milk, half the amount of sugar in the recipe, a graham cracker crust, and light or fat-free whipped topping for a light and tasty dessert. 7. Stuff with more veggies and less bread: Opt for less bread in your stuffing and add more onions, celery, vegetables, or fruits such as dried cranberries or apples to make a lower-calorie version of the old standby. 8. Sacrifice fat, not flavor: Use low-fat buttermilk or low-sodium chicken stock in place of cream or whole milk in dishes like mashed potatoes, whipped sweet potatoes, or butternut squash. 9. Steam and mash: Try mashing or pureeing steamed or boiled cauliflower with low-fat milk. It’s a flavorful substitute for mashed potatoes and can help balance an otherwise potato-rich meal! 10. Walk it off: When the leftovers are wrapped and the dishes are done, the Thanksgiving meal you just ate can leave you feeling more stuffed than the turkey. Walking one mile, or taking an extra 2,000 steps, can burn up to 100 calories. So, if you eat six ounces of turkey, try walking a little more than three miles to burn it off. When thinking that extra piece of pecan pie means walking about four and a half miles, a second helping may not seem as appealing. G Share this article with your friends.
