With tomorrow being Thanksgiving it can be somewhat of a challenge to enjoy the holiday and all of its traditional foods while also staying healthy.
We have also briefly summarized the winners from the slideshow below:
White Turkey Meat
Selecting white turkey meat versus dark turkey meat will save you 50 calories and 4 grams of fat per 3 ounce serving.
Green Bean Casserole
Per 3/4 of a cup serving, traditional green bean casserole has over 124 calories less than Sweet Potato Casserole.
Pumpkin Pie per serving (1/8 of an inch thick slice) has around 95 calories less than an Apple Pie serving. Although these calories can be blamed on the Apple Pie’s thicker double crust.
Dinner Roll With Butter
The Dinner Roll With Butter has a total of 140 calories. While a 3/4 of a cup serving of traditional sausage stuffing can have 371 calories.
Gravy As a Turkey Sauce (!)
Gravy is actually a healthier section than cranberry sauce by about 80 calories per serving. Cranberry sauce typically has very high added sugars.
We hope that some of these figures help you in dining or planning your healthy (healthier) Thanksgiving Feast.
Have a Happy and Safe Thanksgiving Holiday from the team at Live Oak!
