If you’re worried about prepping the main course for your holiday feastravaganza, there’s no need to panic! We’ve got a total fail-safe recipe for you with this festive twist on your traditional turkey meatloaf.
Here’s a tasty twist on your traditional Thanksgiving meal, this turkey flatbread is a great option for any potluck holiday event or “Friendsgiving” gathering you might be attending. Flatbreads are also the ultimate use for leftovers! Instead of re-heating your same old plate of Thanksgiving dinner, or ordering out for pizza, just get a little creative and use this recipe as your guide for inspiration.
There are two types of people in this world; those who liberally dress their Thanksgiving dinner in gravy and those who prefer a healthy dollop of cranberry sauce instead. In spite of my sweet tooth, when it comes to roast dinners I’m pretty traditional and typically lean towards a generous pour of gravy. Don’t let it’s liquid consistency fool you though, as it can be far from light when it comes to calories.
Thanksgiving in a bite! These lean turkey meatballs make great appetizers, or for a more casual gathering you could use these instead of roasting a full turkey. They are super easy to freeze too; just arrange them in a single layer on a non-stick baking sheet and place in the freezer until frozen (this prevents them from sticking to each other). Then transfer them to freezer bags. Remove and warm in pasta sauce or in the microwave as needed.
While I love summer, when the weather starts cooling off I look forward to cooking up comforting bowls of hearty chili. I dug out my slow cooker for this one, making it a great dish to prep in the morning and allow to simmer away all day. Perfect for a busy week night or if you’re entertaining guests as this recipe will fill your home with deliciously enticing aromas.
I don’t know about you but I LOVE serving my meals in bowls. Why’s that? Well because there’s something very visually satisfying about a bowl full to the brim of food. My belly is half-way satisfied before I even take my first bite! The name behind the buddha bowl encapsulates exactly that imagery with your enormous mound of food supposedly looking just like the Buddha’s giant belly.
Holiday greens are typically just alternative vessels for cramming even more delicious fat-based foods into our mouths – hello Green Bean Casserole and Bacon Parmesan Brussel Sprouts! ? In an effort to help you guys reserve your valuable fat macros for other indulgences, I thought a little palate-cleansing slaw would be a great accompaniment to your Thanksgiving or holiday dinner.
This is a perfect side dish for your Thanksgiving feast! You can get all of the creamy cheesy goodness of potato gratin with a whole lot less carbs thanks to cauliflower! Plus the egg whites pack a protein punch, something that can be hard to get enough of during the holidays.
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard someone tell me that they don’t eat carbs but then I’ll see them happily munch their way through an açaí bowl. People who don’t track their food don’t know any better but if you do track your macros, you’ll know just how calorically dense these bowls can be! What you probably thought of as being super healthy and good for you, you’ve now discovered is often super high in sugar and can easily set you back 100 grams carbs or more!
