Healthy Makeovers for Your Holiday Leftovers
What are you going to do with the insane amount of delicious, calorie-bomb holiday leftovers sitting in your fridge? Eat them, of course -- but only after giving each dish one of these easy, healthy upgrades
Indulging in one massive dinner a year isn't going to do too much damage to your diet. However, those inevitable Thanksgiving leftovers are another story. And while it's tempting to eat your way through the contents of your fridge until the last scrap of stuffing is gone, we've decided to try something different this year.
In an effort to be a bit more health-conscious the day after shamelessly gorging, we asked culinary nutritionist Diane Henderiks, R.D., regular on-air contributor for ABC'S "Good Morning America," to show us how to give those decadent Thanksgiving leftovers a healthy makeover.
We also asked Joy Dubost, Ph.D, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to weigh in on the nutritional value of these Thanksgiving leftover recipe makeovers so you can keep on eating, guilt-free.
