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
Even with the addition of green beans, the fried onions, butter and cream of mushroom soup in this dish make it unhealthy. Henderiks says the best thing to do with this calorically high casserole is "chop it all up" and cook it into a stir fry. Once you've cooked some whole-wheat pasta, Henderiks says to add it to a pan with the chopped up casserole and some olive oil. Toss in some veggies like tomatoes, broccoli and mushrooms, then sprinkle it with some low-fat mozzarella or Parmesan cheese.
