"Make Over My Thanksgiving Leftovers!"
What are you going to do with the insane amount of delicious, calorie-bomb Thanksgiving leftovers sitting in your fridge? Eat them, of course -- but only after giving each dish one of these easy, healthy upgrades
We thought of one way to make pumpkin pie even better: Add ice cream. How is this a healthy suggestion, you ask? Dubost says we need three servings of dairy a day, as it's an excellent source of calcium, vitamin D, and protein. And yes, ice cream counts as dairy. Just make sure you get double-churned, low-fat ice cream, she says, which whips air into the cream, making it less dense and more fluffy (read: less fattening). Top one scoop of ice cream with a couple tablespoons of pumpkin pie -- sans crust. And of course, the key to making dessert part of a healthy, balanced diet: Watch your portions.
