Healthy Makeovers for Your 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

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. And of course, the key to making dessert part of a healthy, balanced diet is to watch your portions.
Top one scoop of double-churned, low-fat ice cream with a few tablespoons of pumpkin pie (minus the crust) for a less fattening version of two of our favorite treats.
