I don't have any main dishes to share - just have turkey and you'll be fine!  But I do have a few healthy side dishes that you could serve and some meals that can be made with leftover turkey.  Maybe you'll find a healthy idea that you can add to your current Thanksgiving menu!

  1. Some great choices! I'll have to try some of those.

    And great job on maintaining. One year my goal for the holidays was just to maintain. I wanted to enjoy the holidays, but also learn through them.

    Keep up the good work!
