Home Meals Ideas 4 Healthier Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

This year has come and gone and we have already arrived at the “SuperBowl” of cooking – Thanksgiving.

Many people have a lot of angst around this time of year because we while we want to enjoy our favorite, family indulgent recipes, we don’t want our enjoyment to totally derail our healthy eating efforts.

But you don’t have to! It’s fine to enjoy and then get right back on track!

Here are 5 easy ideas to help you salvage SOME of your Thanksgiving food so you can reduce food waste.

Calories and macronutrients will need to be calculated by you.  Since recipes for foods will vary by household, I just want to share some ideas that may help you take some of the food and re-package it in a much more calorie-conscious way.

I got all of the ingredients from my local Kroger grocery store so the additional items you will need for the recipes should be easy to find.
