They call it stuffing for a reason. This is one of the fattiest items on the Thanksgiving spread, so be sure to steer clear of this one.
If you dine on turkey, opt for the white meat, which can save you 50 calories and 4 grams of fat.
Canned Cranberry Sauce
Although cranberries are natural, the added sugars can throw your healthy meal offtrack. Surprisingly, turkey gravy is a slightly healthier choice at 30 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per 1/4-cup serving.
These are easy to keep eating and never stop, and pile on the calories and carbs. If you must, try one roll and go very easy on the butter (like a thin spread, not a pat) or try a dab of olive oil instead.
Just say no! A slice of pumpkin pie can add as much as 316 calories and 14 grams of fat to your meal.
A good rule of thumb: make choices at Thanksgiving based on what foods are closest to their natural state.
