Thanksgiving Leftovers

For those who celebrate it, I hope your Thanksgiving was filled with family, friends, and good times.

We had a great time, and this year I passed on all of the desserts.  I think that the occasional dessert can be part of your life without destroying your health, so it isn’t like I was trying to be a perfectionist; I just wasn’t really hungry for sweets on Thanksgiving Day.  This year, some red potatoes with garlic and a serving of stuffing seemed like ample indulgence.  The stuffing was gluten-free, egg-free, and dairy-free…and it was quite yummy!  (If anyone wants the recipe, let me know and I’ll post it.)

But now the holiday is over and there is still turkey in our fridge.  Because I have discovered that it can be fun to play with my food, I tried something new today.


Turkey breast
Spaghetti squash
Brussels sprouts
Red pepper strips
Basil and sea salt to taste with a drizzle of oil

It is hard to see the turkey, but it is there under the spaghetti squash.  I steamed all of the veggies and then placed them on the turkey before adding the basil and oil.  Let me know if you try it and like it.

What healthy things do you do with your leftovers?

Until next time, may your choices and actions today create a healthier you tomorrow!

    That is a nice looking salad right there. Back to my exercise regimen after stuffing myself silly with turkey.

  2. Good food and good exercise are a perfect combo. You can’t exercise away an excess or deficiency of nutrients, and you can’t eat away an excess or deficiency of exercise.
