GRAND RAPIDS, Mich.,--Lisa Krozier with Weight Watchers offers some healthy and different ways to prepare your Thanksgiving favorites.
Recipe 1: Mashed Potatoes vs. Celery Root and Yukon Gold Mash:
Did you know that a one-cup serving of a traditional recipe can have over 320 calories and nearly 20 grams of fat? And let’s face it – it can be kind of bland! Here, we have a Celery Root and Yukon Gold Mash. A one-cup serving of our version cuts the fat down by more than half – only 8 grams of fat – and has only 224 calories. The celery root lends a creamy texture and a faint celery taste. This will surely become a new favorite at your holiday table.
Recipe 2: Canned Cranberry Sauce vs. Fresh Cranberry-Apple Relish:
Preparing a cranberry dish can be intimidating; so many people turn to canned, jellied cranberries during the holidays. We have a Fresh Cranberry-Apple Relish recipe that is easy, uses fresh and wholesome ingredients like apples and the best part is that there is no cooking involved and it can be made a week ahead of time.
Recipe 3: Green Bean Casserole vs. Green Beans with Mushrooms & Crisp Onions:
Green bean casserole is one of the most popular holiday side dishes, but it can be very heavy and full of unwanted fat and calories. Our Green Beans with Mushrooms & Crisp Onions is fresh-tasting, flavorful and of course, healthier, too.
