Which Thanksgiving Food Is Worth the Calories?

Thanksgiving is almost here and I'm so excited to get together with my family and enjoy all the scrumptious foods. I definitely have some favorites I'll be saving room for. Even though they're high in calories, they're totally worth it. So tell me . . .

Stuffing, but it's not really bad. I have to make my own since my Mom puts hers in the dead bird.

sweet potatoes are the best!! Unfortunately, the more sugar it has, the better it tastes, but at least, I'm light on the butter!

Er, none of it? I don't like stodgy Thanksgiving food and I'm vegetarian. Living overseas the past few years, Thanksgiving is less and less important the food is less appealing. My dad is campaigning for salmon at their Thanksgiving, but I think he's being shot down by the traditionalists. My mom never made green bean casserole (or any casserole for that matter) but she used to cook green beans with walnuts and shallots, which was delicious.

I love green bean casserole, but warm buttery mashed potatoes take me back to my southern roots (dad's side is North Carolinian). I may have grown up as a yank, but gorram, do I love me some mashed potatoes.

all of the above...and then some?! lol. but hey, i'm "prepping" big time for thanksgiving--harder workouts(sometimes two-a-day), eating VERY well, etc--so i don't have to count calories that day. i'm going to eat a little of everything and NOT feel at all guilty about it.

Love sweet potatoes, but I eat them all the time, plain, so I can really taste them! I used to be such a cookie monster but avoid sugar now. If someone asked me on Thanksgiving to try one of their homemade oatmeal cookies, I wouldn't decline!

Pumpkin pie. I just don't really care for most traditional thanksgiving foods. I actually like white meat better but I agree with Spectra that there's nothing wrong with dark meat either. So I'll enjoy my healthy thanksgiving with a slice of homemade pumpkin pie and whipped cream and will feel neither guilty nor deprived :)
