the same turkey dinner without the same fat: Turkey

Thanksgiving brings us a wonderful time to give thanks, to reconnect with family and friends and to eat more calories than we ever normally would in any given day. Ahhhh...the gluttony.

But it doesn't have to be that way, for tips on how to make your Thanksgiving turkey have less of an impact on your waistline,

  • Roast the turkey on a rack so that fat drips through and the meat doesn't reabsorb the drippings.
  • Rub the bird with olive oil instead of butter.
  • Eat the white meat since it has less fat than the dark meat.
  • Try finding a turkey that has been certified humane.

Here's to a happy and healthy feast!

Good eyes gang! I apologize to those of you who were confused. "Certified HUMANE" is the appropriate term there. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
