How well do you know the calories in a traditional Thanksgiving meal?

A Day in The Life . . .Thanksgiving Edition!

So the big day has come and your Aunt Bethany has cooked up a storm. Now it's up to you to try and pick the items with the fewest calories from her traditional Thanksgiving-meal spread. While each item may not have substantial differences in calories, remember you'll be eating a lot on Thanksgiving, so every decision counts.

Good Luck!


A Day in The Life . . .Thanksgiving Edition!

To start, what will you be dipping your veggies in?

I prefer my sweet potatoes on the savory side too. I had sweet potato fried out at dinner tonight, and they were coated in cinnamon and sugar. Olive oil and salt would have been more to my liking.

Forget the calorie counts - its Thanksgiving! It's one day out of the year! Get a good workout in in the AM and then don't give it another thought. That's my plan.

see, but you aren't factoring in that I make my ranch dip with lite sour cream vs. the spinach dip from Trader Joe's that is loaded in fat and calories. PLUS, I do a savory sweet potato which is much better than my fatty mashed russets with sour cream, butter, and heavy cream. I guess I agree with the premise, but I think it's really subjective to how each of us cooks. :)
