The Same Turkey Dinner Without the Fat: Mashed Potatoes

Thanksgiving brings us wonderful times and great things to eat. And those things are often loaded with calories and fat.

It doesn't have to be that way. Here are some tips on how to make mashed potatoes have less of an impact on your waist line:

Use a butter substitute like Smart Balance. It contains no hydrogenated oil, no trans fatty acids and a balanced oil blend to help balance fats in your diet. It also provides a favorable ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids they call an Omega Balance.

If you can manage then skip the butter altogether and use skim milk, low-sodium vegetable or chicken broth, or non-fat plain yogurt (this adds a little bit of a zing to the flavor, kind of like sour cream).
