Vegetable and Fruit Stuffing
Very Good 4.2/5
(39 ratings)

Whole wheat bread gives this side staying power. The fruits and vegetables bulk up the dish, so a little goes a long way. A bit of turkey bacon adds another layer of flavor without adding many calories.

This is a great low-cal alternative to mash potatoes. Surprisingly I think it tastes similar to the point you won't miss them even! Cauliflower with cream cheese & cheddar cheese to top. A great side dish!

Green Bean and Mushroom Casserole
Good 3.9/5

A re-working of the traditional Thanksgiving side dish. Extra Mushrooms and garlic hide the fact that you are using low-fat dairy products.

Love pumpkin pie? Hate the guilt? The preservatives of the store made brands? This is an easy to make and bake pumpkin pie, best of all using fat free milk, egg whites, and low fat pie crust cut the calories and fat more than in half! This tastes great and is excellent with fat free cool whip!!! Feel free to make it full fat if you dare, or add a little bit more spices for more of kick. Great for thanksgiving!! Enjoy!
