[dropcaps]T[/dropcaps]he holidays can be a difficult time of year for those who are actively pursuing their fitness goals.   The stress of trying to hit a certain calorie goal, or trying to eliminate certain foods can take away from the fun of getting together with family and enjoying Thanksgiving.

This week I sought to eliminate some of that stress while keeping all of the flavor you love in three of your favorite Thanksgiving staples. Take a look at some of my easy tips below, and then check out the recipes! Enjoy!!

 Revamp your recipes by using a few of these tips:

      • Replace whole milk with skim milk.
      • Use soda water versus tonic or diet soda.
      • Substitute whole eggs with egg whites or Egg Beaters.
      • Replace your dips with 1/2 Greek yogurt versus mayonnaise or sour cream.
      • Whole wheat flour versus enriched white flour in baking goods.
      • Limit alcohol consumption.
