Starting Things Right
When it comes to food on Thanksgiving, it’s all about the bird. These tasty Turkey Zucchini Poppers incorporate lean ground turkey and grated zucchini for a delicious appetizer bursting with flavor. If you’re looking for low-fat, low-carb meals that keep the Thanksgiving theme, you can’t go wrong with these bite-sized poppers. Try serving them with a Thousand Island dip for great flavor combination!
Nearly every family gathering and get-together feature some variation on a potato salad. As big a hit as it is, it’s carb-heavy and often features mayo with all the fat left in. While we can always find fat-free mayo, that still leaves the potatoes in there. Our solution? The “No Potato” Salad! It’s got all the flavor you want without heavy potatoes—give it a try this Thanksgiving!
With chilly weather finally settling in for the long run, you’re probably missing those summer feelings by now. With our Red Cabbage Summer Salad, you can give yourself a taste of warmer weather without having to trek down to warmer climates. We’re thankful for the fresh tastes in this recipe, and we have to say, the cranberries in here are going to pair perfectly with any poultry you serve on the big day!
The Main Course
Without fail, year in, year out, dedicated cooks take to their kitchens bright and early the morning of Thanksgiving. Turkeys go in ovens, and cooks spend hours making sure every meal is just right and perfectly cooked. Tired of slaving away in the kitchen? Our Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Soup recipe is the perfect main course! Swap the ground chicken for turkey, and adjust the spices to your preference… oh, and let the slow cooker do all the work! Go out for a walk with family and come home to a warm, hearty soup everyone will love!
Refreshing flavors combine in this low-fat jello recipe, a tasty yet light dessert option to close out your dinner. Perfect for sharing, our Sparkling Lemon Grapefruit Jello recipe is a great dessert recipe that’s sure to satisfy without leaving guests feeling stuffed or bloated. Best of all, it pairs perfectly with the next dessert option too—give your guests both or serve individually!
If any of your guests are gluten-free, this dessert option is sure to be a hit! Lighter and more refreshing than ice cream, our Pineapple Thai Basil & Ginger Sorbet is a delicious cool treat that can be served alone or alongside our Sparkling Jello recipe above. Give your guests options and stretch out from the traditional pumpkin options this Thanksgiving!
Thanksgiving is a holiday full of tradition, but that doesn’t mean you can’t put fun new spins on familiar dishes or try new meals! Try including a few of these recipes as fun alternatives, or go all-in on a new menu and start a new low-fat, low-carb Thanksgiving tradition!
