A slimmer tradition. Given our family heart history, I need to re-design this celebration!
My trad TG dinner clocked in at a shopping 5000 calories. Don't want to be a downer post-holiday, but how are others making this lovely holiday a tad healthier?

And while I agree with lastnightsdinner-- you can cut back the fat and take small portions of the potatoes, stuffing, cornbread and pies, I also agree with Chef Ono. Enjoy. One meal will not kill you. Plan to eat salads and get more exercise the following week and don't stress about it.
If you eat moderately the rest of the time, one meal won't make any difference to your overall health. You're probably doing more harm than good counting -- and stressing out about -- calories on Thanksgiving.
