Delicious Thanksgiving Recipes for Weight Loss

delicious thanksgiving recipes for weight loss

Recipes that allow you to enjoy the flavor without sacrificing weight loss are the way to go.

The holidays don’t have to mean more calories or curbing so many calories you lose the entire flavor and the fun. The Turkey is not the culprit here though—that poor thing is the least of your worries—unless of course it’s a deep fried turkey which is fast becoming more popular each year—except with the fire department! There are Thanksgiving recipes for weight loss that you can apply to those sinful side dishes!

Thanksgiving recipes for weight loss:

Twice Baked Potatoes

This is a great substitute for mashed potatoes and gravy.

  • 4 large baking potatoes
  • 1/4 cup nonfat buttermilk—gently warmed
  • 2 Tbsp. nonfat sour cream. Make sure it is at room temp.
  • 2 scallions—slice them thinly

1 Bake potatoes in a 400°F. Make sure they are soft to touch.
When they cool, slice them in half.

2 Scoop the potatoes out and place into bowl; set the skins aside.
Now, mash the potatoes.

3 Add in the buttermilk, the sour cream, salt and pepper to taste, and add the scallions and mix.
Spoon insides back into potatoes.

4 Rewarm in 400°F oven until heated all the way through, no more than 10 to 15 minutes. Serve immediately.

Cranberry Sauce

This is a nice substitute to an old time favorite and a great addition to your Thanksgiving recipes for weight loss.

  • 12 oz. fresh cranberries
  • 3 Pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. ground cloves

1 Bring 1 cup water and sugar as well as 1/4 teaspoon salt to a boil. Make sure you stir very well.

2 Add the cranberries and pears, the cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Make sure you stir well. Place heat on simmer for 25 to 30 minutes. You’ll know it’s done when the cranberries burst.

3 Serve at room temperature or enjoy them chilled.

These are two brilliant recipes that will cut calories in half. Most of the time it only takes replacing what people eat the most of on these holidays to help to prevent extra weight gain or to help stay on the calorie restricted diet without fail.

Other suggestions:

Another suggestion is to steam the string beans for the bean casserole instead of boiling and then covering them with oil or butter. Make the toppings on the side including the cream and allow each person to make up their own.
