November.TurkeyDid you know the average American consumes 4,500 calories during their Thanksgiving feast? These recipe tips will keep the flavor and nutrition without the extra calories.

1. Try skim milk or 1% milk instead of half n' half - less saturated fat.

2. Try two egg whites instead of 1 whole egg - more protein, less saturated fat.

3. Try lemon or salt-free seasoning blends - less sodium, lots of flavor!

4. Try unsweetened applesauce instead of oil in your cake- more vitamins, more fiber.

Tip of the day from Sodexo Dietitian Kristen Chulada
