Shopping for Thanksgiving MealThanksgiving is almost here and if you’re like many people, you will have lots of grocery shopping to do. Before you head to the store, plan your menu and prepare a list that stretches your food dollar and adds the most nutrition to your holiday meal.
  • How many people will attend? Only buy a turkey that is the right size for your group. Allow about one pound per person.
  • Choose a turkey that is not self-basted. That way, you can baste using fat-free broth and save calories.
  • Buy plenty of vegetables to use instead of chips for dips. Vegetables are also great to use in stuffing or as a stand-alone side dish.
  • Buy whole-grain bread for your stuffing, and add barley or wild rice to increase fiber.
You can serve a meal that not only has your guests raving about your culinary skills, but is also good for their health.
