Tips on serving up a healthier Thanksgiving dinner


Serving up a delicious Thanksgiving dinner that's not packed with calories is easier than you think.

Registered dietician Dr. Jenna Anding with Texas A & M University says it just takes some minor changes to reduce fat and sugar...without messing up the flavor. Dr. Anding says, "Instead of using cream, you could use 2 % or 1% milk."

Dr. Anding recommends cooking the turkey with the skin on. But, Dr. Anding says, "When you serve the turkey, remove the skin and you will still keep all that flavor." She recommends fresh cranberries and steamed or roasted vegetables.
