How to Keep Calories Low in a Thanksgiving Turkey


I'm Alyssa, a registered dietitian with Nutrition Resolution. Part of the turkey that's higher in calories is going to be the dark meat or the skin. So when you're choosing which part of the turkey to eat, actually, the wing meat is going to have a little bit more calories than the leg meat. And the white meat is going to be the best choice.

Quick Tip

Try to always be a day ahead in your cooking. If you follow this rule, then, when you get home from work, the family dinner will be waiting for you, rather than everyone waiting on supper. While you are heating up the meal you can be preparing for the next, or you can wait until everyone is fed before working on tomorrow. This puts the power back into your own hands by allowing you to cook when it best suits you while eliminating the stress caused by rushing.
