Enjoy Healthy Leftovers

Leftover TurkeyHot or Cold Turkey Sandwich
Make this delicious leftover sandwich for lunch or dinner. Simply grab a healthy whole wheat bread, slap on some light mayo, stuffing, sliced turkey and cranberry sauce. To serve hot, try open-faced and top with gravy. Then plan time to burn some energy (calories) by taking a  brisk 45 minute walk.

Festive Curried Turkey Salad
Mix up a batch of tasty turkey salad and toss on a salad, a slice of French bread or roll up in a wrap. Simply add together in a bowl, 1/8 cup mayonnaise, 2 tablespoons chutney, 3 to 4 teaspoons curry powder to taste, 1/4 cup chopped celery, 1/3 cup cranberry sauce, 1 tablespoon chopped green onion, 2 tablespoons chopped pecans or cashews, 1 1/2 cups diced turkey. Make extra and you’ll have ready-made meals for days to come.

Hot Turkey Omelet
Whip up a healthy and savory Thanksgiving omelet any time of day. Whisk 3 eggs per omelet (cook each one separately), pour into heated and oiled pan, and  cook until you can lift edges with a spatula. Add pulled apart turkey, leftover stuffing and a drizzle or two or three or more of gravy. Let cook for another minute or two, then flip and let cook for another minute. Slide the omelet onto a plate, fold over and add a dollop of cranberry sauce on top. Eat with a tall glass of cranberry juice.
