DIETITIAN-APPROVED RECIPES TO HELP TACKLE TURKEY LEFTOVERS
I love the colours and the flavours of fall. I have already stocked my freezer with delicious pumpkin flavoured waffles and muffins. To me fall is a crisp day wrapped in a warm scarf with the smell of pumpkin and cinnamon in the air. Fall also means that it’s almost turkey time! Thanksgiving is one of my favourite holidays. The gathering of friends and family around a delicious (and nutritious) Thanksgiving meal is something I look forward to every year. The only trouble with preparing a Thanksgiving feast is managing leftovers. I always overestimate the size of a turkey required to serve my family and guests. I think this is because I want to make sure there is enough to go around while also ensuring that I can make a classic hot turkey sandwich the next day. Yum! But enviably, I end up with tonnes of turkey leftovers. So, in the spirit of giving I asked a few of my dietitian friends to share their delicious turkey leftover recipes. Here they are!
