Nutritionist Lauren Harris-Pincus doesn’t want to put the kibosh on your Turkey Day feast. She just wants to make sure you don’t keel over after consuming it. “Thanksgiving is a day of indulgence and that’s OK. So you don’t have to forego all of your family favorites,” she tells her Family Food Experts co-host Ellen Briggs. “What I try to do is bring healthier, more nutrient-rich foods into the mix of the traditional starchy, fatty dishes. And it works, because if you eat more of the healthier foods, you’ll decrease the number of not-so-healthy foods you eat. I like to make healthier versions of side dishes and desserts, as those are usually higher in sugars and fats. These include apple stuffing, which has olive oil instead of butter, and adds in veggies and fruits to impove the nutritional profile. Plus, the kids really love it!”
