Just A Thought: Everyone wants to save their appetites for the big feast but it's good to have some quick, light appetizers that you can put out before the feast (if your family is having a Thanksgiving dinner) or after the feast, once people get hungry again (if your family is gathering for a Thanksgiving lunch.)
Some easy appetizers for light munching:
Parmesan Artichoke Dip
4 ounces light cream cheese
Yield: 6 servings

FRIDAY (OFFICIAL LEFTOVER DAY)
Breakfast: The day after Thanksgiving calls for a high fiber breakfast chased down with plenty of no-calorie beverages (like water, tea, coffee) to help keep your intestinal tract moving along. Here are some options:
Apple Oat Muffins
Yield: 12 muffins (6 servings)
Nutritional Information: Per serving: 130 calories, 3 g protein, 25 g carbohydrate, 2.5 g fat (0.5 g saturated fat, 1 g monounsaturated fat, 1 g polyunsaturated fat), 18 mg cholesterol, 1.5 g fiber, 192 mg sodium. Calories from fat: 17%.
LUNCH: Make your own "day after Thanksgiving" designer turkey sandwich. My favorite is turkey topped with light cream cheese, cranberry sauce, and alfalfa sprouts on whole wheat bread.
Dinner: Slow cooker Shepherd's Pie is made with leftover turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes and vegetables. You can assemble this in you slow cooker anytime in the early afternoon and let it get hot and stay hot until you are ready to serve it for dinner.
