Thanksgiving is a day to literally stuff yourself like the turkey on your table! It puts people into the infamous turkey coma! Then you unbutton your pants, lay on the couch and question why the heck you ate so much! Seriously you can’t deny that you have totally been there! I have for sure!
The next day you wake up and feel sluggish and vow to never do that again. But holiday amnesia kicks in and there are leftovers- so you just eat some more!! But wait… you do ‘okay’ the next three weeks until the Christmas gatherings start and it happens all over again! It’s the vicious cycle of yo-yo dieting, detoxing and binging! But this year you can have a little self control and also still enjoy the day! For me my balance is finding clean recipes that are full of flavor, satisfy what I enjoy and still leave feeling comfortable in my jeans!!
So this week is our holiday survival guide!!! Today is recipe day. How can you tweak the foods you love to save your waistline???
Corn Soufflé is no doubt one of my fav recipes. But it has a stick of butter and sour cream in there which leaves my entire stomach in knots and the calories are killer! So double whammy! I cleaned it up and it’s pretty darn delicious.
1/4 c egg substitute
1/4 c melted butter
1 8oz no salt added can of corn, drained
