Now of course, the centerpiece of Thanksgiving is the turkey. It may sound sacrilege but sometimes it’s unnecessary to cook a full turkey. Maybe you have a smaller dinner crowd or you’re less comfortable cook an entire bird. Here are two different and healthy takes on having a full turkey:

Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

Stuffed Turkey Breasts with Butternut Squash and Figs

And if cooking a full turkey is your preference, here is a tasty and calorie-conscious recipe.

Finally, dessert. One slice of pumpkin pie will pack on over 300 calories. Delicious alternatives include:

70-calorie Pumpkin Bars
