Stuff Your Turkey with Flavor and Health!

The holidays are back, but this year is different for you, because you've decided to fill your life with health. A few days before Christmas, are you concerned because you want to enjoy the typical flavors of this season, but you also resolved to stick to your diet? Don’t worry, we understand what you're going through, and that's why we want to share this secret with you. Celebrations and special events need not be an obstacle to stay in shape and have a good health. All you need to do is make small changes to the ingredients in your recipes.

Here are some tips to turn a not-so-healthy stuffed turkey into a healthier one with the same great taste, but fewer calories. By making these substitutions, you'll enjoy a stuffing that’s high in fiber, low in saturated fat,  sodium and cholesterol, and, above all, full of flavor.
