* Turkey – It’s a good choice if cooked without butter, say Good bye to my Butterball…:( 
 Use a little olive oil and spices like thyme and sage for a tasty, but healthier meat.
* Sweet Potatoes – Swap mashed potatoes and sweet ptoato casseroles for a simple baked sweet potato. They are full of flavor, vitamins and fiber, without the fat. * Vegetables – Even veggies can be bad for you if you cook them in butter. Ditch the green bean casserole and corn and serve steamed veggies or a salad with a light vinagrette dressing.
* Jello- Keep it simple and use only fat-free, sugar-free versions to bring color and flavor to your Thanksgiving meal.
* Rolls – If you must have bread with your meal, make sure it is whole wheat so you get the nutrients you need from it. Either skip the butter altogether or add a  small amount of smart balance light or a similar butter-tasting product.
* Dessert – Try fruit, sugar-free pudding, no-sugar-added apple pie or a lowfat pumpkin cheesecake to end on a sweet note without ending your diet. With a little extra effort, you can make a healthy Thanksgiving meal.
Striking a balance is important. And if you aren’t the one cooking, bring a healthy dish or two to share.
