Health Fact Friday - Feast Mode

Thanksgiving comes around only once a year, so why not loosen up and pig out? Many of us pack on a few pounds during the holiday season, and some keep the weight permanently. However, there are ways we can enjoy a guilt-free Thanksgiving feast and satisfy our taste buds. Make some recipes healthier with less fat, sugar, and calories by substituting some ingredients.
