Thanksgiving has come and gone, but it isn’t too late to have a budget friendly, nutritionally conscious holiday meal plan.
For those of us who cooked a delicious turkey, there are creative ways to make sure the giant bird will feed us well after Thanksgiving! Dr. Axe’s 47 Terrific Leftover Turkey Recipes provides ideas for making soups, wraps, and salads (Axe, J., n.d.). Other holiday staples like potatoes, carrots, and cabbage can be combined with turkey too.
How can you eat during the holidays while being healthy and mindful of the environment?
