How To Make Thanksgiving Recipes Healthier + Tastier
Healthy Thanksgiving recipes and cooking tips from Skinny Chef Jennifer Iserloh, showcasing in her six-part video series tricks for dialing down calories without skimping on taste.
Everyone has got plenty of Thanksgiving recipes – but what about chefs’ secret tips to make them easier, simpler and lower in calories without skimping on taste?
Thanksgiving is the biggest cooking holiday of the year, and some of the foods that are served at the Thanksgiving table are actually healthy foods that have gotten a bad rap because of the way they are prepared – or just for the fact that people overdo it on the portion size: the average person eats 3000 calories!
But it is possible to prepare traditional favorites a lot healthier while retaining that delicious taste of the original version.
Jennifer Iserloh – trained chef, certified health coach, and healthy cooking celebrity – believes that life should be celebrated every day through healthy eating that is both delicious and incredibly nutritious.
In the Skinny Chef TASTY + SKINNY THANKSGIVING how-to video series, Jennifer Iserloh takes audiences behind the curtain to help them avoid common cooking mistakes while boosting flavor.
Iserloh touches on important how-to tips to make your holidays stress-free (with do-ahead tips), enjoyable (with great shortcuts) and successful (with key insights how to avoid common mishaps like clumpy mashed potatoes).
For example, butterflying turkey dramatically cuts down on roasting time, resulting in overall moister meat. In addition, by making the stuffing outside the bird ahead of time, food safety is improved while saving time on T-Day that you can spend with your family instead.
As a health coach, Iserloh champions home-made turkey stock as the perfect base for velvety gravy, giving cooks tighter control over the amount of salt in their recipes – ideal for people who want to cut back on sodium.
Harking back to her upbringing in rural Pittsburgh, Iserloh still swears by her granny’s moistest stuffing but created a “skinny” version with all the flavor and less fat.
Smooth, lump-free mashed potatoes are easy to make when you follow a few easy steps that are detailed in the healthy Thanksgiving video series – among them Jennifer’s tips to mash the cooked potatoes when they are still hot and using warm milk.
