I have to go to 2 dinners - my family and my BF's. Mine is at 1, his at 5. Both will be traditional meals with all of the trimmings. I will eat a little at each house - tablespoon of this and a tablespoon of that. Otherwise I will overdo it and make myself sick! I'll also be taking long walks with the dogs as often as possible to work off what I can.

Turkey, mashed pototoes, mashed sweet potatoes, brussel sprouts, stuffing, gravy, bib lettace salad and biscuits. The full on Thanksgiving dinner. Last year we had the same thing and I think my portions came out to be around 1,800 calories not too far from my 1,550 limit. I'll eat light a couple of days before and this will be my only meal on Thanksgiving.

My family eats very unhealthy and to be honest very overweight. Since they have the opinion that it's "ONLY ONE DAY A YEAR" I will bring my pre-measured, sides and just eat the turkey. Unless of course it's deep fried, then I will bring my entire meal !

Just the three of us this year so not a big deal....
stuffing (making it for dad to bring over)
mashed potatoes ( hubby loves to make a 5lb bag regardless if it's just us, he'll reheat till it's all gone)
green beans
gravy (hubby is a fan and son)
All in all very low key, not really in the mood to make the huge dinner, first Thanksgiving with my mother gone... it will effect me more at Christmas as they use to come for that and seeing dad come alone will hit me hard...

I'm making lighter SparkRecipes for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner. No overeating and no guilt here. I'm tracking everything ahead of time to stay in my calorie range!

we already had our Tgiving, as we live in Canada.

However, it was very sparse, in comparison to the decadence I see on TV when showing what the US does for that meal (if it's any indication of normal).

I could never eat any of the following, even if I were NOT trying to be healthy:

Green Bean Casserole
Sweet Potatoes WITH Marshmallows

I like steamed, fresh green beans and baked, plain sweet potatoes - where I can actually taste the potato; not the sweetness that's been added

We have a tradition of eating out. No muss. No fuss. And we don't like leftovers.

Going traditional, turkey, gravey, cranberry sauce, sweet potatoes, stuffed tomatoes, green beans with onions, and asparagus. Skipping the dessert part.

Going non traditional. Having seafood gumbo, baked salmon, fresh sushi, and pumpkin cheesecake made from scratch with all the real stuff in it.

Just wondering what everyone was having for dinner on Thanksgiving. Are you changing anything because of SP and goals for a healthier lifestyle?
