      - Use no-fat Greek yogurt instead of sour cream in your mashed potatoes.

      - You can also cut the amount of potatoes you use in half and make up the difference with cauliflower.

      - If you're making stuffing, use egg whites instead of whole eggs.

      - Use whole grain bread in your stuffing.

      - Throw in some dried cranberries and celery in your stuffing for added vitamins and minerals.

      - Remember apple sauce can replace eggs, or even oil when you're baking.

      - Avoid gravy, bread and butter, and don't add whipped cream to your dessert.

      - Try to get as much color on your plate as possible. By doing so, you are almost guaranteed to have lots of vegetables and fruit.
