      The Thanksgiving table can be a sight for hungry eyes. And while our

      bellies crave this annual feast, it’s important not to gobble up too

      much food.

      • Steam or sauté your veggies in olive oil for a healthier

      alternative to high-calorie casseroles

      • Remove the skin from your turkey and top your meat with cranberry

      sauce or chutney instead of gravy

      • Say no to bread, rolls or biscuits and no thanks to second

      helpings

      • Take a walk with the kids or other family members after you’ve

      eaten

      Whether it’s your first or your twenty-first turkey to carve, these

      steps will ensure a Thanksgiving masterpiece.

      • Start with the proper tools: sturdy carving board, a sharpened

      knife, serving fork and a warm platter

      • Let the bird rest for 15-20 minutes, then remove the stuffing and

      set it aside in a warming drawer

      • Remove the legs and thighs by pulling the legs gently outward and

      inserting the knife into the joints; repeat this same step to remove

      the wings

      • Slice the meat in a downward slant and place the slices on top of

      one another to keep them warm on the platter
