It’s simple to eat healthy and enjoy every bite. Save over 1,000 calories & 64 grams of fat this holiday season with our holiday recipes!

“Stress Less” Pumpkin Pie Recipe

1 Lowfat Keebler Graham Cracker Pie Crust
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups of fat free milk
1 package sugar free / fat free vanilla pudding
1 tablespoon pumpkin spice
4 ounces Light Cool Whip

Simply mix up all the ingredients and spoon them into the crust. Next, you can add the left over cool whip on top (if you like). Place this in the fridge for a couple of hours and voila the pie is ready with fewer than 5 grams of fat in the entire pie! Compare that to 104 grams of fat in the average 9-inch diameter pumpkin pie.

“Stress Less” Eggnog Recipe

1/2 cup Egg Beaters
4 tablespoons sugar
1 cup of Evaporated Skim Milk
3/4 cup of fat free milk
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
Ground nutmeg to taste

Whip the egg beaters and sugar together. Add all the rest of the ingredients and refrigerate overnight.

This recipe is only 109 calories per cup and 1 gram of fat! Compare that to regular eggnog, which is 460 calories and 20 grams of fat per cup!

“Stress Less” Gravy Recipe

1/4 cup of Cornstarch
1/4 cup of water
4 cups of turkey broth and defatted pan juices
Salt and pepper to taste

Bring the 4 cups of broth and defatted pan juices to a boil over medium heat. While that`s going on, take a bowl and mix the cornstarch and water together. Once the broth and juices are boiling slowly add the cornstarch and water mixture, but keep stirring the whole time. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Downside: You need to get the turkey pan droppings in advance, stick them in a glass container, put it in the refrigerator and wait for the fat to solidify at the top. Scrape off the fat so you only have the juices left.

Upside: This much gravy provides a 2-ounce serving for a total 16 servings for only 12 calories and zero grams of fat! Compare that to 2-ounces regular gravy for a whopping 108 calories and 4 grams of fat, and you can see that this version keeps you from having to spend 10-20 minutes at the that`s cool!
