Nothing beats the cheerful spirit of the Holiday season.
Nothing like gathering up with friends and family over Roast Turkey! Is there anything more joyous, more homely, or cozier than a Holiday Dinner?! And to me roasts, of any kind, spell “HOME”.
Just because you like to eat healthy, or just because you suffer some intolerances (if you do), perhaps are diabetic, or simply watching your weight… does not mean you have to miss out on the Holidays! Nor do you have to miss out on the delicious holiday foods. In fact, because you are on a diet, make it a point to cook this Holiday Dinner and make this version of Low Fat Roast Turkey. Don’t let the ‘Low Fat’ part put you off, despite being low in added fats this turkey is delicious. Your friends and family are going to love you for it, and they too, will all be happy about the less fat option! Turkey is generally leaner than other meats, and without the added loads of butter, it works very well for those with cholesterol issues, diabetes and weight watchers. It is high in protein, which is preferred by many people. Served alongside healthier, leaner side options it will work like a charm. Try roasted herbed sweet potatoes dressed with a balsamic glaze. Serve it next to a mixed grain salad and my beautiful brussel sprouts with chestnuts (recipe on this link) and you will be serving a gorgeous, flavour packed dinner that everyone will love and enjoy without the after dinner blues!
This Turkey is very easy to make. I have included the stuffing recipe as well as making a low fat and gluten-free gravy below for a full take on this healthy roast turkey. I have also included a very informative video of step-by-step how to carve a Turkey to cover everything for you 🙂
