If you are having a small group for Thanksgiving, try making a Turkey Roulade with Mushroom Stuffing and Blueberry Thyme Gravy. It is a healthy main dish that is oh so satisfying.
Whether you are having a small Thanksgiving gathering or just want a special Sunday dinner, Turkey Roulade with Mushroom Stuffing and Blueberry Thyme Gravy is the perfect healthy dish for you. It has my favorite flavor profile, a ying and yang of savory and sweet. The best part is you can prep the turkey the day before and refrigerate it. That can save you so much time on the big day. Time to watch the Macy’s Day Thanksgiving Parade. Thanksgiving would not be Thanksgiving with out it. I’ve watched it since I was a little girl and still love it. I love watching all the song and dance skits and of course, seeing Santa.
Thanksgiving is all about enjoying some time with family. We do not go out and shop on Thanksgiving, no way, no how. I just don’t understand why stores need to be open. I can spend money the day after Thanksgiving as I could on Thanksgiving itself. Actually, I start Christmas shopping in January. Yes, you read that correctly, January. When I see something that reminds me of someone in my family, I buy it. That way I can spread out the cost of Christmas. I just have to remember to write down what I bought so I don’t forget. I have on occasion found Christmas presents I forget about a year or two later.
This turkey dish is a great way to kick off the holiday season. It is so easy to pack on the pounds this time of year. I just look at a cookie and I can feel my hips gaining fat. I still remember a comment someone once left about a healthy Thanksgiving recipe I posted. It was something like, you shouldn’t worry about calories for one day. I have to say it annoyed me, because they obviously didn’t get Food Done Light. Yes, the food is healthy but it tastes every bit as good as fattening food. The point is to eat it, because it is delicious and oh by the way it is healthy. If it also stops me from gaining another 10lbs over the holidays, I am all for it. I think that is a win-win.
So enjoy a few slices of this healthy, low fat and low calorie Turkey Roulade with Mushroom Stuffing and Blueberry Thyme Gravy and don’t tell your taste buds. They will never know it is healthy. They will just be happy for all the wonderful flavors.
