Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

November 21 is National Stuffing Day

Thanksgiving is coming up soon, and this Cornbread Dressing Recipe is a great lightened dish to add to the meal! 

This is our Mom's recipe that I have lightened which is a healthy diet habit that I usually follow. Healthy recipes are a good choice for the caloric Thanksgiving meal. She cooks her onions and celery in butter and adds extra butter to the stuffing mix at the end, if it is too dry. I have deleted butter from the mix and cook the vegetables in broth, and I added an extra egg for moisture.

Cornbread Dressing Recipe from Kerry at Healthy Diet Habits

My Mom, also uses the turkey inwards and boils them with water and makes her own broth. You can do that too, but I am lazy and cheat with low sodium chicken broth. Your choice!

Check out the Cornbread Dressing Recipe on Kerry's Healthy Diet Habits website if you are looking for something different, and healthier for your Thanksgiving dinner.
