Love Your Leftovers

Thanksgiving usually means a fridge packed full of leftovers, but it doesn’t mean you need to eat the same meal for days. In fact, a little creativity will transform your turkey into varied and delicious lunches all week long—or freeze them for super quick dinners during the busy holiday season.

Here are some ideas for leftover turkey:

Bone broth: Save the bones and meat for a nutrient-rich bone broth that can be used for soups or to cook grains—or sip when you feel a cold coming on during the holidays.

Chili: Combine cooked shredded turkey with white beans, kale, carrots and frozen corn.

Stuffed crepes: Add turkey, fresh spinach, smoked Gouda, thinly sliced pears or apples and sprinkle with black pepper.

Taco bowls (for the week ahead): Portion turkey, shredded sharp cheddar cheese, cooked black beans, chopped olives and plain yogurt. Have avocado, fresh cilantro, and shredded lettuce ready to grab along with the portioned taco ingredients for a quick lunch.

Croquettes: Combine leftover turkey and mashed potatoes with sautéed onions, garlic and thyme and make croquettes. Dip in beaten eggs and breadcrumbs or almond flour and bake to perfection.

Turkey salad: Add pecans, dried cranberries or cranberry sauce, chopped celery, Satsuma mandarin sections, and your favorite dressing.

Enchiladas: Sub turkey for chicken in your favorite enchilada verde recipe. Freeze for later in winter when you don’t have time to cook.

Paleo turkey sandwiches: Grate sweet potatoes and make hash browns or latkes as the “bread” and fill the sandwich with turkey, leftover cranberry sauce, and wilted greens or roasted Brussels sprouts.

Individual Shepard’s pie: Sub shredded turkey for ground beef and combine with sautéed ginger, onions, and carrots. Place in ramekins and top with mashed cauliflower or potatoes. Bake until golden brown on top. 


Do your best to digest

We all know Thanksgiving isn’t associated with light eating. The best way to have your pie and eat it too? Follow these simple tips to boost your digestive functioning and you’ll be ready for seconds in no time.  

Prep your palate
Drink 1-2 teaspoons of apple cider vinegar (ACV) before meals – this time honored remedy stimulates gastric juices and increases peristalsis in the gastrointestinal tract. Choose organic, raw and unfiltered ACV for best results. Recipe: mix 1-2 teaspoons of ACV in a small amount of water and consume 15-20 minutes before meals. Optional: add a small amount of raw honey or pure maple syrup. 

Befriend bitter flavors
Bitter flavors send signals to our gallbladder, stomach and pancreas to prepare for digestion. This signaling coordinates the entire digestive process including the action of our intestines. Add bitter greens such as arugula, endive, collard, kale or dandelion greens to your favorite salads. 

Be well-cultured
Cultured foods like live sauerkraut provide beneficial bacteria that support digestive health and make food more digestible.

Remember to Chew
Chewing food well is the first step to effective digestion. Saliva is composed of enzymes, helping to digest food while it’s still in your mouth. Chew approximately 30 times before swallowing.

Limit your liquids
Drinking more than 6oz of a liquid with meals can dilute the stomach acid needed for digesting food.Stomach acid signals gastric emptying and fights foreign bacteria and other microbes that may enter the stomach.

Consider Supplements
Digestive enzymes - Supplementing with digestive enzymes aids the digestive process. Hydrochloric acid assists in protein digestion and boosts vitamin and mineral absorption.

Herbal bitters - Bitters activate sensors in the digestive tract that increase the strength and tone of peristaltic waves, and increase production of bile and hydrochloric acid—fostering a more potent digestive environment.
