3 Holiday Leftover Hacks
#1 Cranberry Turkey Sandwich
If you have tons of leftover turkey, why not make a healthy turkey sandwich with some yummy leftover cranberry sauce? And, instead of using bread, try using lettuce leaves to cut back on carbs. Load your sandwich up with all your favorite toppings like onion and avocado.
#2 Loaded Sweet Potatoes
If you have some leftover sweet potatoes, try making some loaded sweet potatoes with shredded chicken or turkey and top with a slab of coconut oil and a drizzle of pure maple syrup and some sliced almonds or pecans.
#3 Post Christmas Day Salad
For the ultimate post-Christmas meal, try making a mixed salad with whatever leftovers you have! Add the turkey or ham on top of a bed of lettuce and serve with some cubed sweet potatoes, nuts, and whatever other veggies you have. Serve with some raw apple cider of balsamic vinegar for a nourishing meal.
