Just as hearty yet more wholesome than traditional red versions, this white bean chili is loaded with lean turkey, fresh veggies and a heaping helping of cannellinis. A type of white kidney bean, cannellinis have a mild, nutty flavor and cook up tender and creamy—perfect for a warm, stew-like dish that combines the different textures and complementary tastes of vegetables and meat. Spoon in a dollop of Greek yogurt for a touch of cooling contrast to the spicy green chiles.
Piled high, nachos are more of a meal than an appetizer. But if you fill your plate with deep-fried chips, clogging cheese and over-the-top toppings, your tummy may be headed for trouble. Instead, sub in healthy favorites, starting with oven-baked sweet potato chips. Black beans, fresh guac and creamy Greek yogurt are stacked in the center for easy dipping. Keep it light and vegan, or add extra-lean ground turkey seasoned with Mexican spices if you like meat.

A big bowlful is less than 350 calories, with 20 grams of protein to fuel you through the afternoon.

After finishing a fantastic Thanksgiving dinner, do you have the urge to skip the family game of Scrabble and instead, crawl under the table for some post-turkey slumber? You’re not alone.
Some may blame a certain amino acid known as tryptophan - but the truth is, you’d have to eat a massive quantity of turkey to feel the effect of the this substance. Your fatigue is more likely caused by consuming larger-than-usual (to put it lightly) portions of food.
But there’s something you may not know about tryptophan – it offers benefits to your body, year-round!
