Green Your Thanksgiving: Leave No Trace
Tip #4: Leave No Trace
After tripping on tryptophan and overloading on carbs, the last thing you want to deal with after a hefty Thanksgiving dinner is leftovers. This year, ask guests to bring their own Tupperware containers to reduce the use of tinfoil and save space in your fridge. Or find a local soup kitchen or shelter that will take prepared foods. After making your wish, don't throw that wishbone away. Instead, turn leftover bones, meat, and vegetables into soup. Mashed potatoes can be used for a breakfast hash or made into croquettes. And turkey, stuffing, and cranberry sauce can become delectable sandwiches.
