 Its Thrifty Thursday and what's more thrifty then making that Thanksgiving meal last and last?

 I'm someone that can't just reheat leftovers in the microwave. I find them boring and tasting very "blah", and so I wanted to help you add a dash of a little "something, something" to those Turkey Day leftovers. 

Below are 2 brand, spanking new recipes perfect for re-creating your Thanksgiving meal. They are not only popping a lot of flavor, but also a little "healthified" too. And speaking of healthified...

I  have also included links to my favorite 5 free YouTube Detoxifying, Yoga Twist videos below. These videos are great for ringing out the body after that heavy holiday meal and I have made sure there is an option for all levels.

I wish you all a wonderful day filled with lots of memory, great food ( Thanksgiving Recipes), love, laughs, and hopefully a little bit of creativity.

Enjoy the day and try not to sweat the small stuff! Instead, leave the sweating for your detox poses later tonight!

*You can leave out the turkey if you’re feeling all “turkeyed” out,
 or sub the turkey for another type of meat such  as chicken.
*Substitute coconut oil for 2 T more olive oil or 2 T. of unsalted butter.
