Gorilla Dieting: 4 Turkey Leftover Recipes and 1 Kick-Tush Diet Tip

Obesity Soap might not do the trick, but Our Lady of Weight Loss shares some kick-tush tips!

Both Our Lady of Weight Loss and I are heading to the Bronx Zoo this morning, with my husband and the ‘kids.’   (The kids are adults now and as it turns out, we’re all pretty much the same age.   But that’s another blog post, I suspect – on how I got to be only 7 years older than my children.  If you want to know the secret to how I managed this feat and how to find the fountain that I’m drinking from, just let me know!)

Anyway, back to the point – we’re heading to the Bronx Zoo and – because there are so many leftovers (geeze Louise, and I was worried that there wouldn’t be enough food), my brilliant and beautiful and loving daughter-in-law (true, I am blessed to have the best DIL ever) said, “Let’s pack lunch!”  And so we are making sandwiches.  (Well, they are busy making the sandwiches, as I am busy writing you!  I can hear the clink and clank of kitchen utensils from my desk!)

We have rolls that are 90 calories per roll – a great deal – for us calorie counters, by the way.  And with 3 ounces of turkey (150 calories) and with a bit of lettuce, tomato and mustard, I am approximating that each sandwich is 275 calories.

KICK-TUSH DIET TIP:  When I’m not exactly sure what something is, I rounded it up.  I call it “DIET INSURANCE.”  You don’t even have to be good at math to round the number up.  True? and Brilliant, Yes? (I’d like to take full credit for this, but it’s really Our Lady of Weight Loss who taps me on the shoulder and whispers in my ear!)

The kids have finished making sandwiches now and they’re asking me what else do we want to pack?  And I’m yelling back, bottles of water and sliced up apples!  So there you have it.  Sandwiches, apples, water and we’re ready to layer up (a tad chilly this morning) and head out to hang tight with the Gorillas!

One more thing, before I share the recipes, remember this.  If you did fall off the wagon yesterday and are having trouble getting back on, remember Our Lady’s mantra:  ALL IS FORGIVEN, MOVE ON!

FOUR TURKEY LEFTOVER RECIPES!
TURKEY BACON CLUB. NO joke! Use fat-free mayo and turkey bacon with your leftover turkey and serve up a Turkey Bacon Club sandwich.
OPEN HAM SANDWICH. Thinly sliced ham followed by a nice dollop of Dijon mustard, topped with a thin slice of reduced-fat cheese on a fat slice of whole-wheat toast. Pop it in the toaster-oven. Watch cheese melt. Eat. Enjoy!
WHITE EGGS AND HAM (or TURKEY) OMELETTE. Use egg whites as your base for a ham or turkey omelet. Be sure to toss in a bunch of crunchy, colorful veggies! Want to add some of that low-fat cheese? Go for it! And now place it on a thin slice of your favorite bread.
TURKEY (or HAM) PIZZA. Get yourself a thin-crust pizza (Boboli makes a good one), sprinkle on bits of turkey and/or ham, a little of that cheese. Some of those crunchy veggies. Wowzer!
What are your favorite day-after Thanksgiving sandwiches?

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
