This is one of those fruity and fun saladsthat feels really special and provides that much-needed burst of color (and fiber) on your plate. We're also pretty sure that it'll turn any kale skeptics around. It's SO tasty.

Oooh, cornbread, you saucy minx. Just the right blend of savory and sweet... but adding a big slab of buttery carbs to an already heavy meal is a bad idea. Luckily,we've got a portion-controlled optionthat's low in fat yet packed withbacon.

Of course, people go wild over sweet potato casserole. Top anything withsugar and marshmallows, and it's probably gonna be great. But here's a fun new spin for ya: It involves less of the starchy spuds (but plenty of fiber from the skins) and a presentation that'll make everyone smile... including YOU.

Slow-Cooker Pot Roast

1/12th of recipe (about 2 1/2 oz. cooked meat with 2/3 cup broth and veggies): 206 calories, 7g fat, 447mg sodium, 11g carbs, 2g fiber, 4.5g sugars, 25.5g protein --PointsPlus® value 5*

Turkey is typically the main event, but if you want another option, considerthis easy pot roast. Lean cuts of meat submerged in broth and cooked low and slow = tender, flavorful, unforgettable goodness!

Apple Streusel Slab Pie

Standard-sized pies can disappear quickly, and let's not even mention the fights over who got shortchanged with a dinky half-slice. Keep things civil, and makethis outrageously tasty slab pie. It's large and in charge, and it's convenient to divvy up, so you won't hear any cries of "She got the tip from my slice of pie -- make her give it back!"
