Going heavy on full flavors and not on fat is a great way to cut calories but not satisfaction this Thanksgiving. Bold herbs like rosemary, sage and tarragon are great rubbed under turkey skin (or on any meat) along with lots of black pepper, lemon zest, garlic a touch of olive oil and of course, don’t be shy with the salt.
