Re-purposing Your Thanksgiving Leftovers- Cranberry Protein Parfait

If you’re like me, you’re opening your refrigerator this morning looking at an excess of leftovers. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce, pies….and I’m sure there is more! It happens every year, yet I continue to make more than I know we will eat because I have a fear of running out! While some people may be excited about the thought of a Thanksgiving meal redo for the next couple of days, I find myself ready to get back on track with eating clean. Re-purposing these traditionally butter laden and high sugar leftovers into healthier options requires a bit of creativity, but its totally worth it! Not to mention, using leftovers= less time in the kitchen cooking, which I’m sure we are looking for a break from that right about now!

Today I wanted to share a recipe that incorporates your leftover cranberry sauce into a protein packed breakfast that will keep you full and energized for all of your Black Friday shopping! The recipe is simple, can be made for multiple people, and comes together in less than 10 minutes! (If you’re looking for a low sugar cranberry sauce- check out our recipe on Houston Moms Blog!)
