When it comes to eating big holiday meals, it’s a smart idea to prioritize protein. Incorporating more of the macronutrient — starting with a well-balanced breakfast — can help support your metabolism and leave you satiated, curbing mindless snacking the rest of the day. These delicious recipes take advantage of Thanksgiving flavors with up to 34 grams of protein per serving — all under 440 calories.
