Savvy Consumer: Give thanks for breakfast on Turkey Day

To thwart overeating on Thanksgiving, start the holiday with a calorie-smart, protein-filled meal.

Sweet Potato Sandwich: Heat two De Wafelbakkers sweet potato pancakes and spread ¼-cup part-skim ricotta divided over both.

Place a pear half, thinly sliced and dusted with cinnamon, on top of one pancake, and cover with the other (309 calories, 11 g protein).

Parfait: Mix 1 cup nonfat Greek yogurt with 1 teaspoon honey and 1/8-teaspoon cinnamon. Layer yogurt mixture, 1 small apple, chopped; and 1/4 cup Fiber One cereal in a cup. Top with 2 teaspoons golden raisins and 1 teaspoon sliced almonds (292 calories, 22 g protein).

Two Ways to Protect Your Skin and Lips

Cold weather brings the common cold – and with it, a runny and raw nose. Constant nose-blowing can make skin super-irritated. Alleviate it first with Kleenex Cool Touch Tissues ($2.19 drugstores), which have a blend of aloe and moisturizers. Afterward, apply ChapStick to the area.

“The multitasking hydrator’s small size makes it easy to use in the folds around your nose,” says Ava Shamban, M.D., a dermatologist in Santa Monica, Calif.

Need help for dry lips? Try The Body Shop 100 percent Natural Lip Roll-ons ($5, The Body Shop). They instantly hydrate and come in five scrumptious flavors - mint, rose, coconut, berry and orange. Wear them alone or swipe over your favorite lipstick for a hint of sheen without the stickiness of gloss.

Some of these vehicles have been equipped with a faulty fuel injector that could develop small cracks and lead to fuel leakage. Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source may lead to a fire.

Volkswagen will install an improved fuel injector and will notify owners to have the vehicles repaired free of charge. Owners may contact Volkswagen at 800-822-8987.
