With Thanksgiving right around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning some healthier choices for your holiday table. There is no need to sacrifice in the flavor department. We have you covered with links to recipes that are healthy and delicious.
Mashed Garlic Sweet Potatoes are a tasty alternative to traditional mashed potatoes, and sweet potatoes are an excellent source of Vitamins A, C and B6, as well as fiber, and potassium.
And how about ditching those sugar-laden, marshmallow-covered sweet potatoes for Roasted Butternut Squash with Apples? Butternut squash is also high in Vitamins A, C, and B6, as well as calcium, iron and magnesium.
For some family members, it just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without Green Bean Casserole, but this lightened up version cuts the fat, cuts the calories, and bumps up the protein. And no condensed soup-in-a-can required!
And finally, Lightened-Up Thanksgiving Stuffing is one more way to reduce the calorie-load at the bountiful Thanksgiving table.
Remember, you can still enjoy all of your Thanksgiving favorites (including dessert), just keep your portion sizes in check and make sure half of your plate is filled with vegetables.
