10 Healthy Thanksgiving Dishes

It’s a well-known fact that Thanksgiving is when we indulge in plates full of food. There are healthy alternatives to Thanksgiving staples that will still fill you up without feeling deprived of a delicious Thanksgiving meal.

Let’s start with the sides:

Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole

Paleo Mashed Potatoes

Quinoa Butternut Squash Cranberry Stuffing

Apple Cranberry Walnut Salad

Crispy Roasted Green Beans


Now of course, the centerpiece of Thanksgiving is the turkey. It may sound sacrilege but sometimes it’s unnecessary to cook a full turkey. Maybe you have a smaller dinner crowd or you’re less comfortable cook an entire bird. Here are two different and healthy takes on having a full turkey:

Herb Roasted Turkey Breast

Stuffed Turkey Breasts with Butternut Squash and Figs

And if cooking a full turkey is your preference, here is a tasty and calorie-conscious recipe.

Finally, dessert. One slice of pumpkin pie will pack on over 300 calories. Delicious alternatives include:

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pie

70-calorie Pumpkin Bars
