Healthy Yummy Thanksgiving Treats

Thanksgiving is one of the easier holidays to keep healthy, so long as you plan ahead. Here are some festive, delicious, healthier menu ideas:

  • Toasted pumpkin seeds, sprinkled on a salad, perhaps with pomegranate seeds or sliced pear and lowfat feta cheese

  • Steamed green beans with garlic, toasted sesame oil, tamari sauce and toasted sesame seeds

  • Baked yams, purple yams, or sweet potatoes with cinnamon (no sugar needed for those with un-blitzed taste buds)

  • Roasted squash with warm curry spices and a splash of coconut milk

  • Mashed faux-tatoes (steamed cauliflower) with herbs, spices, garlic, onion, olive oil or whatever you like

  • Slow-roasted Brussels sprouts with a bit of butter and parmesan or (for vegans) avocado oil and nutritional yeast sprinkled on top

  • Slow-roasted veggies with herbs, like zucchini, yellow squash, onions, mushrooms, fennel, cauliflower, garlic, carrots, tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant

  • Soup, full of autumn veggies and broth, or made from turkey leftovers

  • Toasted spiced pecans, perhaps served over berries

  • Pumpkin cream, made with almond milk, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg (if your tastebuds are sensitive, this will be a very sweet treat, even without added sweetener)

AND we know you have lots of great ideas, too. We’d love to hear ’em!

Have a very happy Thanksgiving and please know how thankful we are to be connected with you.
