10 Healthier Thanksgiving Recipes (21 Day Fix approved)
As you get ready to enjoy a festive, joyful Thanksgiving with family and friends this year, here are some of my favorite healthy holiday recipes to test out.
Greek Spinach Pie
Here is a recipe is that it’s a lot less complicated than traditional Greek spinach pie. Some spanakopita recipes require shaping small, individual triangles. This recipe makes one big pie, which you can slice into individual portions right before serving. And when you bring the whole pie to table… it’s a showstopper! Get the recipe.
Maple & Turkey Bacon Wrapped Brussel Sprouts
Brussels sprouts lovers will be gaga for them, and even people who are squeamish about the tiny cabbages will want to devour them when they’re hugged by a slice of turkey bacon that’s been painted with a maple and balsamic glaze. Get the recipe.
Healthier Seven-Layer Dip
A lighter version of the classic seven-layer dip, that is heavy on fresh veggies, and uses nonfat refried beans and low-fat yogurt instead of sour cream. As a lifelong connoisseur of seven-layer dip, I can attest to its tastiness. Get the recipe.
Apple & Butternut Squash Soup
Butternut squash is so good on its own, that barely any seasoning is needed. This recipe is so simple and easy. Butternut squash adds creaminess, richness, and fiber to this easy soup recipe. Get the recipe.
Cauliflower Pumpkin Casserole This combination of cauliflower and pumpkin sauce has all the comfort of a creamy casserole without the fat (or carbs)! Get the recipe.
Three Cheese Macaroni Casserole
This three cheese macaroni casserole recipe takes this dish to the next level. A hearty amount of ricotta cheese provides most of the creaminess in the dish. And, because part-skim ricotta is low in fat and packed with protein, it contributes a lot to the 18 grams of protein per serving, without cranking up the fat and calories. Get the recipe.
This simple stuffing is loaded with sweet apples and cranberries and topped with pine nuts. It tastes great warm or cold. Get the recipe.
No-Bake Cinnamon Sugar Donut Holes
I know what you’re thinking: It’s a trick. Those can’t taste like donut holes. Wrong! These little treats really do taste like donut holes. Get the recipe.
This is the autumn dessert for people who don’t like baking. Get the Apple Crisp recipe.
Rosé wines are made from the same grapes as reds, but rosés can range in color from super-pigmented magenta to golden copper. The color depends on two things: the type of grapes that were used and how long the skins were soaked in the juice. Get the recipe.
