Healthy Alternatives for Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving usually means indulging in foods that are often times unhealthy. Here are three quick and easy ways to switch out some classics for healthy alternatives for Thanksgiving with all the flavor.
1. Simply substitute the candied yams for sweet potato or butternut squash, and switch the marshmallows for brown, organic sugar and walnuts.
2. Instead of a creamy green bean casserole, opt for green beans sautéed in garlic, tomatoes and basil.
3. For dessert, instead of choosing pecan pie, choose apple pie and avoid most of the sugar, corn syrup and calories.
Thanksgiving can still be delicious and indulging, but a little less caloric. Have a happy AND healthy Thanksgiving.
