Have a Healthier Thanksgiving Feast

Thanksgiving is all about family and food. You can’t change your family (trust us, we’ve tried). But a few small changes to your recipes can transform this gluttonous meal into a guilt-free feast.

Mashed Potatoes — they don’t need cream, or any dairy. A generous helping of olive oil or vegetable stock, and some high-quality sea salt are all you need to make a creamy, delicious volcano for your gravy. (Save a little of the cooking water and add it by tablespoon-fulls to reach desired consistency.)

Same deal every year. Dressing that everyone loves. They dare me to deviate! It worked for my Grandma and my mom... My girls have this recipe in their hope chests!

Gluten Free Stuffing or Vegan Stuffing — if you or your guests have dietary restrictions, try these alternative versions. Gluten-free stuffing sounds crazy — stuffing is based on bread, right? Well, cornbread (if it’s made without wheat flour) is gluten-free. Trust me, you and your guests won’t miss the wheat.

Better for you Pumkpin Pie — I made this dairy free pie last week using a fresh hokkaido pumpkin from a local farm. My very-picky kids nearly ate it all! If you want it gluten free, simply swap out a gluten free crust.
