Thanksgiving is not a day to be healthy and count calories. Like my mom always says, “calories don’t count on holidays”. Which may explain my battle with the scale this time of the year.
But even though we should indulge a little on Thanksgiving, we don’t have to OVER indulge and completely fall off the wagon. There are lots of delicious yet healthier Thanksgiving side dishes that will help balance out all the junk food.
I’ve compiled a few of my favorite healthier options below. I wouldn’t classify all of them a health food, but they are at least a lighter, slightly healthier version that some of the more traditional (read: full of butter) Thanksgiving side dishes. I hope they can inspire some of you to add a healthier option to your Thanksgiving table.
I have compiled these as well as some other options to my Thanksgiving Pinterest board. Follow along to see everything I pin! Plus, I will be pinning some great recipes to make AFTER Thanksgiving soon, too.
