Lighten up on Thanksgiving
The Lighter Side of Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving is known for heavy meals that require a good pair of sweatpants and a fantastic nap afterwards. Nutrition and health are all about balance and if you would like to make this holiday “lighter” I have listed some of my personal favorite recipes that will still use the traditional holiday foods so you and your guests will not even know the difference. These recipes are also wonderful to use for Thanksgiving leftovers. I highly recommend getting some of the turkey breasts on sale at your local grocery store since they are super nutrient dense and a wonderful source of protein.
Whether you use the recipes for this week or throughout the rest of the Fall season I know you will love them all and my hope is that they will put a smile on your face and help you feel healthy and happy inside and out!

- Healthy Pumpkin Cookies- Do you have leftover canned pumpkin but no idea what to do with it? These healthy pumpkin cookies are extremely high in fiber and with only 3 ingredients are the easiest thing to whip up and enjoy (or freeze for later). https://thebigmansworld.com/healthy-3-ingredient-pumpkin-cookies/
