Healthy Thanksgiving Menu Ideas

Trying to lighten up your Thanksgiving? We’ve got some ideas for you. As much as we could, these ideas are gluten-free, dairy-free, added sugar-free, whole food recipes! But first! Remember:

  1. This time is about family and friends as much or more than it is about food. Keep that mindset.
  2. If you’ve been eating relatively healthy, you need to remember that going in. Your body will not thank you if you completely dive off into the deep end. Instead, try little bites and little tastes of things. Limit yourself so you don’t make yourself sick.
  3. Healthy tastes amazing and these recipe ideas can really liven up the boring ol’ menus!
  4. See the link below-you’re eating for joy Thursday, so go with it. Just keep it classy!
