Surprisingly Good-for-You Thanksgiving Day Recipes

November 26, 2014 1:02 pm

Thanksgiving certainly isn’t the healthiest holiday of the year, but did you know that there are a few key dishes that are actually much more nutritious than you would expect? Don’t write off all of the dishes on your Thanksgiving table, because some of them are actually filled with hidden health benefits. Here are just a few healthy holiday recipes that you can be truly thankful for.

Sweet Potato-Pecan Casserole [foodnetwork.com]
It’s no secret that sweet potatoes are filled with beneficial nutrients, and by combining them with crunchy pecans and a few natural sweeteners, you can create an indulgent casserole that won’t wreak havoc on your diet.

Pear, Prosciutto and Hazelnut Stuffing [eatingwell.com]
For most people, the bread is only half of what makes Thanksgiving stuffing so delicious. The rich, flavorful seasonings also make this holiday staple a menu essential, and this unique stuffing recipe cuts back on carbs while incorporating even more flavor than ever before.

Roasted Turkey with Balsamic Sauce [mayoclinic.org]
While deep-fried turkey recipes attempt to sabotage this otherwise lean meat in the name of adding flavor, don’t be tricked into firing up the fryer. Roasting your Thanksgiving bird gives it just as much rich taste, and this recipe even tops it with balsamic sauce for an unexpected punch.
