I started planning my Thanksgiving Menu two months ago! Decisions, decisions! I wanted to make sure, since it’s just my immediate family, that we continue to reflect the healthier choices we’ve embraced since August!
Here are some things I’ve decided, which might help you too:
- Less is more. The more you elaborate on recipes, the further you will be from having a healthy meal, so why not go back to basics and offer your family and guests a healthy meal everybody will be thankful for?
- Vegetables are great side dishes: Yes, not only vegetables are great side dishes, but they are full of flavor and easier to prepare.
- Plan ahead, so you are not buying things last minute and making choices you will regret!
- Offer healthy desserts, you will be suprised how your guests, who had a full meal, will enjoy that small fruit platter, instead of a large piece of pie with whipped cream!
Here are some of the Healthy Thanksgiving dishes I will be serving:
Turkey Veggie Platter
Homemade Pita Chips with basil pesto or guacamole:
The main dish is the Turkey which is a healthy meat, right? I’ve made it for the past 6 years! Every year it turns out better!
I hope my ideas helped you decide on a healthier menu, after all, it’s never too late to make some changes and share a healthier lifestyle with your friends and family!
I wish you a very Happy Healthy Thanksgiving!
Hope you liked our healthy choices, so many great recipes picked for our table and for yours!
