We’re reaching that time of the year when countless holidays are making it difficult to keep our diet on the healthy side—starting with Thanksgiving. Many popular dishes that we all serve during this holiday aren’t that healthy, but you can make them better with this brief guide.
If you’re buying canned cranberry sauce, always check the labels to find one that’s not packed with artificial flavorings and colors. Making a homemade version is an even better option if you have enough time on your hands.
No Thanksgiving is complete without this delicious dessert, and you can make it healthier by replacing canned apple pie filling with a homemade version. Ditching sugary toppings such as whipped cream is also a good idea.
Stuffed turkey is the first dish that comes to mind when someone mentions Thanksgiving. Most people tend to stuff it with meat, but opting for plant-based ingredients is a better idea because your dish will be 100% meat otherwise.
Green Bean Casserole
Green bean casserole is another Thanksgiving staple that isn’t necessarily healthy. Cheese and fried onions are usually used as a topping and it’s a good idea to cut down on them because they’re two of its unhealthiest ingredients.
