Happy almost Thanksgiving to all of you in the USA!
We are heading out to spend the holiday with Ben’s family up north tomorrow…and are coming home just in time to pick up our new PUPPY this weekend!! If you want to know more about her and what the deal is, head over to my instagram and see all the deets! We are so excited.
Anyway back to Thanksgiving and FOOD. I know you all probably have all the dishes under control already, but wanted to provide some super easy last minute recipes here that you can make for the big meal day. Of course all of these recipes are healthy yet delicious- guaranteed to satisfy even the pickiest “I don’t like healthy food” eaters. I swear.
They are also all SO easy to make…nothing fancy, just delicious, healthy and EASY. What more could you want??
OK, let’s just get into is shall we?
The Easiest Thanksgiving Recipes: ROUNDUP
SO yummy and so good as an appetizer! Soup fills you up so it may also keep you from eating too much stuffing and pie….maybe. It is creamy, dairy free and YUMMY.
Stuffing is my FAVORITE Thanksgiving dish. I get hungry and lusty just thinking about it. My mom’s stuffing is the absolute best I have ever had- she also uses 2 full sticks of butter in it. YIKES! So here is my healthier spin on Momma Bowden’s 5 star stuffing. It’s not as good as hers, but few things are HAHA! I also usually just bake it in the oven, but you can totally stuff a bird with it too- whatever floats your boat.
This dish is one of my specialties. Every time I make it for people they go crazy for it- it really is THAT good. Plus, it is super healthy and fresh unlike a lot of classic Thanksgiving sweet potato recipes- you know I’m talking about those ones with the marshmallows and butter. Swap it for this and no one will even notice!
This is my FAVORITE brussel sprout salad. Start your meal with this delicious, fresh and lively salad- it will fill you up with lots of good stuff and it tastes absolutely delicious. It’s an oldie on this blog, but still one of my absolute favorites!
UGH WAIT. OK, so while stuffing is my favorite dish at Thanksgiving, I wasn’t thinking about dessert. Pumpkin Pie may be my favorite food of all time- I literally have to fight a deep down urge to eat half a pie every time I come across one…anyone else feel me on this?? Anyway, this “skinny” pumpkin pie is crustless, but you won’t miss the crust, I swear. Besides, the filling is the best part anyway. SOO GOOD.
You know how on Thanksgiving, you spend so much time hanging around waiting to eat? Well, I am not a huge fan of that. I prefer to eat normally through the day. I may eat a little lighter to accommodate the big meal ahead, but I like to make sure I have some type of breakfast and lunch. OR if nothing else, some snacks before the main event. That is why I love this spicy pumpkin dip. It is SO yummy, healthy and a great thing to dip crunchy veggies, gluten free pretzels, or pita chips in.
This is another “for the table” snack that is always such a hit. Not just for Thanksgiving- it really is perfect for the whole winter/holiday season. Every time I put them out at a party, they go FAST. Make these, you won’t regret it!
Eat drink and be VERY Merry!
