If you’re like me, then you’re running around trying to get as much done in three days, as you usually would in five. So I’m going to keep it short and sweet today and share 4 easy & healthy Thanksgiving recipes that taste great!
First on the list easy and healthy Thanksgiving recipes that taste great: breakfast!
This Healthy Berry Cacao Oatmeal Bake is rich and chocolatey, without an insane amount of added sugar or dairy. I have a huge sweet tooth, so even when I wake up, I want dessert. This oatmeal bake gives you that, dessert taste, but without any of the bad-for-you ingredients. Plus, you can make it ahead of time, leaving plenty of real estate in the oven for your turkey!
Next on the easy & healthy Thanksgiving recipes that taste great: appetizers!
These Healthy Smashed Sweet Potatoes are most likely coming along with me to my Thanksgiving gathering this year. They take a few extra steps, but the outcome with the soft middle and crunchy outside is so worth it. Plus I just love any excuse to eat goat cheese. AND double bonus, they’re gluten free and vegetarian. I love my Thanksgiving foods, but they tend to have a lot of bread and meat. So these healthy smashed sweet potatoes will help balance out your Thanksgiving spread 🙂
Alright, time for the side dish in this easy & healthy Thanksgiving recipes that taste great round-up.
Honestly, I almost said main course, but I guess I have to leave that for the turkey. But really, stuffing tends to steal the show on my plate. This stuffing can be made gluten free depending on the bread you use, is vegetarian, and dairy-free. So you really can customize this Easy Vegetarian Stuffing with Cashews based on who will be showing up at your table this year.
Last, but certainly not least, a dessert to add to your Thanksgiving spread this year.
Growing up, desserts earned their own separate table at my Thanksgiving gatherings. They also required at least an hour break between the main meal and dessert so that we could fit a little taste of each into our bellies. I don’t usually preach eating more than feels good for your stomach. But we all know how easily this can happen on Thanksgiving. Finishing out the night with this Vegan Apple Crisp with Gingersnaps isn’t a bad way to go out.
