Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup: Healthy Ideas for Your Holiday Menu

Thanksgiving is only a few days away, have you finalized your menu? If not we're here to help with this Recipe Roundup.

Thanksgiving is a time of gratitude, a time to be thankful for all the blessings that are in our lives, and a time to be with those you love. This Thanksgiving why not put lots of love into your menu by having a healthy meal that will leave everyone feeling happy and full of energy. We have compiled a few recipes from around the web that will do just that. Don't let this holiday season be an excuse to eat unhealthy meals. Good health is something to be grateful for and a cause for celebration.

1. Cranberry-Pear Wild Rice Stuffing

I absolutely love this stuffing! It's a perfect addition to your Thanksgiving (or any holiday) menu. It's packed with flavor and full of healthy ingredients that leave you feeling full and nourished.

2. Tart Cranberry Sauce

This delicious cranberry sauce recipe uses orange juice, which gives it just enough sweetness to leave you wanting more.

3. Grain-Free Dinner Rolls

Who doesn't like dinner rolls added to their meal? These rolls are extra special because they are grain-free. However, just because they are grain-free doesn't mean they lack flavor. These are delicious and taste best when they come straight out of the oven.

4. Crispy Smashed Potatoes With Avocado

Avocados are my favorite because they are jammed full of nutrients. Just 1/5 of a medium avocado has approximately 20 vitamins and minerals. This recipe can be made with either sweet potatoes or regular potatoes.

5. Cauliflower Rice

I love making cauliflower rice. It is very simple and tastes amazing. I personally like to add a bit of cilantro and squeeze on some lime or lemon juice. This will be a hit at any holiday meal.

6. Pumpkin Cheese Cake

This heavenly recipe gives a whole new meaning to cheesecake.

Make sure your pumpkin purée is pure, with no added preservatives or sugar. I used honey instead of stevia in this recipe, but either ingredient will work well.
