The average American will spend their Thanksgiving Day eating about 4,500 calories.
How do we not over do it? We shared a post for ways we make wise eating choices for Thanksgiving here. We also like to keep a good balance of this holiday by including healthier dishes! Eating delicious foods that keep us feeling healthy afterwards is perhaps the ultimate celebration! When we have tried to do this, it always allows us to be able to enjoy our family and friends, focus on helping others and gives us so much more to be thankful for! Our hope is that some of these dishes will help inspire healthy eating choices during this wonderful holiday so you can share your blessings and focus on the good.
Hope you enjoy wonderful, healthy food for the happiest Thanksgiving yet!

What foods are you most looking forward to this Thanksgiving?? A few years ago, we went up to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to the Amish country for Thanksgiving, Everything was fresh and the most comforting food you can imagine! Even though we won’t be there this year, we always think back to the incredible potatoes, jams, green beans and rolls that we enjoyed there. After dinner, there is nothing better than finishing it off with some pumpkin pie!
