Healthy Thanksgiving Makeovers
With its focus on appreciating autumn's bountiful harvest, Thanksgiving is the perfect holiday to rethink unhealthy food traditions. Our founder, Neka Pasquale, share some simple ways that you can give traditional dishes a healthy, delicious makeover.
1. Make a low-glycemic homemade cranberry sauce. Use fresh or frozen cranberries, cook in fresh apple juice, and sweeten with coconut nectar or stevia.
2. Try a gluten-free stuffing. Instead of a heavy bread stuffing, use gluten-free and fiber-rich wild rice. Mix with with plenty of veggies and flavor with poultry seasoning.
3. Sub out the carbs. You can fool the potato lovers by simply swapping the potato with cauliflower for a creamy side dish that won’t raise your blood sugar level the way mashed potatoes do.
