Healthy Thanksgiving Meal

Story at-a-glance

  • For a healthful Thanksgiving dinner, opt for organic pasture-raised turkey, organic vegetables, and organic potatoes. Items best forgone include stuffing and bread, while canned cranberry sauce can be replaced with fresh, raw cranberries, and simmered bone broth is a healthy replacement for gravy
  • While white meat is typically more popular than dark meat, from a nutrition and health standpoint the dark meat is far preferable, as it’s higher in healthful fat and lower in protein
  • My own dessert creation, a chocolate candy recipe is included, which is chockfull of healthy fats and antioxidants, while containing virtually no sugar
