Healthy & Gluten-Free Thanksgiving Recipes

With less than a week to go before the big feast, I thought I’d share a quick round-up of all of my favorite healthy Thanksgiving recipes, to make them easier to find for your holiday needs.

I like to tackle my holiday grocery shopping as early as possible, so I can avoid the long lines next week, but I’m also hoping to taste-test a couple more recipes before we serve the official meal. The more tasty holiday dishes we can squeeze in, the better. If you haven’t finalized your menu yet, I hope one or more of these dishes will inspire you!

Healthy-Thanksgiving-RecipesRecipes from the top clockwise:

1. Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts

2. Spiced Cranberry Sauce

3. Mashed Cauliflower “Potatoes”

4. Wild Rice & Mushroom Stuffing

5. Grain-free Pumpkin Bars

6. Maple Glazed Sweet Potatoes
