Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and chances are you’ve already planned what you’re going to serve to your dinner guests. If you’re looking for a way to make your family dinner both delicious and healthy, these quick fixes to beloved Thanksgiving dishes will get you there.

Cranberry Sauce

Thanksgiving can’t go without cranberry sauce, but when it comes in a can it’s usually packed with sugar and calories. That’s why you should consider making your own or carefully checking the labels before buying it.

Turkey Stuffing

Stuffing can make or break your Thanksgiving turkey. If you’re trying to make it a little bit healthier, cutting down on bacon and sausage and replacing it with vegan add-ins will do the trick.

Mashed Potatoes

Ditching the gravy is the easiest way to make mashed potatoes healthier, but it’s not the only one. You can also replace some of the potatoes with cauliflower and cut down on the butter.

Green Bean Casserole

Thanksgiving wouldn’t be the same without green bean casserole, and you can try to put a healthy twist on it by cutting down on cheese and crunchy onion topping.

Apple Pie

Skipping whipped cream is the first step to making apple pies healthier, but replacing canned apple pie filling with a homemade version is also a great idea.
