This collection of lower sugar, gluten-free healthy Thanksgiving recipes will please all the healthy eaters!
It's that time of year, folks!
Time for turkey and pie and 'taters and pie and gravy and did I mention pie?!
The hubs will be home this year on Thanksgiving, so we're excited for that! Jade also has her 14th birthday on Saturday, so it will be a chaotic week!
Below, you'll find our healthier turkey day favorites. I hope you can find one or two you'd like to try as well!
A great option for those gluten-free-ers that may be attending your table, and they're delicious!
Biscuits are a must on this fine holiday, and these fluffy whole grain delights are a great way to use up the last of that annoying leftover can of pumpkin.
This scrumptious 'cornbread' is made entirely WITHOUT corn, but you'd never know it! It's also packed full of nutrition from sweet potato and contains NO added sweeteners!
These are an easy way to offer a simple vegetable! Roast them and slice them into thirds or fourths for a more dainty, handheld bite.
This is truly one of my favorite recipes on the blog! A unique onion 'cream' sauce is the base for this soft and luscious potato dish. You'd never know it's cream AND butter-free!
NO milk needed for these creamy mashed potatoes! They're deliciously flavored with garlic and a combination of butter and olive oil.
If you're looking for a lower carb version of mashed potatoes, this is a great one made with cauliflower! We usually make both mashed potatoes and mashed cauliflower, and the kids love both!
This dish also employs a variation of my onion 'cream' sauce (a truly versatile little ditty). The breadcrumb topping makes a delightful textural contrast to the soft and creamy sprouts!
This no-brainer recipe shows you how to make a speedy sweet potato! Give everyone their own individual sweet potato 'casserole' by topping these with a few marshmallows and pecans. YUM!
Roasted vegetables are a great way to please veggie haters, AND they're a good one to prep the night before!
FRESH SALADS AND DRESSINGS
Despite having the colors of Christmas, this salad would make a great addition to Thanksgiving! Fresh, easy, and full of nutrition to offset those pies.
This truly is my FAVORITE salad dressing, and it gets a huge thumbs up from my kids as well!
If vinegar isn't your first choice for salad, give this creamy ranch a try! Make a big batch and bring on the crudite!
LOWER SUGAR DESSERTS
I know my most recent crop of desserts wouldn't exactly please the average sugar lover, BUT!...this pie may just be the exception! Top it with some vanilla ice cream, and no one will ever know.
Another low sugar recipe that you can top with ice cream. This is one of my favorites on the blog! It's easy, delicious, and so healthy!
While this recipe is for a small serving, it can easily be doubled or tripled, as needed. Again with the ice cream, but if you get yourself a good brand of blueberries, you might not need it!
This recipe is just as good as grandma's, but healthier for you!
Thanksgiving wouldn't be complete without a creamy pumpkin pie to round it out! This egg-free version is almost custard-like in texture! The arrowroot really sets it up to be a bit softer than the average pie, and it truly is irresistible!
If you're looking to please lower carb/sugar guests, this pie may be perfect for you. This is the exact one I currently make for our family.
I FINALLY got this up, after years of trying to get the pudding layer just right. The way we make it is with the lower end of sugar added, but you can up it as needed.
A delicious little handheld bite of pumpkin goodness, these would be great served with a big dollop of whipped cream.
These make a delicious topping for all things casserole!
For all your pie crust needs, this gluten-free pie crust is simply pressed into the pan. It's one of my blog's most popular recipes!
I hope you found some good ideas for your (healthy) Thanksgiving table this year. Have a great one! ♥
