4 "Healthiest" Food Options for Thanksgiving

by Jesse Rasmussen posted Nov 26 2013 7:14AM

 We think of Thanksgiving as a fattening, once-a-year indulgence.  But actually, there are a bunch of Thanksgiving foods that are GOOD for you. Here are the four best . . .

1.  Turkey -  Turkey is one of the healthiest meats, and it's almost totally fat free.  It's also a great source of protein.  You can prepare it in a low sodium chicken broth if you want to avoid a lot of salt.

2.  Cranberries -  People usually only eat them once a year, but cranberries are one of those healthy super-foods.  They have a bunch of antioxidants and nutrients, so they help prevent ulcers and infections.  They're also loaded with vitamins.

Consider preparing them with applesauce as a sweetener, instead of sugar.

3.  Sweet potatoes -   Sweet potatoes are rich in fiber and minerals, so they're better for you than regular mashed potatoes. 

4.  Apple pie -  Apples are full of vitamins and fiber, so that's a score.  But apple pies usually contain a bunch of spices that are filled with health benefits.  And if you make it with a wheat crust, it's even better for you. Just don't add whipped cream or ice cream.
