Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Are you one of those people who plans your Thanksgiving menu two months out? Or are you a procrastinator? You finalize the menu while maneuvering your way through the busy grocery store aisles the Wednesday before the big day.

Well, if you haven’t finalized your menu yet (or if you are open to change), look no further! I put together a Thanksgiving recipe roundup of various courses that I have posted on my blog over the last few years. Most of these recipes are great healthy alternatives to your typical Thanksgiving dishes. Others are, well, just your classic delicious and indulgent holiday fare!


Snacks (or “Nibbles” as we like to call them in my family)

Spiced Roasted Almonds – perfect for your guests to snack on with drinks before the big meal



Side Dishes

Healthy Baked Mac and Cheese with Broccoli


Sweet Potato Latkes – Perfect for those of you celebrating Thanksgivukkah this year!


Carrots with Raisins and Toasted Walnuts



Almond Flour Tea Cookies


Molasses Ginger Cookies



Cherry Pie



Brunch (for the guests who stay over)

Gluten-Free Buckwheat Pancakes



Now if you are the procrastinator type – get to planning! You have no excuse now that I just gave you a great starting point. Besides, the better you plan, the happier your tummies will be on the big day!
