Thanksgiving Can Be Healthy

Jill Devine

Thanksgiving meals can be filled with lots of fattening items, but there are a bunch of Thanksgiving foods that are good for you.

Check out the four best:

  1. Turkey – Turkey is one of the healthiest meats and it’s totally fat-free.  It’s a great source of protein.  To avoid loads of salt, prepare the turkey in low sodium chicken broth.
  2. Cranberries – Cranberries are considered a healthy super-food.  They are loaded with antioxidants and nutrients, so they help prevent ulcers and infections.  They also have tons of vitamins.
  3. Sweet potatoes – They are rich in fiber and minerals, so they are better for you than regular mashed potatoes.  Avoid the butter and marshmallows to keep them healthy.
  4. Apple pie – Apples are full of vitamins and fiber.  They usually have a bunch of spices that are filled with health benefits.  If you make it with wheat crust, it’s better for you.  Avoid the whipped cream or ice cream.

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving food?
