The Four Healthiest Thanksgiving Foods

by Bob posted Nov 25 2013 4:04AM
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. (But be careful...thy're high in carbs.)

 

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.
