Nutritionist Approved Healthy Thanksgiving Day Recipes

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays because it forces you to practice and express gratitude. On the flip side, Thanksgiving and the holidays in general can be extremely stressful and triggering. One of the best ways to manage and minimize holiday triggers is by practicing self care. I know that this is easier said than done, but self care comes in many forms! Exercising, meditating, touching base with your support system, stretching, going to bed early, taking a bath, reading, eating regularly, and taking a few deep breaths are just a few of my favorite self care strategies. Eating real, whole, non-processed foods is also a great way to practice self care during holidays like Thanksgiving when eating and drinking are the focus of the celebration. Cooking nourishing and flavorful meals for you and your family is a great way to support your physical and mental health. You can stabilize your mood, energy levels, and appetite by eating foods that have lots of fiber and flavor from whole, non-processed ingredients. Here's a selection of clean, whole food-based Thanksgiving favorites that taste amazing and make you feel amazing too.
