I love Thanksgiving and all that it entails. The food, the gathering of friends and family, the football games & the weather all embody Thanksgiving and the warmth that it creates. While I have my favorite, once a year Thanksgiving side dishes that I don’t skimp on, I like to bring a few healthy dishes as well to create a good balance. Skinnytaste is my favorite food blog, every recipe that I have made is delicious and always a big hit. These are two of my favorite Skinnytaste Lightened Up Thanksgiving Recipes.
Enjoy & Happy Thanksgiving!!
