My Favorite Thanksgiving Recipes

food inspiration recipes Nov 22, 2021
 

Thanksgiving It's my absolute favorite holiday. 

I love that there are no gifts to buy and it's all about cultivating gratitude for family, food, and connection. 
 
I love long loungey mornings, eating a light breakfast, and cooking in the kitchen with music and warm fire on. 
 
My husband took overcooking the turkey, which we smoke in the Traeger and it's been one of the best investments we've made! 
 
I also LOVE turkey leftovers and ALWAYS make turkey bone broth (see below for my recipe) with the turkey bones after the meat has been devoured, or we get sick of it and feed it to our pug. 
 
Okay so, today I want to share some of my favorite healthy Thanksgiving recipes that I've loved for years or are just beginning to play with!!!

🌾High in polyphenols (super antioxidants) that make it relatively healthy.
🌾Has many nutrients like manganese, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, copper, vitamins B3 & B6 and potassium.
🌾 While 90% of corn in the US is GMO, popcorn is not (at least for now)!

Now the cons...

There are some downfalls to previously popped packaged popcorn (say that 5 times fast!) which can contain chemicals and toxins that we really don't want in our our our kid's bodies.

Grain Free Granola

Granola has a bad rap. Most store-bought are full of processed oils, tons of sugars, and ingredients that aren't recognizable by mother nature. Many also have GMO's which wreak havoc on our digestive system and make pesticides even harder for the body to break down!

I have yet to find a legit granola I like. So of course, I had to make my own! 

This is a yummy granola recipe I love to serve with sliced apples, bananas, raisins,  cinnamon (even more!), hemp & chia seeds, and cashew milk. It's super quick and simple to throw together, bake, enjoy. It's yummy and filling!

When I was inspired to make this, I was literally in the middle of cleaning and a craving for granola came on strong. I dropped everything preheated the oven and went to work... unsure of what kind of granola I was going to create.

I wanted to make it simple... I've created granola with lots of dried fruits but it just seemed to limit how we could use it. Personally I prefer the oats and seeds more than...
