Thanksgiving Sides

November 24, 2009

I’ve never really cared too much about the turkey on Thanksgiving.  It’s the side dishes that I always look forward to.  Favorites: Squash casserole, green bean casserole, sweet potato casserole… I think you get the idea. Unfortunately, all of these classic Thanksgiving sides are full of calories and high in fat.  Luckily you can make healthier versions of each dish that feature the same main ingredients.. it may even save you time when preparing your meal. Check out these different versions of classic side-dish recipes for Thanksgiving dinner:

Florida Honey and Ginger Glazed Carrots
Sunshine Sweet Potatoes
Squash and Tomato Gratin
Snap Beans with Red Bell Pepper
Fresh Creamed Corn
Snap Beans with Mustard and Country Ham
Spruced Up Mashed Potatoes
Celery Stuffing
and for dessert… Mucho Mango Bread Pudding

    Have you all heard about the Paleo/Primal diet? Myself and some friends have been following it as a part of this workout program we do. There are quite a few great posts on our group blog ( about different ways to cook and eat based on how the body processes certain types of food. We are considering doing a “Hunter/Gatherer” segment on our blog where we go around Tallahassee and find local restaurants, cookeries and food suppliers to support the Paleo diet. Interested in a collaboration?
