Swap And Drop Recipes For Thanksgiving

Candied Sweet Potatoes

This lighter version of Candied Sweet Potatoes is just around 135 calories. Quite a difference! And sweet potatoes are a great food – rich in beta carotene, which in turn makes them rich in vitamin A.

Stuffing with Sage and Chives
Just 175 calories for the same 1-cup serving. We use whole wheat bread in our version, which is a much healthier choice since it has more fiber in it, which helps to create a feeling of fullness, in turn satisfying you more than regular white bread.

Pumpkin Pie with Graham Cracker Crust
Only 155 calories per slice (1/8 of pie). Another big savings! And pumpkin is so good for you. Just like sweet potatoes, it’s filled with beta carotene and vitamin A. It’s also another great source of fiber, which we all need more of in our diets.
