Scrumptious (And Healthy) Sides for Your Thanksgiving Feast

Posted by Living Well Team on Nov 21, 2016 4:19:37 PM

We have a lot to be thankful for here in the Lowcountry. We’re surrounded by natural beauty, the people are friendly and the weather is comfortably mild. And it’s no secret that we know how to cook and entertain!

But while tasty, our favorite comfort foods aren’t always the healthiest of options. This Thanksgiving, try adding a few of these healthy takes on classic dishes to your holiday buffet: 

Rosemary and Garlic Mashed Cauliflower

You won’t miss potatoes a bit once you try this this creamy, delicious side dish from The Cookie Rookie.

Healthy Slow Cooker Sweet Potato Casserole

Sweet potatoes are packed with vitamin A and vitamin B. Plus they’re fat-free. This recipe from Kristine’s Kitchen can be made before the rest of your meal and kept warm until dinnertime.

Lightened-Up Creamy Green Bean Casserole

This casserole from Diethood uses dairy-free butter and dairy-free milk, and it nixes the bacon for a cholesterol-free version of a holiday classic. And the homemade onion ring topping is way tastier than the bagged stuff.

Pumpkin Pie Smoothie

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of healthy smoothies here at Beaufort Memorial. Avoid your usual food coma by trying this sweet after-dinner treat from Shugary Sweets.
