Maple Glazed Carrots :: Roasted Turkey Breast with Maple Bourbon Glaze :: Apple Cranberry + Walnut Salad :: Celery Root + Cauliflower Puree :: Baked Pears with Walnuts + Honey :: Root Vegetable Medley ::  Sweet Potato Pie :: Creamed Kale

On the day of the year that is all about indulging, it seems sort of contradictory to plan a healthy meal. However, this week’s Thanksgiving menu proves it can be done. There are ways to enjoy all of your classic favorites (plus a couple new dishes) without going over the top and being totally unhealthy.

This week’s menu has savory carrots and a coordinating maple bourbon turkey, and sides ranging from a colorful, yet healthy vegetable medley, and creamed kale – because whats Thanksgiving without a little bit of cheese? To finish off the meal (because everything Thanksgiving needs dessert), there’s a sweet potato pie and baked pears with walnuts and honey. While this meal isn’t exactly healthy on a normal day, it certainly can pass as an attempt to eat healthier this Thanksgiving.
