During the holidays, we gather with friends and family to lavish each other with love…often in the form of food. As much as we all enjoy the sweets this time of year, they can be rough on our systems. That’s true of everyone, but especially true of people with conditions like diabetes who need to watch their food carefully to manage their blood sugar safely. This year, why not show your love by adding in one or two options to help your guests manage their health?
If you’re lucky enough to have family hanging around after Thanksgiving, feeding them can either feel like a massive chore if you try to give them fresh options at every meal or a massive bore if every meal is straight-up leftovers.

Thanksgiving recipes are beloved. For good reason—they’re generally packed with salt, sugar, and fat.

Don’t worry about flavor, either. These recipes all use a little something special to take the nutritious makeover of the family favorites into recipes delicious enough to give the old school faves a run for their money.
