Thanksgiving Level-Up

Thanksgiving recipes are beloved. For good reason—they’re generally packed with salt, sugar, and fat. We wouldn’t ask anyone to skip a family favorite, but if you’ve got some sides people are more adventuresome with, why not experiment with improving the nutrition profile on one or two? 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.
