Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes

Written by:

It seems like the minute Halloween ended, the Christmas season began, with the stores in my neighborhood decked out with trees and stockings, and my inbox full of gift guides!

The 2022 Gimme gift guide is live, but can we also talk about the other holiday? The one in November that we all celebrate?


Here are some of the ways you can make this year’s Thanksgiving healthier and saner:

Use Gimme’s own Thanksgiving recipes.
There are several healthy Thanksgiving recipes that we’ve been making since I was born, and my unbiased opinion is that they are the yummiest ones to exist. We’ve published the super simple recipes for my dad’s top-secret cranberry sauce plus my mom’s favorite maple yams and her famous sprouted stuffing.

Enjoy a hangover-free buzz.
The holidays are a great time to enjoy some healthy, organic wine. I wrote about what to look for in wine in this post, and I now only really drink Dry Farm wines. Every bottle is lab-tested to be sugar-free, carb-free, low-sulfites (and never added sulfites), organic or biodynamically grown, hand-harvested, made in small batches, and free of all additives.

Cook with safer cookware. 
A few of my favorite stainless steel items are listed below, or you could shop Xtrema’s 20% off Thanksgiving sale for my favorite “less-stick” cookware. You can also check out our full guide to the safest types of cookware here.

Stay sane,
