Healthy Thanksgiving Ideas

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

The 2019 Gimme the Good Stuff gift guide is in the works, but first can we 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:

1) Two of the best sides: There are two recipes that we’ve been making since I was born, and each is healthful and super yummy. We shared my dad’s top-secret cranberry sauce recipe and my mom’s favorite simple maple yam recipe on our blog.

2) The healthiest, easiest main: Thrive Market will delivery an organic oven roasted turkey to your door–or a bunch of other organic meat options, like ham, ribeye, or scallops–as part of their Build Your Own Holiday box program. And Butcher Box is giving away free turkeys with your first order.

3) 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 for the holidays I ordered this Thanksgiving Collection from Dry Farm Wines. The collection is specifically selected to pair well with Thanksgiving foods, and, like all of Dry Farm’s curated wines, every bottles 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. You have to order by November 10th (that’s Sunday!) to make sure you have this wine by Thanksgiving.
4) 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.

Stay sane,
