Can you believe Thanksgiving is about a week away? We are traveling for Thanksgiving this year, so I’m not scrambling around collecting recipes the way I was last year at this time. But I still love finding creative, healthy holiday recipes and am saving lots of new ideas for the next time we host.
I asked a few friends for healthy Thanksgiving recipes, and wow, did they deliver. I added a few that I’ve been pinning as well, and I’m linking up with Peas and Crayons. Check these out!

Cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Brush with olive oil and roast on 400 until soft. Remove from oven, let cool and then cut into one-inch pieces. While squash is roasting, mix together EVOO, balsamic, cacao nibs and shallot. Toss the squash w/ the dressing and serve!
Is there a dish that shows up every year at your Thanksgiving meal? Are you a host or a guest this year?
