Here are five healthy Thanksgiving foods you can enjoy guilt-free this year:

Turkey. If you are looking for a lean cut of meat, turkey is hard to beat. A 3-ounce serving of skinless white meat contains 25 grams of protein, barely 3 grams of fat, and less than 1 gram of saturated fat. Dark meat has more saturated fat than white meat, and eating the skin adds a hefty wallop of these bad fats.

Cranberries. Make your own cranberry sauce this year from whole berries, you’ll get a tastier and less sugary sauce than you can get out of a can. The fruit that provides the base of this traditional side dish deserves to move from holidays to everyday. Cranberries are packed with dozens of different antioxidants.


Sweet potatoes. These un-potatoes — they’re related to the morning glory, not the white potato — are an excellent source of vitamin A, beta carotene, vitamin C, potassium, and fiber. This can be a sweet Thanksgiving treat you can serve year-round.

Pumpkin. We know that everyone loves pumpkin pie, but instead of all that sugar  try a recipe Zesty Pumpkin Custard this year.  Before this orange squash is made into pie, it’s just plain good for you. Pumpkin is low in fat, low in calories, and loaded with potassium, vitamin A, beta carotene, and vitamin C.  Check out the recipes and be creative.

Pecans. Most nuts are great sources of heart-healthy fats. Pecans are no exception. Twenty pecan halves contain about 20 grams of unsaturated fat. Studies from around the globe show that people who routinely eat nuts are less likely to die of heart disease than those who don’t.
