Holidays are about moderation mixed with a little bit of indulgence. While most culinary staples (i.e. no one is messing with mom’s green bean casserole recipe) are a given, we're willing to give the healthier versions of other dishes a chance. Read on for the Thanksgiving side dishes we'll be making plus, their healthy counterparts, to balance out the decadent meal that is sure to come. Macaroni and cheese
There’s a whole lot of cheese in this classic mac version from Better Homes and Gardens
: Swiss, cheddar, and gouda, to name a few. We guarantee it will be an instant favorite.
Since pretty much everyone loves mac and cheese, there are loads of healthier alternatives including; versions that sub in cauliflower for macaroni, one that gets its creaminess from Greek yogurt
, and a version from Sally’s Baking Addiction
, which adds kale and butternut squash to up the veggie content.
