The best 180 healthy Thanksgiving recipes! From turkey to dessert, this post has everything you need to plan a healthier Thanksgiving. With gluten-free, grain-free, and whole grain recipes.

I feel a little silly posting these Thanksgiving recipes before Halloween, but I know a lot of you are already planning your Thanksgiving menu, so I thought some people may appreciate this collection of healthy Thanksgiving recipes!

The best 180 healthy Thanksgiving recipes! From turkey to dessert, this post has everything you need to plan a healthier Thanksgiving. With gluten-free, grain-free, whole grain, and paleo recipes.

Why not make this Thanksgiving a little healthier? Then you don’t have to feel too guilty about overeating! Since I basically just post desserts and we shouldn’t only eat sweets for Thanksgiving, I’ve scoured the internet for the yummiest sounding healthy Thanksgiving recipes I could find. I’ve listed whole grain, gluten-free and grain-free options when relevant.

If you’re really just here for the desserts, scroll to the bottom where you’ll find loads of Thanksgiving desserts, most of which I’ve tried and loved. 🙂

There are also quite a few paleo options here, but if that’s what you need, be sure to check out my post on 100 paleo Thanksgiving recipes!
