As I've been talking about in my series of Thanksgiving side dish posts, my strategy to not over-indulging or feeling like I'm missing out during the feast is to load my plate up with as many healthy, lightened-up side dishes as I can!
All of the colors together will look so pretty, too!!
In case you missed them, check out my Sugar-Free Cranberry Sauce, Balsamic Roasted Carrots, and Oil-Free Stuffing for a few more healthy sides.
