Since the holiday season is so busy for us here at Tiny Prints, we definitely understand the urge to sacrifice nutrition for comfort during the busy fall and winter months. But this year, it’s easier than ever to create a healthy Thanksgiving menu that will leave everyone satisfied without skimping on nutrition. Here are some fresh new ideas to get you started:

Turkey Talk

Instead of cooking a whole turkey this year, trim down the fat (and leftovers!) by making this recipe for a Turkey Breast Roulade with Apple Cider Gravy from the Food Network.

  • Combine the taste of candied yams with the texture of mashed potatoes by making Food Network’s Mashed Sweet Potatoes. You’ll cut out unnecessary sugar from your meal without losing any flavor!
