YESSSS!!! Thanksgiving is almost here! I am very excited! Food, family, and food….did I mention food?
This year flew by! Wow! And I can’t even begin to think about Christmas….whew!
But, anyway…..back to Thanksgiving!
This is the time of year everyone may start worrying about what to eat and how to keep off the weight, or at least not gain so much.
Well, I have a few friends that gave me this bright idea of rounding up some healthy twists on the traditional Thanksgiving meals. I was able to find 33 healthier versions so hope you enjoy!
