Food coma. That’s what most people feel after Thanksgiving, but you don’t need to feel that way. Here are some healthy, guilt-free options to add to your meal.

1. Roasted Root Veggies

Simple, colorful and delicious! Pick your favs and add them to your meal. We recommend carrots, parsnips, Brussels sprouts and squash. Bake them and add a pinch of salt and lemon to flavor.

2. Sweet Potatoes

No need to add all the fluff. Just boil and mash, and add salt and pepper. It’s simple, sweet and a Thanksgiving classic.

3. Green Beans

This dish takes only minutes to prep. Just add a little butter or even some roasted almonds for flavor.

4. Mashed Cauliflower

Skip the potatoes and substitute cauliflower. Add a little garlic and that’s it! This will be less starchy than your go-to potato dish.

5. Asparagus

A powerhouse green! You can literally make these any way you choose – add a little Parmesan and bake, or keep it simple and steam and serve with salt and pepper.

6. Cabbage

A great low-calorie choice. You can bake or fry (using olive oil). It’s a staple that doesn’t get noticed!

7. Turkey

A lean meat with flavor, and let’s be honest – Thanksgiving isn’t the same without one! Just cut out the gravy, skip the skin and don’t go back for seconds!
