Herbed Turkey Breast
Tackling a full turkey can be intimidating and a bit too much meat if you’re hosting a small Thanksgiving dinner. If that’s the case, try this lean turkey breast instead.
Turkey breast is more readily available year round than whole turkeys, so this recipe can be used throughout the year whenever you want a little taste of Thanksgiving! A typical turkey breast will serve four to six people, is an excellent source of lean protein and can still be carefully packed with your favorite stuffing.
Crunchy Kale Chips
Kale is an excellent source of vitamins A, B6, C, and K, as well a great source of potassium, iron, fibre, omega-3 fatty acids, sulforaphanes (a compound shown to potentially have anticancer and antimicrobial properties), and carotenoids (a type of antioxidant). Try this crunchy kale chip recipe for a healthy snack
Cranberry Almond Salad
This light and bright Cranberry Almond Salad is a great starter for your Thanksgiving dinner.
With cranberries in season for October, we want to feature them in our fall recipes while we can get them fresh. The best thing about this Cranberry Almond Salad recipe is that you can prep it a day in advance and toss it together at the last moment, leaving you time to cook the rest of your turkey day meal.
Baked Cinnamon Oat Pears
With fall in full swing, pears are finally in season! In this recipe, we toss pears with cinnamon and oats to create a warm and delicious treat guaranteed to satisfy your sweet tooth. It’s also a healthy recipe: Pears are high in pectin, a soluble fibre that can help lower blood cholesterol levels, and are a source of vitamin C. Cinnamon is a source of fibre, calcium, and iron. Rolled oats are a good source of fibre, iron, and thiamine. They contain beta-glucans, a soluble fibre that may also help improve your immune system. They also contain avenanthramide, a compound that is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties.
