Thanksgiving Roundup… 40 Healthy Recipes For Your Feast!

I LOVE Thanksgiving.  It is, without a doubt, my favorite day of the entire year.  I love it so much that I usually extend it to be a three-day long extravaganza… a “pre-t’day” feast Wednesday, the “real” feast Thursday, and then a “thanks again” feast Friday.  (And maybe even a Saturday gobble-down too, if I can squeeze it in!)  It’s time completely dedicated to food and family… what’s not to love?  Thanksgiving is literally the epitome of joy to me; good eating and good company, followed by good drinks and laughter.  That’s a lot of good all packed into one day.  HEAVEN.

If you’re like me, figuring out what to make can be a rather daunting task though… there are SO many things I want to cook up, where to begin!?  Maybe it’s that I’m a Libra (ugh, decisions) or maybe it’s that I’m an obsessive food fanatic who wants to cook everything in sight,  but narrowing down my menu is a nearly impossible task.  So I’ve tried to take some of the work out for y’all this year… the following 40 recipes are Thanksgiving faves from some of my favorite food bloggers!  We’ve put them all together to create a hodge-podge of healthy deliciousness perfect for any Thanksgiving feast.  Enjoy!!
