What Nutritionists Eat on Thanksgiving

From mash potatoes to pumpkin pie, we asked nutritionists to share the healthy meals that they bring to the Thanksgiving table.

“My favorite thing to make on Thanksgiving is my swedish nuts. It’s a recipe from my book The Sugar Detox and the nuts are baked with tons of flavorful spices like cinnamon, ginger, and vanilla. I love to make them early as they smell up the whole house with a great scent. It’s a great snacking food for my guests that won’t ruin their appetite for the main meal! We normally use leftovers on top of plain full fat Greek yogurt the next morning! “
-Brooke Alpert, M.S., R.D., C.D.N., and founder of B. Nutritious

(Also, nuts and Greek Yogurt are two of the 9 Foods Everyday Healthy Kitchen Needs.)
