Inspiring healthier eating one dish at a time

Healthier Thanksgiving Appetizers and Drinks

With all of the Thanksgiving focus on the turkey, sides, and pies, it can be easy to overlook what happens before the big meal.  I’m talking about drinks and apps here!  They help to welcome your guests into your home, and get the party going.  If you’re the cook for Thanksgiving, you already have enough on your plate (no pun intended), so I think it’s extra nice to have appetizers that are super easy, and can be made ahead of time. Because I try to keep this entire day of feasting just a tiny bit on the healthier side, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite quick and health{ier} appetizers, and festive cocktails/mocktails from around the web.  Enjoy!
