“This soup is a staple at my Thanksgiving usually served during the appetizers! Not only is it a cozy way to start the delicious holiday meal but it is packed with Vitamin A and Vitamin C. You can even top it with some pumpkin seeds for some added nutrients. My tip: to save on time pick up already sliced butternut squash and roast for about 25-35 minutes.” -Abigail

Katie’s pick: Crispy Brussels Sprouts with Creamy Mustard Sauce


10 oz shaved Brussels sprouts

1 tbsp olive oil

4 gloves of garlic

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

½ cup of non-fat plain greek yogurt

1 tbsp. water

Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Spray roasting pan with non-stick cooking spray. Toss brussels sprouts in olive oil and garlic. Season with salt and pepper and roast for 25-30 minutes, stirring halfway through. While the brussels sprouts are cooking, combine Dijon mustard, greek yogurt, and 1 tbsp of water. Once brussels sprouts are fully cooked, drizzle mustard sauce over top and serve immediately.

“This is one of my favorite side dishes because it packs a lot of fiber and contains some heart healthy fats – it will be sure to satisfy your taste buds and your stomach!” -Katie

Mary’s pick: Cornbread Stuffing (gluten-free)

“I love a sweet and savory salad at the holidays, and this one doesn’t disappoint!  I’ll go a little extra with the kale to give it tons of color.  I make extra for leftovers and pair it with either poultry or fish to enjoy it beyond holiday meals!” -Julie
