Thanksgiving Recipes – Cassandra Approved!

19 November

Our friend and fellow Fitness Revolution owner Cassandra Forsythe, Phd, RD (yeah – she knows her stuff!) just sent us over a compilation of fantastic Thanksgiving recipes that are healthy and EASY.

Thanks Cassandra, these look incredible!

Here’s what Cass sent over:

“With Thanksgiving coming up, many of us are starting to plan our Thanksgiving fare. 

But, we’d like to make something that won’t increase our waist size so much that we won’t want to move for days. ;( 

So, to help you out, here is a compilation of excellent “Cassandra -approved” recipes you can share with friends and loved ones at your next Holiday Table. 

I’m including mostly seasonal veggie recipes so you don’t have to reach for something out of touch with reality. 

And, including healthy stuffing recipes and delicious desserts.

More importantly: Each of these recipes are EASY to make so you don’t have to spend hours and several dollars to get the job done.
