Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes

 I am not a fan of typical Thanksgiving foods and could actually do without it all except the pumpkin pie. I am always looking for new, healthy dishes that everyone will love on Thanksgiving, who says it needs to be the day filled with unhealthy eating and over indulgence? Check out these recipes for healthier options. Thanks to everyone who shared and Pinterest for a few others.

Potato/Vegetables
Corn Pie from Rebecca @ Ezra Pound Cake: Vegan and gluten free
 

Green Bean Casserole from Susan @ Fat Free Vegan Kitchen: Vegan, fresh and healthy

Stuffing (I will be making a version of one of these)
