Thanksgiving 2013 + Scalloped Potatoes

SONY DSC

People look forward to Thanksgiving dishes all year long. Juicy slices of turkey, tart cranberry sauce, and sweet, spiced pumpkin pie are hard to resist. It can be a challenge to stay healthy during the holidays so I love taking classic dishes and giving them a healthy makeover – reducing the fat and calories but maintaining the familiar flavors. These scalloped potatoes are creamy, cheesy and feel decadent but are much healthier than the traditional recipe. They use skim milk, low fat cheddar and a combination of sweet potatoes and regular potatoes to boost the vitamins C, E, B6 and beta-carotene. Try these and incorporate other spins on classic holiday side dishes like these green beans with caramelized onions and roasted butternut squash with garlic spinach over the holidays. Happy Thanksgiving!
