Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The focus on family, slowing down and taking the time to stop and be thankful, and of course lots of yummy comfort foods! Rather than the typical post-Thanksgiving food coma and bloated belly, creating seasonal dishes that are “traditional with a healthy spin” is a fun and delicious way to enjoy all that Thanksgiving has to offer.
We are a mostly gluten-free family because of my younger son’s allergies and my personal preference to avoid triggering IBS. But everyone in the household can enjoy many of our dishes catered toward the sensitive or intolerant…And I’m not talking about dealing with in-laws or cranky uncles!
This cornbread is a classic example of how to makeover your favorite recipes to be more plant-based or healthier. I found these cuties to still be a little sweet for my taste, so you could cut the sugar even more, but those just starting on the healthy eating path found them just right! Make this cornbread for your Thanksgiving table or with other favorite fall dishes like sweet potato hash, Reboot-friendly chili, creamy soups like pumpkin.
