Clean Eating Green Bean Casserole - Keep Thanksgiving healthy with veggie packed side dishes!

With Halloween over it’s time to prep for Thanksgiving! This is seriously a wonderful time of year.

We’ve started prepping a little already with our Winter Basil Squash and now we have another delightfully mouthwatering side dish, Clean Eating Green Bean Casserole.

Dr. Fuhrman says “The more you eat green the sooner you’re lean.” Knowing all the good nutrients in veggies and observing how well they make us feel, we could not agree more! Our goal this month is to share lots of very tasty, easy and healthy dishes to keep Thanksgiving an especially fun occasion. With these gorgeous side dishes you will completely steal the show from the gravy, potatoes and turkey!

Not only do we have a veggie as our star for this dish but there are also other healthy ingredients. One of which happens to be millet. By adding whole grains to a dish like this you add good fiber and nutrients. Whole grains have been said to be one of the most effective fat burners. It also adds a nice texture. If you prefer you could of course substitute rice or quinoa for the millet.

We have lots more in store so don’t forget to Subscribe and have a healthy Thanksgiving!

    Oh, the millet sounds like a nice alternative to the traditional topping. And I am definitely not a fan of canned soup. Thanks for sharing on the Creative K KidsTasty Tuesdays Linky Party
