12 Healthy Thanksgiving Fall Appetizer Recipeshealthy appetizers fall thanksgiving recipe

Who in their right mind doesn’t love appetizers? To me, that’s pretty much the best part of the Thanksgiving food 🙂 haha I’d rather skip the turkey and potatoes and just feast on dips and chips and crackers and spreads. Most appetizers can be super bad for you – high calorie, high fat, high sodium – it’s all in there. Of course we all still eat those things; because it’s Thanksgiving and it’s time to celebrate all that God has given us and that means good food! 😉 But if you’re looking for something a little healthier to offer as an appetizer, here’s a collection of 12 Thanksgiving/fall appetizer recipes that you don’t have to feel so guilty about 🙂

And while we are talking about staying healthy during the holidays, sometimes it’s easiest to start off your day with a metabolism boosting smoothie! These ones will keep you satisfied and help to curb the bad-food-appetite. Starting the day with a good breakfast is proven to help you not to pack on the pounds.
