Send Us Your Thanksgiving Recipes!


Many Thanksgiving dishes rely heavily on butter and cream. Our resident chef Kathy Gunst says it’s possible to make them just as delicious, and not quite so fattening. (vxla/Flickr)

Are you looking to make Thanksgiving just a little healthier? Here & Now resident chef Kathy Gunst wants help make your family’s recipes — from stuffing to green bean casserole — just as delicious as always, but not quite so fattening.

As she tells host Jeremy Hobson, “we’re not going to be using no-fat sour cream, but we’re going to try to find ways to avoid massive quantities of butter and cream, pay tribute to these family recipes, but give them a little bit of a lighter spin.”

Post your family recipes in the comments below by 5 p.m. Eastern time on Monday, Nov. 17 to get Kathy’s a lighter take. She’ll be back on the show with the healthier versions of the recipes on Tuesday, Nov. 25 — just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday!
