kale and butternut squash stuffing
Swapping traditional Thanksgiving foods with healthier options can be easy, delicious and just as satisfying. Creating a dish that satisfies everyone’s dietary restrictions can be difficult. It can be easy to split a recipe into different parts to make one part the traditional way and the other with a special-diet twist.
The recipe below already satisfies dietary needs for anyone who is lactose-free or diabetic. Anyone who deals with diabetes during the holidays needs to remember that moderation is key to enjoying your favorite foods. If you are looking for a vegetarian dish, remove the Italian turkey sausage and swap out the chicken broth for vegetable broth. For anyone that is gluten-free, simply replace the traditional bread choice for your favorite gluten-free option and make sure the broth you choose is gluten-free. Everyone will be thankful they can add stuffing to their plate on Thanksgiving!
