The holidays are here and for many that means food temptations that could derail our health and diets. Luckily, there are many healthy alternatives to traditional Thanksgiving meals. You can watch your diet and still partake in the holiday food fun! Below are holiday recipes recommended by The American Diabetes Association through their Recipes for Healthy Living initiative.
