Many people can relate to the nostalgia of Thanksgiving. There is something so wonderful and comforting about having the same meal, in the same home, at the same table, off of the same plates, year after year. If you are a die-hard sentimentalist, it is really challenging to have even the smallest disruption to the celebration.

If, on the other hand, you are ready to make your Thanksgiving a little more contemporary and a little more modern, I have recommendations to honor your grandmother’s Thanksgiving, but with a healthy twist.

Keep the meal, keep the home, keep the plates, keep the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, football games and family gathering, but make some delicious shifts and you’ll hardly miss a thing.
