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.

After a long, stress-filled day, you may just crave some comfort - and comfort foods like mac 'n' cheese or spaghetti and meatballs.

"Comfort foods are more about the heart than they are hunger," says Marisa Moore, registered dietitian and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition of Dietetics. "They serve to sort of bring up those happy memories from childhood or a time that you've spent with a loved one and they bring you psychological comfort."

Sating these cravings doesn't have to mean you’ve got to eat dishes that are high in fat, sodium or calories. Moore says you can still enjoy your favorite comfort foods while keeping them healthy and delicious.
