Create a Healthier Fall

Deviled Egg "Turkeys"

While recipes vary widely, there's no denying that deviled eggs get a party started. We like this Thanksgiving-themed version because it’s whimsical and flavorful. 

Plus, you can be thankful for its wholesome ingredients. Nutrition-packed, high-protein eggs are also a good source of vitamin D to support teeth and bone growth. We swapped out mayonnaise in favor of yogurt, a lower-calorie, lower-fat option that contains probiotics to support digestive health. The recipe also features colorful, crunchy bell peppers, a low-calorie food rich in vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium and folate. Plus, bell peppers contain compounds that can benefit eye health. 

Sweet Potato Brownies

With a power-packed nutritional profile that includes vitamin A, vitamin C and fiber, sweet potatoes are the star of this gluten-free dessert. Though its fudgy, rich and satisfying flavor means some people might not even detect them! Bonus: Nut butter and oats punch up the protein, and oats also provide an extra boost of fiber.

Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

This comforting recipe features a hallmark flavor of fall — pumpkin! — and incorporates cashews, which are a good source of protein. Raw (not roasted) cashews are mild in flavor and become “milky” once soaked, so they can be blended into a creamy and rich sauce. Looking to boost nutrition? Experiment with vegetable add-ins like sautéed kale or spinach, steamed broccoli florets or peas. For a vegan version of this recipe, opt for vegan butter and cheese.
