What to Eat Before Thanksgiving Dinner

Happy Thanksgiving eve! I have a few ideas that are just so simple that you can contribute regardless who is making your meal. If you’re not hosting and wanting to contribute be sure to check with your host. I like to make something for most meals, but this is my crazy time at work so this holiday will be low-key relaxing and I think I’ll provide the wine. I also might wear yoga pants and play with puppies all day. Forget the football games. I’m in for the parade though.

Maybe you need a bfast to start your day with something good-for-you. I suggest a smoothie!

Maybe you need a bfast for whenever-people-are-ready to eat. I suggest the easiest pumpkin muffins ever.

Maybe you need that snack-before-the-meal. I suggest a light pumpkin dip with graham or apple dippers.

Maybe you need a fresh-snacky-item for everyone to nosh on. I suggest this super easy chopped veggies, feta, and salad dressing over hummus with wheat thins. This is a crowd pleaser for sure.

Maybe you need the cocktail-everyone-will-like. I suggest something chilled. This is easy to serve in a pitcher.

Another favorite cocktail is the creamsicle. I suggest finding some good orange soda and you’re good to go.

I’m excited to have Black Friday off. Work is bananas before the holiday and the long weekend makes me even more thankful than the day alone.

  1. What a great idea! I’m going to a basketball game tonight so will probably eat the wrong things, but perhaps I’ll have a healthy smoothie in the morning! Happy Thanksgiving :)
