Thanksgiving is full of food, family, and happiness — what’s not to like about this holiday?! Well, if pressed, we might say all the extra fat, sugar, and calories we consume every year. And that’s exactly why we created our Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Challenge!

This year, we’re challenging you to find healthier (but still tasty!) alternatives to your favorite Thanksgiving foods. It CAN be done, and to get you started, we’ve found five amazing options below. Oh, and there’s a PRIZE involved as added incentive for you to make your holiday a little healthier this year: A $200 Spa & Wellness Gift Card by Spa Week!

Here’s what to do:
1. Follow Spa Week on Pinterest (

2. Visit our Spa Week Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Challenge board. We’ve pinned all five of the recipes below there, and we want you to create one of your own!

3. Create a new board called “Spa Week Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Challenge” and pin some of your favorite Thanksgiving foods,  table decorations, outfit ideas, whatever you like to plan out your holiday dinner this year — just be sure to re-pin at least one of the healthy recipes from our board. That’s it!

4. E-mail a link to your board to and have a VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

We’ll announce the winner after the holiday. In the meantime, let’s get cooking
