View Full Version : Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes, if anyone interested

I know it's getting late, but I just pulled out my 1995 Fitness magazine that has healthy versions of all the Thanksgiving favorites. Over the years, I have tried most of them, and they're good. I'm going to make the low-fat pumpkin pie this year to bring to my friend's house (with regular whipped cream, of course!)

If anyone is interested, let me know and I'll post some of the recipes.

1 can (15 ounces) solid-pack pumpkin
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated skimmed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg (I've always used dried)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 unbaked pie shell - deep dish if available**

Position rack in lower third of the oven. Heat oven to 425. Whisk together pumpkin, eggs, milk and vanilla. In a small bowl, combine sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and salt until well-blended, then add to pumpkin until mixed.

Pour filling into pie shell to just below rim. Bake 15 minutes, then lower heat to 350 and continue to bake for 35 to 40 minutes more or until filling is set and a knife inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool on rack before cutting.

**If you are really committed, Nutrition Action Newsletter recently rated frozen pie shells using whole grains and with no trans fat. You can probably get that info on their website. (I am not that committed though...)
