Thanksgiving Veggies

Health Notes from Dr. Liz

February 21, 2011

Turkey, mashed potatoes and gravy, along with pumpkin pie, all get our eating attention at Thanksgiving. But don’t forget the veggies! Grandma makes wonderful vegetable side dishes, such as yams, Brussels sprouts, Swiss chard and green beans, which come packed with powerful nutrition. This holiday, fill your plate with these favorites (and go easy on the added butter).
