You Won't Believe this Mouthwatering Thanksgiving Menu Has No Added Sugar (Even the Dessert)

Thanksgiving favorites, like sweet potato casserole, cranberry sauce and apple pie skip the sugar in this healthy holiday menu. Instead of sugar, maple syrup or honey, these delicious recipes use sweet-tasting spices (like cinnamon and vanilla), inherently-sweet ingredients (like fresh and dried fruits) and techniques like roasting (which caramelizes the natural sugars in food) to achieve the sweet flavor naturally. Just as delicious as the traditional dishes, you won't feel like you're missing out with these healthy Thanksgiving remakes.

The term "picky eater" is a little unfair: it suggests a certain grumpiness associated with food. My kids are certainly not grumpy about food. They love it!

Inevitably, frustration ensues—on both sides of the argument.
