THANKSGIVING is just a week away, and we're refreshing our menu this time around with some side dishes that are both delicious and healthy. These three recipes will have you and your guests coming back for second helpings--and that's okay, because they're great for you!!

Butternut Squash Salad with Tuscan Kale & Quinoa 

We featured this recipe back when fall just began (where has the time gone?!), and it's been quite a hit among our readers. It's packed with tons traditional Thanksgiving flavors--squash, dark greens, pomegranate seeds & more! Plus, it'll give you a healthy dose of immune-supportive Vitamin A and free radical-fighting Vitamin C, so it'll protect you from those pesky colds that tend to spread around this time of year.

So much Thanksgiving fare is heavy and savory. These sweet carrots tossed with lime juice, cilantro and just a touch of cumin from Sonja and Alex of A Couple Cooks offer a much needed brightness to your meal. They're also great as finger food if you want to serve them as an appetizer!

It's just not Thanksgiving without stuffing, and this recipe from Heather at Sunday Morning Banana Pancakes does not dissappoint. We almost couldn't believe we weren't eating bread because her puree of kale, beans, quinoa and chili pepper resembled it so much in texture and flavor. That combined with the hearty acorn squash--to die for!
