Health Highlights:                                                                                                                  
This traditional Thanksgiving favorite is loaded with yummy, aromatic ingredients that will spice up any holiday—and it’s a dessert that’s actually healthy!  
 
Pumpkin: This is a great choice for your waistline since pumpkin is extremely nutrient dense, chock-full of vitamins and minerals, and low in calories. It’s also known to be good for the heart, blood pressure, eye health, and can give your immune system a boost.[1]
 

Egg Whites: 
You’ll love that egg whites contain no cholesterol! They are loaded with protein (which makes you feel full), have zero fat, and they’re low in calories—a winning combination! [2]
 

Coconut Oil: 
This popular oil is becoming more of a staple in cooking.  Its properties have been shown to improve glucose tolerance and lower body fat accumulation. Coconut oil may also improve insulin sensitivity for people with type 2 diabetes. [3]


Nutmeg: 
This baking spice is also a healthy one—it’s been used since ancient times!  If you’re suffering from aching joints or muscles, digestion-related problems, or even bad breath—you’ll love the effects of nutmeg. Plus, it’s known to stimulate your brain and eliminate fatigue and stress. [4]
