As exciting as it may be sometimes there are some health concerns - especially if you're trying to lose weight or keep your diet under control during these festivities.
Luckily, some Thanksgiving snacks ideas can help with this. For example, you can serve roasted veggies or fresh fruits as a healthy appetizer night before thanksgiving day! If you're looking for more things to eat on your low-carb diet until Thanksgiving dinner then check out our list of recipes below.
Warm Spinach Artichoke Dip
This delicious dip is a perfect party snack, especially if you're not the host but just attending someone else's festivities! Warm spinach and artichokes mixed with cheese & spices will be sure to satisfy your taste buds without going overboard on calories or carbs. Make it healthier by using whole wheat crackers instead of regular chips or pita bread. You can also substitute sour cream for plain Greek yogurt - this way it would have fewer calories and fat content in general. It might take longer than usual to bake that way though (about 45 minutes). Sweet Potato Bites with Maple
Cinnamon Yogurt Dip
Sweet potatoes are superfoods packed full of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins A & C, and beta-carotene.

Top them off with chives or scallions before serving & you're good to go.
