- Swap your holiday morning hot chocolate for a Pumpkin Spiced Hot Chocolate, which is jammed packed with cocoa flavanols, the beneficial plant nutrients that can help improve healthy blood flow and circulation.
- Fill up on plant-based nutrients with fiber, plant proteins and other nutrients by adding pulses (beans, chickpeas, lentils and split peas) to your Thanksgiving meal. Swap white beans for cream/cream cheese in mashed potatoes.
- Swap lentils for all or half the meat in stuffing or whip up simple appetizers, such as Lentil Caprese Brushetta.
- Use pureed chickpeas in place of dairy in green bean casserole or spinach dip.
