5 Healthy Thanksgiving Recipes From Yummly

With the holiday season upon us, what better time than now to mix in a few healthy dishes with our favorite Thanksgiving traditions. My family’s favorites include sweet potato pie, creamed spinach, southern style cornbread stuffing, potato salad and of course, the legendary deep fried turkey. While these are all delicious and mouth watering options–they aren’t always the most diet-friendly, being particularly high in calories, carbohydrates and grams of sugar.

As an UP3 user, one of the cool features of the UP App is meal tracking. Recently, Jawbone partnered with our friends at Yummly, a personalized food platform that inspires over 15 million users to eat better with recommendations that cater to health-friendly tastes and preferences. Through Yummly, UP users can try new recipes and track their meals with a comprehensive analysis of their daily dieting habits and trends.
