Guess what? It’s nearly Thanksgiving! If you’re American and anything like me – it’s one of your favorite holidays. I love getting together with family and eating. There’s always new recipes to try and it’s so much fun to taste new creations while catching up with loved ones.

But, as much fun as it is to try new dishes, it’s just as wonderful to have the old classics there every year as well. In fact, I think Thanksgiving is about the only time that I have green bean casserole.

I’m not sure why I don’t make it the rest of the year, it’s so easy, delicious and everyone loves it. With a little less onions sprinkled on top and skim milk, you’ve got a delicious and healthy side dish ready to go within no time.

Green Bean Casserole


Don’t forgo one of the traditions of Thanksgiving just because you’re watching what you eat. It’s creamy and delicious, a snap to throw together and just about everyone’s favorite!
