Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living Thanksgiving Recipes and Holiday Recipes
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. The holidays are always full of warmth and love, family, and food. Food brings family together, and …
I LOVE FOOD.
Besides, it’s the time of year my husband and I started dating, so it always brings back good memories!
When I lived in Ohio, my Grandma Kubilius would cook all morning, using vegetables she had canned or frozen from her summer garden, and we would feast all day long! (She’s 96 this year, and she’s not a huge fan of cooking for lots of people any more!)
Thanksgiving and holiday meals to me mean many different types of foods, including:
- charcuterie boards or veggie trays
- hearty soups
- fresh salads
- turkey & gravy
- butternut squash
- sweet potatoes
- cranberry sauce
If you’ve made the decision (or are thinking about deciding) to do 30 Days to Healthy Living while over Thanksgiving or Christmas, you might be thinking that you’re either going to be miserable, or you’re going to break your program.
You can have all the flavor of an amazing holiday meal PLUS stay faithful to your 30 Day Program!
You can still enjoy the food and drink without the bloat, greasiness, and food-coma, not to mention the extra-poundage that comes with stuffing your face full of foods you know aren’t good for you.
Below you are going to find a huge resource full of recipes of all the types of foods above that are dairy free, wheat free, added sugar free (or very low sugar added, in the case of some recipes), artificial sweetener free, soy free, alcohol free.
Most of them have a lower than typical amount of fats added (when compared to most traditional Thanksgiving recipes which are loaded with butter!). Some of them are even vegan.
Also, keep in mind that a lot of consultants support you being 80%/20% on 30 Days to Healthy Living. This means that you eat 80% with the food recommendations and 20% whatever you want.
You COULD potentially use Thanksgiving as one of your cheat meals… but let’s be honest here… if I chose Thanksgiving as a cheat meal, it would turn into a cheat DAY! There would be a full day of stuffing myself with unhealthy foods and junk.
Part of the allure of doing Arbonne’s 30 Days to Healthy Living over Thanksgiving or Christmas is that you have support and accountability to eat healthier! So I encourage you to choose Thanksgiving or your Christmas Dinner as one of your 30 Days 80% meals and NOT a cheat day.
Tips for Making Your Thanksgiving or Christmas Dinner Arbonne Approved
Any recipes that include any of the following are NO-GOs:
- sour cream
- ranch dressing
- evaporated milk
- cheese of any kind
- whipped cream
- cool whip (wrong on SO many levels!)
- boxed pudding
- soy sauce
- wheat flour
- whole wheat flour
- bread flour
- strong flour
- boxed cookies
- boxed crackers
- sausage or bacon with nitrates, added hormones, or caramel color
- turkey produced with hormones
- simple syrup
- canned fruits (which are often sitting in sugary syrups!)
- canned or frozen vegetables (which have nutrients that have been broken down and are not as nutritious)
- milk chocolate
- white chocolate
- butterscotch chips
This is not an exhaustive list. Do your research and determine if a recipe is clean enough to be considered part of your 80%.
Here are some good substitutes for fats, dairy, meats, and other things:
|Instead of this:||Choose that!|
|soy sauce||coconut aminos|
|processed meats||meats without hormones, |
nitrates, or added color
(organic is best!)
|cool whip or|
|milk based dressing||Whole30-approved|
mayonnaise based sauce or
olive oil dressing
|wheat flour||preferably leave it out, but almond flour|
coconut flour, tapioca flour are better
|white sugar, brown sugar,|
agave, simple syrup,
splenda, other artificial
|stevia, pure cane sugar|
(also okay, but not as great: honey,
coconut sugar, real maple syrup)
some desserts & muffins (etc) can be
sweetened with bananas
|canned or frozen fruits||fresh fruit|
|canned or frozen veggies||fresh veggies|
|peanut butter||almond butter|
|milk chocolate, white chocolate, |
peanut butter chips
A note about butter and other fats
Butter is made from milk and is technically a dairy product. However, it is low in carbs and protein, which means that it is low in lactose (the sugar found in milk which is the cause of lactose-intolerance) as well as milk protein (which causes cow’s milk allergy). So it is often included in dairy-free recipes.
Not all butter is created equal. Organic, free-range, grass-fed butter is always better because of its vitamin content and omega-3 fatty acids.
If you react strongly to butter or you have a severe milk allergy or lactose-intolerance, you may want to substitute olive oil or coconut oil, two vegan options for fats that are also delicious.
For coconut oil, refined does NOT have the coconutty taste, while unrefined retains the coconut flavor and could potentially ruin the flavor of your dish.
A note about Alcohol
If you find a recipe for something cooked or baked that includes alcohol, it may be okay if it doesn’t use a lot! Alcohol evaporates when cooked, so it will leave behind the flavor without the actual alcohol! However, beware: many alcohols have a lot of sugar and empty carbs, which aren’t really great to have while doing 30 Days to Healthy Living. So be very particular if you choose to have something with alcohol.
These alcohols have a lot of sugar, chemicals, wheat, and/or caramel color and should DEFINITELY not be used:
- Bailey’s cream
- most liqueurs
These alcohols are better choices if you really want alcohol in a recipe.
- red wine
Other pure, distilled liquors like scotch, bourbon, vodka, or gin may be okay. If they are pure and distilled, even if they’re from wheat, they will not have gluten in them. You can decide whether to use them (cooked) in a recipe.
Arbonne Thanksgiving Recipes
There are 65 different recipes below. I haven’t tried all of them, but I’ve eaten some of them, and I highly recommend them!
Some of the recipes DO have natural sugars like honey or maple syrup. If you choose those recipes, watch that you don’t choose EVERY recipe that you have to include natural sweeteners.
So dive in to all of these Arbonne 30 Day Thanksgiving and holiday recipes and find the ones that work best for you for your delicious and healthy dinner!
You’re going to LOVE being on 30 Days to Healthy Living over the holidays!

65 RECIPES for ARBONNE 30 DAYS TO HEALTHY LIVING
THANKSGIVING AND HOLIDAY DINNERS
Thanksgiving Trays & Charcuterie Board Recipes
AIP Ultimate Cheese and Charcuterie Platter
This AIP Ultimate Cheese and Charcuterie Platter from Sophie at A Squirrel in the Kitchen is exactly what I would LOVE to see on the table (and enjoy!) before Thanksgiving dinner.
Using fruit, olives, meats, pickles, hummus, and zucchini cheese (recipe linked), this tray looks absolutely delectable!
She makes other suggestions as well. The sky is the limit!
Whole30 Paleo Snack Board
This Whole30 Paleo Snack Board from Kimbrough Daniels is so fresh and yummy! I made a smaller version of it (pictured) for my family this summer and we loved how easy it was and how there were so many different flavors.
There is also a dairy-free ranch recipe! Yum!
Sweet Potato Hummus
Looking for a hummus to serve with your charcuterie board?
This recipe from Nourish Plate super simple, with chickpeas, sweet potato, tahini, and spices. You could even use pumpkin in place of the sweet potato to give it that extra Thanksgiving flavor!
(Obviously, don’t serve with pita chips to keep it Arbonne-friendly!)
Fall Soup Recipes for Thanksgiving or the Holidays
Fennel and Leek Soup with Mushrooms
This soup from Garlic and Zest looks amazing! With fennel, leek, and mushrooms, it’s incredibly healthy and bound to be packed with flavor for the first course of your holiday meal.
Completely vegan, it’s a light starter for what is sure to be a heavy meal! (Save room for that turkey and pie!)
Roasted Butternut Squash and Carrot Soup
This recipe from Eating with Heart has me drooling! I love butternut squash, and carrots are naturally sweet, so this soup is sweet and rich without being too filling.
Or, serve this with salad for a December day after your big Thanksgiving meal!
Broccoli Avocado Soup
This recipe from Refresh My Health is packed with all kinds of veggies like bell pepper, broccoli, avocado, and sweet potato. It’s vegan, Whole30, and it’s packed with all kind of fantastic nutrients for our bodies to feel great!
Whether you use this as a Thanksgiving first course or a meal on its own later during the holiday season, you’ll feel great after eating this! Top with pistachios or other nuts to give it a crunch.
Salad Recipes for Your Arbonne Thanksgiving
Tomato Balsamic Mint Salad with Shallots
This simple salad from What a Girl Eats looks delicious. Even though tomatoes are a summer veggie (fruit, technically) if you can find fresh, ripe tomatoes at a farmer’s market or specialty grocery store, this would be the perfect salad to accompany your 30 Days to Healthy Living holiday meal!
It’s got tomatoes, onion, and some light dressing to make a quick and light pre-meal salad!
This post from Masala Herb is more your guide to greens to use in your salads for Thanksgiving. They list a huge variety of greens and discuss creating a simpler salad or creating a more complex creation.
Plus, there’s a great, lite vinaigrette recipe!
Kale Slaw with Apples, Carrots, and Raisins
This delicious slaw recipe from Making Healthy Choices is a great choice for your Arbonne Thanksgiving (or just for eating any time!). It’s crunchy and nutritious with all kinds of different fruits and veggies.
But it does have vinegar in it, so it’s not strictly Arbonne 30 Days. Use more lemon juice in place of the vinegar and you’re good to go!
Thanksgiving Turkey & Gravy Recipes
Healthy Oven Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey
This Oven Roasted Turkey recipe from the Delicious Spoon is my ultimate pick for your Arbonne Thanksgiving main feature!
Alisa walks you through every step, including thawing, brining, seasoning, and cooking, and she doesn’t leave out a single detail. She even explains how to keep the interior of the turkey moist while allowing the skin to get crispy, (which most recipes do by utilizing fat… not this one!).
It only uses 4 tablespoons of olive oil on the whole thing, and the gravy is dairy-free, gluten-free, and not loaded with extra fat and calories. Plus, with all the herbs, it’s bound to be flavorful!
Paleo, Whole30 Roasted Thanksgiving Turkey
This turkey recipe from Real Food with Jessica is more traditional by using more fat in the turkey recipe. It uses ghee, which packs a lot of flavor, but if you want to make it completely dairy free, make sure you substitute coconut oil or olive oil. It also uses fresh herbs and sounds juicy and delicious!
Jessica also gives excellent tips about using fresh herbs, how to keep things simple, and how to cut the bird.
There’s also a gravy recipe that goes along with it. Yum!
Easy Dry Brine & Roast Turkey (In Parts)
Looking for a recipe that won’t take as long? Savoring Today has a great dry brine recipe for your turkey!
You want to let it dry-brine for between 1.5 to 2 days, but roasting is a breeze! When you roast your turkey in parts, it doesn’t take nearly as long to cook. This is perfect for a Thanksgiving day when your morning is jam packed and you don’t have time to get the turkey in the oven super early.
Vegan Thanksgiving Recipes
Most vegan turkey is typically made from tofu which is made from soybeans, a big no-no on 30 DHL. Another ingredient in a lot of vegan turkey options is wheat gluten, and wheat is another ingredient that we avoid.
I managed to find a couple recipes that use lentils or other legumes.
Best Damn Vegan Lentil Loaf
I’ll be honest, as a meat eater, I’ve never had a vegan loaf before, but Emese and Nandi from My Pure Plants have sure convinced me that this loaf is the way to go!
It’s easy to make and looks juicy and tender. Just make sure your use coconut aminos instead of soy sauce and you’re good to go!
Vegan Thanksgiving Wellington
For those of you not familiar, a Wellington is an English dish that is typically beef wrapped in puff pastry. This is definitely a twist, as it’s a vegan version!
This Wife Cooks uses quinoa and garbanzo beans for this vegan Wellington, but watch out, make sure you use wheat-free breadcrumbs and wheat-free pastry! Worcestershire sauce isn’t technically 30 Days approved either, but at least use Lea & Perrin’s as it’s gluten free.
With a few substitutions, this can be a fantastic Thanksgiving centerpiece for Arbonne’s 30 Days program.
Thanksgiving Stuffing & Dressing Recipes
Sweet Potato Unstuffing
This Sweet Potato Unstuffing from the Real Food Dieticians is the perfect non-stuffing or non-dressing! Bread is not allowed on the 30 Days to Healthy Living because of eliminating wheat, but there are ways to get the flavor of stuffing while eating more whole foods!
With veggies, apples, mushrooms, tons of herbs, dried cherries, and pecans, this is packed with flavor!
Cauliflower Cranberry Sage “Stuffing”-sent
This paleo stuffing from Calm Eats is absolutely delicious! Using cauliflower rice, chopped veggies, and lots of herbs, this “stuffing” is moist and packed with flavor. There are tips about the broth, onion, and substituting dried herbs for fresh ones.
The best thing is that if you use premade cauli-rice, you’re only looking at about a 20-30 minute time commitment for this dish!
Rice Stuffing with Jackfruit
This stuffing recipe is both vegan and gluten-free! For those who don’t know, jackfruit is a large fruit from Asia (if you’re allergic to birch pollen, you’ll want to skip this one).
This recipe from AI Made It For You uses canned jackfruit confit (which has been marinated in savory herbs). With the veggies, cranberries, and rice, it looks like a rich and satisfying “unstuffing”!
Thanksgiving and Holiday Veggie Dishes & Sides
Sauteed Kale and Brussel Sprouts
Brussel sprouts and kale are two veggies that are packed with nutrients! Some people don’t like brussel sprouts, but I LOVE them!
This recipe for Sauteed Kale and Brussel Sprouts from Optimized Life is incredibly simple. Seasoned with salt, pepper, and lemon juice, the key to this recipe is letting the brussel sprouts brown a little to get some caramelization!
Green Beans with Caramelized Onions
Onions and green beans are the perfect match! This recipe for Green Beans with Caramelized Onions from Clean Living with Kids uses olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and nuts: cashews and almonds.
Simple and healthy, this green bean dish should be a staple for any Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living Thanksgiving!
15-minute Garlic Green Beans
When you’re short on time, simple is the name of the game! These green beans from Watch What U Eat are simple and quick to allow you time for all the other things you’re going to cook!
With onion diced small, garlic, and optional red chile flakes, this recipe is vegan and delicious!
Honey Sriracha Roasted Broccoli
With sriracha, a little bit goes a long way! This broccoli recipe from System of a Brown packs a punch and is balanced with a little sweetness from honey.
But you may want to cut back on the amount of honey, because there’s more than enough in this recipe for your Arbonne 30 Days to Healthy Living journey! I recommend 1-1.5 Tbsp instead of 3. (Save the sweetness for your desserts!)
Ginger Cardamom Spiced Carrots
These carrots are really different and pack a punch of flavor! Savory Spin shares this recipe for carrots with cardamom, ginger, and mustard, among other spices.
The best part is that this veggie recipe doesn’t include any sweetener (natural or not!). Carrots are pretty sweet as they are, and it’s all about the spice in this recipe!
10-Minute Garlic Butter Mushrooms
Here’s another recipe that can save you time! Add this garlic butter mushroom recipe from Sweet Tea & Thyme to your Arbonne Thanksgiving!
It’s quick, easy, and delicious, and Eden has a great trick for your oil & butter and how to maximize the fat you’re using. (Seriously, my mind was blown! I had no idea!)
Thanksgiving Rice Recipes
Instant Pot Mushroom Rice Pilaf
For me, rice isn’t a staple for Thanksgiving, but there are so many great rice recipes with fall flavor!
This Rice Pilaf recipe from Belly Rules the Mind is one such recipe! With mushroom or vegetable bouillon base (instead of beef broth) it’s a vegan recipe and they give some suggestions for adding even more flavor and finishing the dish for fancy serving! Ooo!
Gluten-Free Sausage and Apple Rice
Apples and sausage scream fall! This recipe from Food Meanderings uses dried apples and breakfast sausage to get those fall flavors.
Sausage is a more processed meat, so make sure you visit your local butcher shop, farmer’s market, or natural grocers to find sausage made without nitrates, chemicals, hormones, and all that nasty stuff that we want to avoid while we’re on 30 Days to Healthy Living.
Wild Rice Mushroom Pilaf with Cranberries
If you’re looking for a hearty side dish for your healthy Thanksgiving on 30 Days to Healthy Living, this wild rice recipe from It’s a Veg World After All, is packed with flavor and is very filling! It’s vegan (it uses vegetable broth) and has mushrooms and cranberries.
Wild rice is much more fibrous than other rice, so make sure you soak your rice or give yourself plenty of time to cook it!

Thanksgiving Sweet Potato Dishes
Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole
This Paleo Sweet Potato Casserole from Real Food with Jessica is another fantastic recipe from her site!
It uses coconut oil in place of butter and a small amount of coconut sugar in place of brown sugar. If you really wanted to minimize the extra sugar, you could leave it out of the sweet potato layer altogether and just put it in the pecan crumb topping.
Really, sweet potatoes are pretty sweet as it is!
Sweet Potato Bites
Looking for something a little different? These Sweet Potato Bites with Avocado and Bacon from Well-Plated by Erin are a fantastic as a side or as an appetizer!
They’re a simple, bite-sized finger-food, and Erin gives alternatives to make them vegan. There’s even a link to some Creamy Vegan Queso Dip, which sounds absolutely scrumptious!
Browned Butter Sweet Potatoes with Sage
This recipe had me at “browned butter”. Let’s get cooking! This sweet potato recipe from What a Girl Eats is another great alternative to traditional mashed potatoes.
It has sage to give an earthy and autumn flavor to the dish! Save yourself plenty of time… sweet potatoes (yams) can take a long time to cook in the oven!
Vegan Sweet Potato Casserole
Contrary to the name of the blog (A Sweet Alternative), this mashed sweet potato casserole is savory, with garlic, herbs, pepper, and oat flour.
This is great to counter the natural sweetness of sweet potatoes. This recipe is made without any additional natural sugars.
Coconut Stuffed Sweet Potatoes
Looking for a completely different and non-traditional recipe for your Thanksgiving or holiday guests that will still satisfy? This recipe from Amy Casey Cooks is a great variation of a twice baked potato (although these you don’t even have to bake it a second time!)

Cooked all on the same baking tray, this recipe from Desi-licious RD with brussel sprouts, sweet potatoes, and dried cranberries is easy to clean up!
Shahzadi gives recommendations for getting the most out of your brussel sprouts (and how to pick the best ones) and why sweet potatoes are incredibly nutritious!
Healthy Squash Recipes for the Holidays
Whole30 Butternut Squash
An alternative to sweet potatoes (or if you’re like me, in addition to your sweet potatoes!) is butternut squash.
This recipe for Whole30 Butternut Squash from the Travel Bite with Rachelle Lucas is your perfect squash dish! With sage and bacon, it’s savory, salty, and delicious. She gives some tips about how to save time and gives notes on how to cook the bacon.
Butternut Squash Quinoa Salad
Confession, I haven’t made this recipe but I’m SO excited to try it! It’s great if you want to try something different from the traditional Thanksgiving recipes.
This is another wonderful, healthy recipe from Erin Clarke at Well Plated. Quinoa is a grain with a full protein profile, so it’s great for vegans and vegetarians. The recipe does have some sweetener in it, but it’s a natural one, so you can choose to use it (it’s just a small amount) or you can omit it to make it fully 30 Days approved.
Acorn Squash with Maple Almond Butter
Maple Almond Butter sounds a little too decadent for Arbonne’s 30 Days to Healthy Living, but honestly, the maple butter drizzle for these acorn squash is very minimal!
The Cook at Home Mom brings us this recipe for acorn squash, and it looks quite easy! It’s paleo and gluten free, and because the squash is sliced before it’s roasted, it doesn’t take nearly as long in the oven!
Thinking outside the box? Serve this for dessert!
Vegan Stuffed Kabocha Squash
