Thanksgiving Recipes?

Does anyone have any clean eating recipes for Thanksgiving? In particular I'm looking for a pumpkin pie recipe and a stuffing recipe for the turkey. Recipes for anything else on Thanksgiving are welcome though!

    Hello, I've been thinking about Thanksgiving a lot since we are hosting this year. I'm not sure about pumpkin pie or stuffing because mashed potatoes are my favorite. I found a recipe for mashed turnip which have the same look and density as mashed potatoes and they are super healthy for you vs. all the carbs you eat with potatoes. Good Luck!

    I'm not sure how clean I'll be eating on Thanksgiving :| The turkey is good as is the farm fresh corn. My cousin's wife usually does really good mashed sweet potatoes that are clean because their children have quite a few food allergies. I am making cranberry sauce which will be clean.

    Not sure I can pass up my 93 yr old Grandpa's homemade egg noodles though.

    My stuffing recipe:

    Bake a double batch of sweet cornbread the night before.

    In a large bowl, crumble the cornbread. Add 1 small finely chopped onion, 4 finely chopped celery stalks, 2 finely chopped carrots, 4 cups turkey broth (I boil the turkey neck and gizzards with onions, salt and pepper to make the broth I'm going to use in the stuffing and later in the turkey gravy), 1 tbs poultry seasoning, 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 2 raw eggs, 4 chopped hardboiled eggs, water for consistency. Stir all and taste test. Adjust seasonings to your taste. Stuff away. What you don't stuff, bake at 400 degrees for about 45 minutes.
