Cornish hens are also a good poultry alternative. We do them on the grill--rub coconut oil + whatever spices you like on the skin. For Thanksgiving, I like to use allspice, nutmeg, and teeny bit of cinnamon.
I make cranberry relish instead of cranberry sauce. I put fresh cranberries in the blender and chop them fine, then add a little lemon zest and just enough maple syrup to take away the extreme pucker factor.
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.
