Not every low fat meal has to be bland and tasteless. Healthy low fat recipes are actually beneficial to everyone—including people who do not need to lose weight.
Naturally low fat foods tend to be high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, antioxidants and phytochemicals. The USDA says that fiber can actually lower cholesterol and blood pressure. And antioxidants prevent diseases by destroying harmful chemicals called free radicals.

Low fat pumpkin pie
Whoever said you couldn’t start off with desert hasn’t had our delicious pumpkin pie. This healthy low fat recipe is good all year round, but especially good for Thanksgiving.
This wholesome pie serves 8.
Start off by spraying a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, sprinkle two 1-ounce envelopes of unflavored gelatin in water. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pour 1 cup of fat-free evaporated milk into a small saucepan and heat until almost boiling. Remove from heat and whisk into gelatin. Don't worry if it the gelatin has hardened, the hot milk will liquefy it. Stir in another cup of evaporated milk, ¾ cup of packed brown sugar, one 15-ounce can of pure pumpkin, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, ½ teaspoon of ginger, ¼ teaspoon of nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon of cloves and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract. Stir until well blended. Pour pumpkin mixture into pie plate. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and enjoy!
