Tia Mowry is counting down to Thanksgiving, and she already knows exactly who she’s thankful for. While chatting exclusively with, the mother-of-two revealed to us some of the yummy dishes she plans to whip up in the kitchen this year.

“Every year, no matter what ends up on my Thanksgiving table, there's always collard greens and cornbread – it’s the perfect combination,” Mowry tells BET Lifestyle. “Greens are a traditional family dish that’s been around for generations. Whenever I cook collards, I think of my mom. I can never have greens without cornbread.”

The 43-year-old actress and Aleevo skincare ambassador went on to reveal that her eczema diagnosis resulted in her overall choice to change her diet.

“After being diagnosed with eczema, I saw an immunologist and allergist and I learned that food was an aspect that had been triggering my flare-ups,” she explained before pointing out how much your diet can affect your overall health. “Since my diagnosis, I’ve changed my diet to focus more on whole foods. It's definitely made me aware of what I'm putting in my body and the recipes I decide to make.”
