Today dawns the week of Thanksgiving.
A week of self-inflicted misery.
We will arrive hours early to our dinners,
letting our taste buds salivate to the point of excruciating torment, and then…
We will engorge our bodies with things that only a Grinch could hate.
Giant Turkeys. Hams.
Rolls and Cornbread.
Sweet Potato Casserole. With Marshmallows and brown sugar.
Gravies and Buttery Sauces
Another roll or two.
Pies. Cakes. Fudge. Puddings. Pumpkin Rolls.
Eggnog. Hot Chocolate. Spiced Cider.
Yeah, I’m looking forward to it too. But, I’m not too keen about lying in comatose state all weekend.
So in honor of healthy holiday eating, I’ll be featuring a series this week on how to include
more fruits and veggies in your cooking this season.
Fruit Fetish: Thanksgiving
This Salad from Bon Appetit would be the perfect post dinner detox.
Maybe add some cranberries for festivity?
Not Unhealthy: Stunning Stuffed Apples
This would be a yummy way to institute portion control at your dinner table. From Southern Living
Cheating: Apple-Cinnamon Strudel
Well, it’s got apples in it. And it sure does look delicious. From Martha Stewart
