We are merely days away from Thanksgiving and I don't know about you, but I am SO excited! However, I know that this feeling is not always mutual. For those looking to make healthy lifestyle changes, facing a holiday meal (and all the desserts) can be intimidating.
Always remember, this is ONE day. Practice moderation, having little bites of everything and try filling up on some veggies! If you're hosting, experiment with vegetable recipes, or bring one with you if you're attending. And ENJOY it. Enjoy the food, practice the Love&Grub mentality so you don't feel deprived. But don't forget to respect your fullness. Allow yourself to be present in the situation and enjoy your family time.
And, you can even bring a fun little bite sized dessert...my Pumpkin Pie Mini Dumplings! This month's Recipe Redux theme is all about healthy holiday desserts and these are just PERFECT.
It's kind of amazing.
Do you HAVE to make dough? Absolutely not! These can also be made with puff pastry or wonton wrappers. The baking time may need to be adjusted, but definitely worth trying!
Let's get cooking!
