In an ideal world, Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner would be a warm, festive experience, where everyone remains sober, no one brings up old family feuds, and children sit with their napkins in their laps and chew with their mouths closed. I wish this kind of Normal Rockwell holiday upon everyone and everyone I know…but I am betting that if you’re like most of us, Aunt Jane will drink too much wine, your kids will last all of 10 minutes before someone has a meltdown or breaks heirloom crystal, and your little sister will accuse you of ruining her life. (Again.)
Make health the centerpiece on your holiday table with this meatless main dish made from wholesome, vegan ingredients. Guests will gobble up every bite without thinking of turkey, especially when served with all the traditional sides. No need to heat your oven for hours—just pick a bean (any bean!), blend a can with gluten-free baking mix and fresh herbs, then bake for about 20 minutes. Use a loaf pan and divvy up slices or make mini loaves for elegant individual servings. Happy Thanksgiving!
I’ve noticed a trend among my brood on Thanksgiving: the adults will drool over the usual, traditional fare—turkey, gravy, vegetables, potatoes—but the kids pick at their plates and save their appetites and enthusiasm for dessert. Our children haven’t been raised in a typical, “meat and potatoes” type home, so the sight of a slab of poultry with bones and gravy and colorful dollops of side dishes is a little foreign to them.
With Thanksgiving in a few weeks, we’re getting into the full swing of the holiday season. You may already have party invitations in the mail and travel plans on the calendar. Do you feel a bit worried about getting it all done while managing to stay fit and still enjoying the special occasions that come only once a year?
It’s definitely possible to have a healthy holiday season without having to deprive yourself of goodies and special treats. Here are a few guidelines to help get you through:
A creamy casserole made without heavy cream—now that’s something to be thankful for! Seasonal squash and baby spinach star in this healthy, hearty side dish that’s perfect for holiday dinners or any night of the week. Short on time? Pick up a package of pre-cubed butternut squash to skip a step. And if there’s no nutritional yeast on hand, a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese can be subbed in.
