I felt it last weekend when I ran some errands. Halloween has passed and the orange/black candy is on sale to make room for the Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, and Christmas candy. It’s holiday season!!!
This is a bittersweet time for most of us. With all the food, travel, and celebration it’s both fun & hectic. I am actually hosting Thanksgiving for the first time ever. This is a REALLY big deal, as you can imagine. I have about 20 family members coming to my home for the holiday. What an honor!!
I find it helpful to head into the holidays setting some loose goals for myself. I find that if I have no boundaries with food & routine, I’ll just do whatever. That usually means way too much refined sugar, white flour, & tasty meats. All of these items are fine in moderation, but when you struggle with moderation, it’s easy to let it all creep in.
In preparation my anticipated holiday eating, I’ll be teaching a TWIST IT UP: HEALTHY HOLIDAY FOODS Cooking Class on 11/20. I will be making some of my favorite traditional recipes with healthy whole ingredients. Some of my personal favorites are pumpkin pie and mashed potatoes!!
What is your favorite modified holiday recipe??
