Healthy Options for Thanksgiving

We celebrated Thanksgiving at my sis’s house.  She is very supportive of our new lifestyle change and was very diligent to be certain that we would have options come dinner time.  We brought some of our own dishes to help us with our choices.


Garlic and Herb Mashed Cauliflower

This was a delicious dish once we got the cauliflower to the right consistency.  Rose ended up using the hand-held emulsion blender.  We never missed the mashed potatoes.

Slightly Sweet Cranberry Sauce

Dad can’t go without homemade cranberry sauce.  This definitely topped his traditional recipe that was loaded with sugar.  Those who like cranberry sauce, loved this recipe.  I could have used some honey for more sweetness but overall, I enjoyed it.

Garlic Roasted Sweet Potatoes


This was my favorite side.  It was good hot or cold.  This would be a great snack to have handy in the fridge.

Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a family favorite and it was one of our splurges.  Maybe, one day, I’ll be able to find a suitable substitute.  I did eliminate the Worchester Sauce.

Grain Free Carrot Cake

Yummmmmmmmmmmmm!!!  I’m sure there was a time when I would gawk at the idea of a healthy dessert option, this dessert did away with all my past hang-ups.  We have been eating it non-stop since Thanksgiving Day.  Dragonfly has even led the troops in eating it for breakfast.

Papa’s Turkey

This was the star of the show.
