My family and I simply refuse to feel deprived because we make the choice to feel energetic instead of overweight and foggy during any holiday. We want our focus to be where it’s supposed to be: on gratitude and helping others during the holiday.
We feel blessed and we want you to join us. You can enjoy your holiday with your loved ones more than ever with these simple, brain-healthy swaps:
Tana’s Marinated Turkey: If you’re serious about having the moistest turkey anyone has ever tasted, try soaking it in a wet brine for 18 hours before moving to preparation. But beware! You will become the designated turkey maker in the family forever! This recipe can also be adapted to roasted chicken.
Amen Holiday Stuffing: A favorite in our house. We often eat this as a main course with gravy and salad. Delicious, grain free, dairy free. You can also make this a vegan stuffing by increasing the amount of squash, apple and nuts and eliminating the meat.
Amen Guiltless Gravy: Enjoy the comfort of gravy with your meal, knowing it’s packed full of nutrients that help brain function.
Clever Kale Slaw: Why have coleslaw when you can change it up to the more nutritious Kale Slaw?
Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes: A healthier alternative to your traditional mashed potatoes. You’ll be surprised by how delicious these taste.
Smooth Sweet Potato Soup: Sweet potatoes raise blood sugar slowly. They’re rich in beta carotene, vitamins A and C, as well as many minerals.
Apple Cinnamon Crisp: Who says apple crisp isn’t healthy? They obviously haven’t seen this recipe. It even helps reduce inflammation. Top with Coconut Milk Whipped Cream.
