This Thanksgiving is certainly different than most we've ever celebrated. Regardless of if you'll be with loved ones or will be eating solo, honoring and respecting good health is part of our spiritual growth on this planet.
Seasonal harvest foods are here to bring us some health and hearth into our home during the cooler months.
And for this Thanksgiving, my hopes are to inspire people to eat nutritious food cooked in a simple way, and to appreciate everything that we have/had.
I made this recipe recently during my live Vegan Cooking 101 Demo with Guided Fitness. In that cooking class, I chose healthier versions of some seasonal favorites by cooking and prepping some of the most common holiday side dishes differently. In that class, I also demonstrated cauliflower mashed potatoes and Sweet Potato Orange + Leek Side Dish.
The holidays can still be enjoyable for those who have gluten/dairy issues or food allergies through whole food and dairy-free recipes.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today and creates a vision for tomorrow."
