My No-Sweat Thanksgiving Feast: Complete Menu and Recipes!
Posted on 17th of November, 2010 by Lévana
You know me: nothing is ever an excuse to lose my head and throw balance and nutrition to the winds when preparing a meal, even one as lavish as this Thanksgiving feast. So yes, it is a lot of wonderful food, but all sensible. You won’t have to go on a crash diet the following weekend.
For the life of me I can never understand the craziness that sets in around thanksgiving: What’s the big deal? We make much more complicated meals every shabbos. Does the turkey scare you? I have some great tips for the perfect bird: Please read it: No charge for the turkey therapy!
Most of the following recipes, and much more, appear in my new cookbook: I hope you have it! Here’s plenty of fabulous dishes to choose from. This list below includes a new killer Low Carb Cranberry Pecan Brownie Tart, many Gluten-Free Recipes
Just one more thing: Do not throw anything away (bones, skins, carcasses, leftovers meat) Keep it all safely in your freezer. Make turkey salad (below) with the leftovers, or throw it in salad.
