The holidays are a time for celebration and feasting, and far be it from me to suggest otherwise! However, simple carbohydrate foods (sugars and starches) are the primary cause of overweight, obesity and diabetes. These foods are also highly associated with cardiovascular disease and cancer. How can you enjoy the holidays and not compromise your health? Try these super-tasty-super-healthy recipes and find out for yourself. Yes, you can “have your cake and eat it too”!
We’re having T-Day dinner with friends and family tomorrow evening. Here is our contribution to the Thanksgiving Day feast:
Appetizers: KetOmega deviled eggs, salmon/cream cheese pate with veggie crudités and pork rinds
Din-din: TURKEY (and lots of it!), alfredo green beans, stuffing, “ketatoes” (cauliflower mashed potatoes), cranberry sauce, broccoli in cheese sauce, mushroom (or giblet) gravy
Dessert: cheesecake, pumpkin pie, and backgammon pie (to swoon for!)
Beverage: white wine, coffee, other no-carb “diners choice.”
So much great food, so little gilt! To find the recipes for these delicacies, click here:
And speaking of being thankful that we live in a free country, Next week I’ll be alerting you to a SERIOUS breach of your health freedom: your vitamin and herb supplements will be outlawed as of Aug., 2005…. no joke!

In the meantime, have a healthy, Happy Thanksgiving Day!
