Do you need to plan a THM Thanksgiving dinner? I’ve got you covered with a slew of great recipes to try out!
Food…you gotta love it! And, if you don’t…I’m so, so sorry for what I am about to do to you.
As Solomon wisely pointed out in Ecclesiastes, there are only so many things over which we have control. So much of this life is hit or miss on whether or not it will work out.
But, food provides an opportunity to savor and take delight in the palette pleasing of the moment. To fill the senses to the brim with sight, touch, taste, and smell…maybe even sound if the roasting, chewing, snapping, and cutting of good food makes your mouth water.
Take the day as it is. Enjoy the moment for what it is. Choose to be at peace and “eat, drink, and be merry.”
THM Thanksgiving Recipe Collection
Here is a round-up of what I consider to be the best THM Recipe posts out there this Thanksgiving season, as well as any tweaks I would make (if any). And, just in case you were wondering, here is my collection from last year’s Thanksgiving (it was all delicious!!!). May your day be full of blessings and joy!
Simple Sliced Vegetables and Hummus
Sliced Sweet Potato Chips and Chive Dip (from Behind the Bites) (make sure to choose low fat options for the sour cream and mayonnaise in the dip)
Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal (from Bubbly Nature Creations) (I could see this as a side dish, similar to a sweet potato fluff idea)
Crispy Autumn Kale Salad (from How Sweet It Is)
Sugar-Free Sweet Potato Casserole (from Low Carb Diets) (I would sub stevia as the sugar substitute, and drop the pecans down to ½ cup for a sprinkle, rather than a serious topping. You could also sub the egg for 3 egg whites)
