I don't know about you, but I love Thanksgiving. I get to see my family, eat some delicious food, and usually partake in a hand of cards. In an effort to make this holiday healthier, we are making adjustments to traditional recipes without compromising the taste.
Today, we'll give you the first three recipes for your healthified Thanksgiving: stuffing, cranberries, and dinner rolls.
One of the biggest excuses I hear when people try to explain why they can't eat healthy is because of time. I get it. I work full time. I have a lengthy commute. I have hobbies and a family and dentist appointments and birthday parties just like everyone else. It can be seriously difficult to figure out when in the 168 hours of a week to fit in healthy cooking. Especially considering how speedy the unhealthy alternatives can be.
Tom Selleck. Burt Reynolds. Wilford Brimley. What do these gentlemen have in common? They all have magnificent mustaches that will take your breath away.
This month marks the 8th year of Movember. If you're not familiar with Movember, it is a month dedicated to the education and awareness of men's health issues. Mo Bros and Mo Sistas work hard to raise money for research and prevention of disease, such as prostate cancer. Mo Bros start off the month with a clean-shaven slate. As the month progresses, they are to leave their manly whisker-art untouched until the last day of November.
Did you know that today, October 29th, is National Oatmeal Day? Oatmeal is the perfect breakfast to start your morning right. It is a versatile option, allowing you to create a different twist to your breakfast each day. You can eat oats hot, cold, baked, savory, sweet; your options are endless! It’s also inexpensive and relatively easy to make. Did I mention oatmeal is healthy?
If you walk into any grocery store around this time of year, you are bound to be assaulted by the ginormous, colorful bags of Halloween candy. But instead of dolling out bag after bag of artificial colors and flavors to the trick-or-treaters in your neighborhood, how about trying out a few of these healthier alternatives? I'm not suggesting handing out bunches of kale and flaxseeds—after all I don't want your house to get TPed—but there are ways to healthify even this most junky of holiday traditions while still maintaining the festive spirit.
There is one holiday that I look forward to more than any other, purely because of the fact that it revolves around food -- and I suppose giving thanks. Traditionally, I spend the weeks prior contemplating menu items with my parents and bargaining one dish for another. However, I expect this year to be much different.
It's time. We are all getting ready for the holidays, parties, festive meals, late night drinking, office snacking, and soon enough that great excuse, “I don’t have time to hit the gym,” will all be upon us. Now is the time to prepare.
I took my daughter trick-or-treating for the first time when she was only 15 months old. She is now 16, and we still haven't missed a Halloween yet. We all know candy undermines our teeth, waistlines and health goals, but the ritual of selecting, creating and parading around in a Halloween costume, always outweighs the voice of moderation.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret—my favorite part of pumpkin carving isn't picking out the pattern or admiring my handiwork, it's scooping out the pumpkin guts! Why? Well, first of all, it's strangely satisfying to stick your hand in a pumpkin and pull out a big handful of pumpkin goo, isn't it? Secondly, the seeds! Roasting pumpkin seeds after carving is a tradition in our house. Not only is it fun and seasonally-appropriate, but pumpkin seeds are also nutritional rockstars! Pumpkin seeds are an awesome source of zinc, vitamin E, and manganese.
