Thanksgiving is just around the corner! I hope everyone is prepping for your big feasts where you get to spend time with your loved ones and give thanks for the blessings we have I love Thanksgiving because I get to see my family from out of town. My mom and sisters and I are going to be busy in the kitchen concocting some yummy THM food- I can’t wait!!
I wanted to give you some THM Thanksgiving options. Even if you are taking the day off, it might be fun to make a recipe or two to add to your menu or take to the house you are celebrating at and then you can have some yummy THM leftovers to eat for the rest of the week guilt free;)
light turkey meat
green salad w/ light dressing
Creamless Creamy Veggies- p. 352 in book
sugar free cranberry sauce
sugar free jello w/ diced apples, raspberries and pineapple
*To keep it in E territory, use just a sprinkling of pecans to give it a little crunch
apple crisp or apple crumble (p. 338- THM cook book)
*Obviously I will go over my fat allotment for E meals just a smidge, but it’s still better than eating completely off plan in my opinion
S meal: ( 3 hours later;)
dark turkey meat w/ gravy
Green bean cassarolle- (p. 358- old book)
Macafoni and Cheese- (p. 359- old book)
Stuffing- (I used a different recipe last year, but want to try this one this year!)
Pumpkin Pie- see recipe for Pumpkin Treat in the old THM book and make a crust using crushed pecans and butter
I also just discovered Mrs. Criddle’s pumpkin cream cake which is one of my new favorites so I may make that instead of the pumpkin roll, decisions, decisions!
What’s on your menu for Thanksgiving?
