Unforgettable Thanksgiving Healthy Swaps

unforgettable thanksgiving (1)I can’t believe it ALREADY Thanksgiving. OR that it’s going to be nearly 90* here in San Diego this week! Eek! So crazy. The holiday season certainly sneaked up on me. You too?

I wanted to share with you some amazing recipes to add to your feast. It’s totally possible to have a delish meal made with amazing food and not feel bloated and blah afterwards.

And on another note….eat your veggies and your turkey first. That way by the time you eat some of the higher calorie foods (like the stuffing!) you’re likely to eat less cause you’ve filled up on nutrient dense foods.

And if you’re wanting more of a reset after Thanksgiving, this is my GO TO Nutrition Jump Start! I can help you with it too! Just message me!

Easy Simple 3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies- Gluten Free

cookies (2 of 2)I promised some quality time to my daughter early in the day and things just got busy.  She was pleading for attention in the simplest of ways.  I knew I needed to set aside that time with her.  So after dinner, she and I went into the kitchen to do a little baking together.  Being that we  try to eat healthy, chocolate is oftentimes not allowed in our house.  Even if we do have it, it would be gone within a day or two. Thus, we didn’t have much by way of ingredients to make anything.  But most people have these ingredients in their homes.

  • 1 cup sugar (we use organic raw sugar)
  • 1 cup peanut butter (check your pb. It’s often a common place they place additives and sugars. Make sure you buy all-natural peanut butter. And organic if possible. There’s some theories regarding the rise in peanut allergies being related to pesticides and what not in the soils and fields)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbl of cacao powder (we put it into ours and it was delish)

Mix and form into cookies! I bake at 350 for about 7-10 minutes or  so. Not sure if that’s correct but it seemed to work for us. cookies (1 of 2)
