Family events can be tough and you don't have to be a vegetarian or a vegan to recognize that the typical Thanksgiving meal is heavy. My best advice, therefore, is to stick with the side dishes. Choose carefully and load up on the lighter options, taking small portions of the heavier, more decadent delights. Here are some of my favourite Thanksgiving Feast creations -- season appropriate, taste-bud delighting and wonderfully health promoting.
Sometimes we all need a little reminder of what we're grateful for -- like a long weekend, good food and our families. We hope you enjoy some of these simple Thanksgiving recipes and craft ideas. Be warned -- there are a lot of delicious dessert recipes ahead (but we didn't leave out the brussels sprouts).
