Thanksgiving recipes to keep you eating healthy from Transitions Lifestyle System


Looking for a way to prepare some Thanksgiving dishes that won’t undermine your efforts to eat healthy? Bel Air News & Views sponsor Angela DeBrigida has some suggestions straight from her Transitions Lifestyle System, a total-system approach that promotes healthy food choices, behavior modification and menu plans.

Thanksgiving Tips & Recipes…

If you are traveling to someone’s house for Thanksgiving, offer to provide something that you enjoy and know is low-glycemic, which means it won’t cause your blood sugar to spike.  For example, a veggie tray, a fruit tray, baked potatoes, pumpkin pie….yum!

Baked Sweet Potatoes

Here are three healthy ways to prepare fresh sweet potatoes:
1. Clean them and wrap them in aluminum foil. Bake them at 350 degrees for 30 minutes (or more depending on size).  Top with a pat of butter & cinnamon.
2. Peel the sweet potatoes and cut them into quarters.  Add just enough butter to flavor.  Bake for 30-45 minutes & top with cinnamon.
3. Cook them and mash them

Pumpkin Pie

Crust…chop pecans in a food processor.  Add just enough butter to bind and mix butter & pecans in the bottom of a pie dish.  Take 100% pumpkin (Libby’s canned is a great suggestion).  Mix with agave natural sweetener to desired sweetness.  Add cinnamon NOT cinnamon sugar until desired taste. Bake at 350.
