334 days to book launch! Happy Thanksgiving!
This blog shows the feast I had for Thanksgiving! I was thankful to spend the day with great people and great quality food! There was absolutely non GMO's or junk foods at our table!
Here is what I had:
I made cranberry sauce with: cranberries, chia seeds and honey.
Here is the recipe: http://www.theearthdiet.org/23/post/2013/11/turkey-burger-with-cranberry-sauce.html
This is the Classis Cashew Cheesecake with a pecan crust. Here is the recipe: http://www.theearthdiet.org/23/post/2013/11/classic-cashew-cheesecake-with-almond-crust.html
This is the organic turkey we had! I stuffed it with brown rice pasta so we could have a gluten free stuffing! Here is the recipe for stuffing: http://www.theearthdiet.org/16/post/2013/05/stuffing-gluten-free.html
These are a recipe from the new Earth Diet book 2014, Coconut Basil Sweet Potato Fries - the flavors go so well together.
Here is Brussel sprouts baked in the oven with purple onion.
This was my plate! My first plate! Haha I had two! Such a delicious combination of foods, I love how the colors are all there; orange, green, purple, red and then the turkey protein and brown rice pasta. To add a raw element I had lime water :)
Emily, who is an Earth Diet Mentor for Personalized Programs made eggplant nuggets today! These are a great vegan dish. Here is the recipe: http://www.theearthdiet.org/10/post/2013/02/eggplant-nuggets.html
I love how we live in a day and age where we can pack our foods with nutrients, while still making them delicious. Do you believe we can have it all? I do! These holidays I won't beat eating junk foods, I will be eating healthy desserts that taste so so good!
Happy thanksgiving everyone!
5 things I'm super grateful for right now:
1. My body is healthy and pain free. I can breathe and move freely.
2. That I am in a warm safe comfortable place with a fire!
3. That my family and friends are alive today.
4. That I get to eat delicious foods every day that excite me.
5. That I am free of my past addiction to bingeing on junk foods!!! Freedom.
