Nutrilicious (adj) – 1. Something that is both delicious and nutritious
I started with the Pumpkin Corn Bread, which Danielle and I had made at our pumpkin party a few months back. The recipe was amazing so I wanted to make it again, but this time amp up the nutrition by substituting some ingredients.
- Smart balance for regular butter- slightly decreases amount of fat, but replaces saturated fat (bad) with mono and polyunsaturated fat (good).
- Egg beaters for regular eggs- decreases amount of fat, calories and cholesterol.
- Fat free milk for 1%- Decreases calories and fat
After preparing, out came this yummy pumpkin corn bread, perfect as a healthified side at our Thanksgiving feast!
Next on the cooking agenda was the Quinoa. I’ve been waiting to try one of Emily’s recipes and was happy with my decision on this dish. I combined the ingredients
The fall flavors and wholesome ingredients made it a nutritious and delicious Thanksgiving side. I recommend serving immediately, as I reheated it when I got to my aunt’s place, which made the pumpkin seeds chewy instead of crunchy. Despite this, it was still a hit!
Thanksgiving this year was spent with my family in NY. I went with my parents to my Aunt and Uncle’s and enjoyed a wonderful holiday celebration. For dinner we had a tasty mix of the standards: veggies, stuffing, cranberries, sweet and regular mashed potatoes, and of course, the turkey!
I also enjoyed quality time with the family.
The trip home to NY also consisted of other fun events:
Father/daughter wine tasting and trail hikes
How was everyone’s Thanksgiving? I hope you all had a fabulous holiday! Have a healthy and happy week.
