Tagged with:

Last night I watched the “Biggest Loser”, a special on where are they now. It looked back on past contestants who have won from each season and how they have maintained their weight loss. A part of the show was focused on preparing a healthy, but a delicious  meal. The celebrity chef took a common  dish and created a healthy version. For example, stuffing is traditionally made from butter and bread; while the healthier version was made from wheat bread, apples and oil.  The Chef also suggested  cooking individual, skinless turkey breasts, instead of an entire turkey.

About this time of year we enter the festival of foods and family: Thanksgiving.

And Thanksgiving Day is just the beginning of the party season with its abundance of cookies, candy, pie, cakes and other delights of the season.  It brings us joy to share delicious foods and special drinks with our family and friends. Delicious at the time! But we are so sorry afterwards.
