I look at healthy recipes year round, it's just a matter of finding the time to make them, LOL.

I'm definitely trying to prepare a few dishes that are healthier this year. I may end up being the only one who eats them but I just want a nice variety of options this year.

Each day is a great new start for whatever you need it to be. Embrace each day.

I'm thinking of ordering a smoked turkey and having salad with it and something like butternut squash for a dessert-like finish. I might also make a sweet potato dish.

Yes for the turnip casserole, no for the once-a-year baked goodies

I've already made modifications over the years to many of our favorite recipes. The remainder of our traditional dishes will stay just the way they are. While eating healthfully is important, there is more to life than counting calories or fat grams.

Absolutely, but I will still make some favorites to share at our holiday gathering!
