At first blush, mid-December may not seem like the right time of year for this cool salad (even though it uses cream cheese, it’s surprisingly fresh and light), but with all the holiday parties happening right now, this will make for a lovely bright spot on the potluck table.
I originally published this recipe last year, and it instantly became one of our favorite Thanksgiving dishes. Since some of you are probably scrambling with last-minute holiday preparations, I thought I’d bring it back to the top of the stack and share it with you today — it’s an easy recipe, and can be prepped in advance. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
Since Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and a lot of people have found my blog since I originally published this in November 2011, I thought I’d bring it back to the top of the stack and share it with you today. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving, filled with love, family, friends, gratitude…and garlic.
I serve these eggs several times a week, adjusting the type of greens or other additions depending on what’s in the fridge. Sometimes I add mushrooms and bacon, sometimes onions and kale. Feel free to mix it up with whatever you have on hand.
I actually don’t crave full-blown desserts these days. These little, no-bake bites usually offer both satisfaction and nourishment – something that cake can’t do! They’re part snack, part dessert, and completely customizable to your current sweet tooth.
There isn’t a stronger parent trap at the grocery store than the one in the breakfast aisle. We began parenthood as two former kids raised by Tony the Tiger and Toucan Sam, and it was tough trying to navigate breakfast without a box.
I think it’s imperative for people to know that eating right doesn’t have to be complicated, and more importantly (except for during this challenge, of course) it doesn’t have to be all-or-nothing. So as you near the end of your own challenge, I encourage you to think about what unprocessed rules will soon become your own “new normal.”
Just because we know we should eat healthier over the holidays, doesn’t mean we need to sacrifice taste, our waistlines or our food “morals.” It is totally possible to enjoy all the flavors of the holidays without having to compromise.
