I’m stunned that November is already here. Not only does our family have two birthdays this month, but we’ve decided to stay home for Thanksgiving and cook up a storm at our place. Since I would like to lose this baby weight weight that I can now call my own, I don’t want to go too far overboard when it comes to good eating.

But, November is such a good month for good eats, is it not?

That’s why I’m so excited to be a part of the “Have a Healthy Holiday” series starting on the 15th of this month. I’ll be partnering with some great bloggers and good friends to bring you healthier holiday recipes this year, giving you what you need to create “nutritious and delicious” from appetizers to desserts.These girls are keeping me and my food goals in check.

So, join me and Good Life Eats, The Thrifty Mama, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam, Saving Naturally, Surviving the Stores, and The Five Dollar Dinner Mom as we cook up all kinds of good eats this month.

How do YOU approach Thanksgiving Feasts?

Healthy or not?

    In past years Thanksgiving was no-holds-barred and calories be damned…but this year will be different. Several of my peeps (including me!) have lost weight this year so I’m going to include some healthier options. I’m going to try a lower fat version of stuffing, roasted brussels sprouts and some modified desserts at the very least. Maybe mashed cauliflower alongside the mashed potatoes? We’ll see…and I better make sure the bowls are clearly labeled lest my father-in-law take the wrong one. Oof.

    I am on Weight Watchers so I’ll be tracking everything I eat – and we may have up to 3 family gatherings that weekend so tracking will be a MUST. My goal is to not gain- no stress about trying to lose over the holiday. As long as I don’t gain I’ll be successful!
