What are 10 Things we generally “GET RIGHT” at Thanksgiving time!!

#1 We intend to remember to be Thankful for all we have!

#1 repeat – We intend to remember to be Thankful for all we have!

#2 We use the turkey drippings to make a healthy “bone broth” gravy

#3 We use the leftover turkey carcass to make bone broth soup

#4 We take advantage of the healthy cranberry. Wise cranberry sauce includes gogi berries too.

#5 We remember that the CONDIMENT TRAY used to be an important part of a meal – but most of us dont know how to prepare it so that we get the REAL benefits from it.

#6 The traditional gelatin dish !  If you still have this as part of your “traditional” dinner, this also has an extremely healthy part of your dinner – or any meal or snack. I use to go to a friends house when I was little and she always had a gelatin “salad” at Thanksgiving.

#7 We make use of healthy root vegetables.

#8 We use alot of colorful foods for this meal. A variety of colors means a variety of nutrients.

#9 A great Thanksgiving table will use cultured dairy. An awesome meal will have cultured beverages too.

#10 Even desserts have a healthy component : we use pumpkin and apples and even lots of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger.  Nuts are used alot but most of us were never taught how to prepare these in a healthy way.

Its not often that we get our Family together to share a meal! Why not make your next holiday meal together extra special and nutritious !

I will be offering a series of posts on how to make your next meal “extraordinarily nutritious”.

How to Make Homemade Apple Strudel – a video

Coming to dinner ??      This may happen!

dining family

The other night a family who comes every winter was having dinner.  They come for a winter Family getaway – usually about a dozen of them.  They rent our Lakehouse for the weekend, have a lantern lit sleigh ride and generally take a few days to enjoy an Adirondack Winter.

So – at dinner – actually at dessert time – one of the teenagers asked his mom how to  make strudel …he was eating a wild blueberry strudel accented with a little marzipan!

So here is what happened the next night.

We had an impromptu cooking demo and I showed him how to make an easy strudel at home

I brought out the ingredients just as they were starting dinner and with his help, I created an apple strudel , with some variations,  just for fun.   The strudel was wrapped and it went directly to the oven – and the Family enjoyed the strudel for dessert!

How fun – thanks for asking Hunter!   Now go make a strudel!  I hear the blueberry is your favorite!
