Thanksgiving Recipe Roundup

Thanksgiving Food & Recipes Round-Up

  • Eating Bird Food’s Healthy Thanksgiving Recipe Round-Up. In particular I like the look of the Vegan Walnut Loaf and Maple Roasted Brussels. There are also a few squash recipes in there and I think you all know how much I like squash.
  • The Yummy Life’s Make-Ahead Cornbread Stuffing. Cornbread? Stuffing? I’m in! (Maybe you call stuffing dressing?) I will likely add extra broth if and when I make this because I like really really moist stuffing. I like it best when it’s cooked right inside the bird.
  • J3nn’s Grain-Free Gluten-Free Bread Rolls. I’m not gluten or grain free but these still look delicious.
  • My RDealistic Diet posted a simple recipe for Sausage and Cauliflower Spaghetti this week. Do you guys remember Self’s blog, “Eat Like Me” by an RD named Cristin? Well, Cristin is back with a new blog and this is it! I remember reading her blog years ago – over 4 years ago actually – and that is how I got hooked on healthy living blogs. She is one of my favorites.
  • Mark’s Daily Apple posted a really cool recipe for Raw Butternut Squash Slaw. I have so many butternuts from my CSA that I think I will have to make this!
  • Lest you doubt my love for squash, here is a Healthy Butternut Squash Muffins recipe by Live and Love to Eat.
  • I didn’t post about this when I should have, but Veronica recently hosted a bake sale to benefit a fellow blogger, Suzie of Two Dogs in the Kitchen, to help pay her medical bills. All of the baked goods at the sale looked awesome and most of them have links to the recipe, so here is the Baked Goods post. I am very interested in the Wookie Cookies.

November Goals; Pure Yoga Review

Back at the end of June, I joined a yoga studio in my neighborhood. It’s a beautiful studio – Pure Yoga, owned and operated by Equinox – and I go fairly regularly. The studio is in the basement levels of a building on 86th street, but the lack of natural light is not even noticeable. The facilities are absolutely beautiful and the showers…


…Are to die for. This photo doesn’t do them justice.

Anyway, I wanted to highlight the studio because it’s included in some of my November goals. Here we go:

  1. Go to 15 yoga classes this month. (I wanted to make it 20, but I am going to be traveling for 1 week and I don’t think 20 is doable.)
  2. Floss once a day (night). I floss but sometimes I miss a day.
  3. Try 3 new restaurants. Bobby and I eat out a lot – but we tend to go to the same places over and over again.
  4. Try 3 new dishes at restaurants I already go to.
  5. Go to a yoga class on my business trip (to… India! More later.).
  6. Stay healthy during holiday/family gatherings. For me this means making the difficult decision – bread, wine, or dessert?
  7. Test and then make a new recipe for Thanksgiving dinner (this year it’s sort of potluck-style).
  8. Read 2 books.

What are your November goals?
