Hello Friends! I hope you’re having a good week. It’s nice to get back to normalcy after last week’s festivities, but it’s also kind of rough! I feel like my head is still on vacation. Last week was crazy between working on so many projects with brands, finishing my 2nd book (it’s coming soon!) and preparing this week’s blog posts, I forgot to register for an online class I was supposed to start this week and didn’t have the books in time to begin. Whomp…whomp… Organization at it’s finest! Oh well, I moved the start to next week and hopefully, I’ll have my head on straight by then. That is if I don’t have it up the Christmas tree. Holiday decorating needs to happen this week too. So much to do so little time! The good news is the book is almost done. In fact, here’s a sneak peak!Now let’s see some food! Today I’m sharing my Thanksgiving day eats. If you’re new to Skinny Fitalicious, What I Ate Wednesday is a post I do every week showcasing my meals from one day. It’s fun to see what other people eat in a day. It’s also great motivation for me to eat balanced and create more delicious recipes for you!
Breakfast. Butternut squash spinach breakfast bake. No holiday would be complete with this beloved bake. It’s just so good! I had planned to fry some plantains to go along with this, but my plantains although appeared ripe when I opened them they were green and black. Plantain failure.
Followed by a pumpkin oatmeal cranberry cookie. P.S. they’re only 100 calories!
Then the cooking festivities began. Last minute I decided to test a few new recipes I’ve had in my head including these rosemary balsamic roast brussels sprouts because it’s completely normal to recipe test on a holiday.
Butternut squash sweet potato fries. They just belong together.
4 ingredient healthy coconut biscuits. These are perfection. I will share these with you soon.
Dinner. The finished plate with roasted garlic cauliflower mash, coconut biscuit, butternut squash sweet potato fries, brussels sprouts and turkey tenderloin grilled in avocado oil. Thanksgiving food sure is delicious, but it doesn’t photograph so well.
Dessert. Healthy almond apple crisp. I changed the recipe a bit, substituting the coconut oil with reduced sugar maple syrup and reduced the almond flour to 1/2 cup and replaced the rest with GF oat flour. It was just as delicious as I remember it!
What was the best thing you ate on Thanksgiving? Do you use the holidays to try new recipes?
