The food, the family time, and the beautifully crisp weather outside.
I always go home to Arizona and visit my parents, and my grandparents make the trek all the way from Canada to join us!
It's a wonderful celebration.
I am often asked by my followers how I navigate Thanksgiving both from a weight loss/maintenance perspective as well as a vegan perspective - the answer is the same for both!
I like to make a variety of lightened up side dishes and enjoy the HECK out of them!!!
This stuffing is perfect because it is low in calories and fat, and everyone at the table will love it!
More side dish recipes will be coming this week, so stay tuned.
In the meantime, this archive of low-fat vegan Thanksgiving recipes is a great resource for us plant-based Thanksgiving lovers!
Enjoy, and I hope you all have a wonderful holiday!
