Put Yourself First This Thanksgiving

The holidays are always hectic and it’s very easy to lose sight of your goals during this time of year, so a few weeks ago, a fellow dietitian, Rebecca Scritchfield, started the “Me Movement.” The purpose of this movement is to stay positive during the holiday season and to put yourself first to maintain your wellness.

So don’t be surprised when these foods are the stars of the next few recipes I post! The first one up is a curry that I made using sweet potatoes and collard greens. I found a Cooking Light recipe from 1999 that sounded good and I tweaked it to use what I had on hand. The original recipe called for leeks, butternut squash, serrano chiles, and a couple of other items I didnR… read more »
