With the holidays coming up, eating can get pretty heavy and decadent pretty quickly. Don’t forget to continue to eat the rainbow during those off days and make the most of the nutrients those foods can give you! This one is packed with fiber, antioxidants and protein. It would be easy to throw together as a leftover-centric meal! Quick, especially if most of the ingredients are already cooked!
It’s almost Thanksgiving! Yay! It’s my favorite holiday of the year. I am super sad though because this year I cannot be with my family. My attending isn’t taking the time off which means I don’t get any extra days. Unfortunately, the flights to get home with the short time that I will have are just not conducive. I’m thankful though that I was able to see my parents last week for a bit. It was wonderful. So, I’m trying to stay positive. Well see what I end up doing.
Aside from that, it’s just that time for the November Redux post. This month’s theme I think is quite appropriate. It was suggested by Casey the College Celiac.
Naturally Colored Holiday Treats and Trimmings
Holiday feast season is upon us. But there’s lots of room on the table for brightly-colored, nutritious foods. Show us your sweet or savory, naturally-colored/naturally-dyed holiday fare.
I thought there might be plenty of recipes coming out for the Holiday dinner table itself, but what about for all those tasty leftovers you may have? Not saying that this couldn’t be a side, but it would be easy to put together with the leftovers you may have the next day! I mean, leftovers are the best right!?
This dish is packed full of nutrients, protein, fiber and antioxidants! So take full advantage of all your colors to get you feeling your best (especially if you have had some heavy days of eating, which you should!)
If you are interested in some of the other recipes that would work around your dinner/dessert table feel free to click on those below!!
Remember, Thanksgiving is a glorious holiday that in my mind that is all about good food and close family time. Please be reasonable and don’t make yourself sick with eating, but please enjoy the day and don’t feel guilty afterwards. (Also don’t let others pressure you into eating something you really don’t want). It’s one day and not one to be stressed about. There are more important things to be thinking about and to be thankful for :).

Cran-Butternut Turkey Bulgur Bowl [Clean]
- 1/2 cup bulgur cooked
- 1/3 cup butternut squash
- 1/3 cup turkey
- 1/3 cup cranberries
- few dashes cinnamon
- few dashes nutmeg
If you have everything pre-cooked, excellent! Just mix it together in a bowl and heat!
If you have only parts of the ingredients cooked then cook then you can cook the rest of them how you please (together, or separately, see notes). At the very end, stir in the cinnamon and nutmeg and eat!
If you only don't have the bulgur cooked, then cook according to instructions on package and then add in the other ingredients and heat.
If you have parts, feel free to cook the butternut squash and cranberries in with the bulgur!
