It’s the season of holiday hosting! I have tips and menu ideas to help make your Thanksgiving and beyond easy, delicious and nutritious.
First, give thanks for good food that’s also good for you like Grapes from California! Studies suggest that resveratrol and certain flavonoids found in grapes may positively influence immune function.Among the 90 varieties of California grapes are a variety of colors, flavors, shapes, sizes and textures.Fresh California grapes add color, crunch and a light touch of sweetness to holiday desserts, salads, entrees and side dishes dessert like in this Roasted Squash and Grape Salad with Tahini.
Next, a holiday menu is incomplete without stuffing. My breadless stuffing gets its flavor and protein from Pacific Foods’ bone broth made from non-GMO, organic-certified ingredients like chicken and beef slow-simmered alongside flavorful vegetables, herbs and cider vinegar. Every cup serving contains 9 grams of protein and about 40 calories. Whether you’re keto, paleo, gluten-free or just looking for a simple way to add a delicious protein boost to your favorite recipes, Pacific Foods’ bone broths have exactly what you need.
And it’s not the holidays without pecan pie! Pull out all the stops this holiday season by using both Country Crock® Plant Butter and Plant Cream to whip up your favorite desserts like this delicious Maple Pecan Pie with whipped plant cream. Country Crock® Plant offers a variety of products that are 100% dairy free and 100% delicious alternatives to dairy butter and dairy cream. Made with plant-based ingredients, these products cook, bake, and whip like their dairy counterparts, and can be used in the same amounts as dairy butter and cream in cooking and baking recipes.
