Food Swap Friday – Starches

Next week is Thanksgiving, and even with healthier options, it’s easy to intake way too many calories and grams of carbohydrates. If you aren’t someone who has to pay attention to that, cool, enjoy your meal!

Unfortunately, not everyone has that ability, and so it’s nice to have a healthier option, too. Oh, but how could one take away the mashed potatoes?! BLASPHEMY – you can’t!

But honestly, either of today’s options are better for you, with the same (if not more!) flavor and texture – so why not give it a try?

Happy Thanksgiving!

There is so much to be thankful for – I won’t bore you with the list, but its plentiful! Take time today (and every day!) to count your blessings – no matter how rocky the road may be at any given moment, you are still here, still alive, and still making strides to improvement (right!?)

There is so much to be grateful for, and it can be painfully easy to overlook all of that, but make a conscious effort to recognize your blessings and be thankful for them – there is ALWAYS someone with less, ALWAYS someone with worse problems, and ALWAYS hope that things can get better – and they will!

I am grateful for a lot of things, but I am especially grateful for my dog right now, and her sweet, unconditional love. We didn’t know just how in love we were gonna fall with her when we got her, but she’s brought nothing but purpose, love, happiness, and content snuggles with her, and I am grateful to Rhode Home Rescue and my friends who fostered her for introducing us to our sweet girl!

May you all have a fabulous day!

If you feel like sharing, what’s something YOU are thankful for?

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving my dear readers! You have made it onto the list of things I am thankful for… this community, the commentary and support… helps a girl feel like she’s not alone in this battle, and there is strength in numbers!

I hope you all enjoy the day with those you hold nearest and dearest to your hearts, and cherish the time spent together, being thankful for a bounty of food, a warm environment to celebrate, and the health with which to do so.

Life is a battle, but there is always plenty of things to be thankful for!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING

May your day be nothing but delicious and lovely!
