Season’s Eatings!

Alexandria, Virginia
October 30, 2014

The holidays are a time to enjoy good food and time-honored traditions. With family and friends gathered ’round, you want to serve a meal to remember. The November 2014 issue of Diabetes Forecast®, the Healthy Living Magazine of the American Diabetes Association, offers 12 healthy, festive recipes inspired by favorite traditions from around the United States. 

In Holiday Celebrations from Coast to Coast, readers will be drawn to the Midwestern seasonal harvest expressed in Wild Rice and Cherry Pilaf, while those who enjoy Southern flavors will want to whip up Holiday Collard Greens. Fans of the West Coast can turn to fresh and natural sides with a hint of heat, such as with the Chili-Roasted Shallots and Brussels Sprouts, while others sample the Northeast’s more traditional bounty with an Apple-Walnut Salad. No matter which region you visit this season, you only need to add turkey and a favorite dessert to round out the perfect healthy holiday table.
