  10. I linked to my recipe for a unique and delicious take on Cranberry Sauce! Maple syrup stands in for a seasonal healthier alternative to white sugar (or any other kind of sweetener) and some crystallized and/or freshly grated ginger subs for the usual citrus. SO GOOD!
    Thanks for hosting, Sarah!

    I appreciate the work you do to host Monday Mania! Thanks.
    I’ve included recipes for Cream of Potato Soup and Turkey Pot Pie. If you make the soup, you’ll already have the base for the pot pie ready to go! The Turkey Pot Pie is also great to make with the upcoming Thanksgiving leftovers.

  13. Hi Nancy,

    Hate to be the bringer of bad news, but your “skinny” recipe uses reduced fat butter, and also recommends NOT roasting the vegetables with the turkey fat. REAL butter and turkey fat from pastured, healthy turkeys are extremely beneficial in helping to supply fat-soluble vitamins that are needed to absorb all of the other vitamins and minerals present in vegetables. Also, whole food fats VERY rarely cause weight gain, and are, in fact, very healthy to eat, especially saturated fats. Complex carbohydrates, such as starches, are the real culprits, as they spike the blood sugar, causing your body to release a large amount of insulin and store all of that excess sugar as fat, while eating whole fats stabilizes the blood sugar and preventing the spikes from happening in the first place. But don’t take my word for it, do some of your own research! Check out, and the book “Eat Fat, Lose Fat” to start with. I think you will find it an enlightening experience!

    Best of luck!

  28. Thanks for hosting. The Weston A. Price Foundation and the conference inspired my latest post, My Real Food Plate. This plate is made up of real food that I actually eat, based on the research of Dr. Weston A. Price, the recommendations of the Weston A. Price Foundation, and what makes me feel good and healthy. It is far superior to the USDA “MyPlate” and it tastes a lot better.

    I’m sure you had a great time at the conference, Sarah, wish I was there.
