November is a favorite month around here. Not only do we celebrate the last two birthdays of the year, but the feast to beat all feasts occurs at the end of the month. My little gluttons gourmands adore Thanksgiving when we bring out all our favorite once-a-year treats.

And although, Nanna’s Toffee Dream is certainly worth fighting for, it’s a little heavy on the sugar. This year I’m hoping to strike a happy balance between preparing the special dishes we enjoy at the holiday time as well as avoiding excess. In the immortal words of Ma Ingalls, “Enough is as good as a feast.”

That’s why I’m so excited to be a part of the “Have a Healthy Holiday” series starting on the 15th of this month. I’ll be partnering with some great bloggers and good friends to bring you healthier holiday recipes this year, giving you what you need to create “nutritious and delicious” from appetizers to desserts. These girls are keeping me and my food goals in check.

So, join me and Good Life Eats, The Thrifty Mama, Balancing Beauty and Bedlam, Saving Naturally, Surviving the Stores, and The Five Dollar Dinner Mom as we cook up all kinds of good eats this month.

What’s YOUR plan for good eating this year?

  1. Oh, I am excited about this! I have lost twenty pounds since the beginning of September, and a big part of that has been drastically changing the way our family eats. I would love to see some great healthier ideas for Thanksgiving and Christmas meals. Looking forward to it!

  2. This is what I am all about :-). Looking forward to it!
    Will one of the posts teach us how to eat some of those pies without going on a sugar high?

  3. I am so excited about this event and can’t wait to see all the wonderful recipes!

  4. Cooking Light has a lot of really good holiday ideas. I’ll be 36 weeks pregnant and hosting my first Thanksgiving, so who knows what I’ll come up with!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
