Don’t you love it when a food is both a comfort food and good for you? I know I do because I feel fine eating a little extra even if I’m already full. Mediterranean soups are totally in this category. What you’ll notice about Mediterranean soups is that they contain beans, legumes, dark leafy greens, herbs, and lots of vegetables.
One of the reasons I love Thanksgiving so much is its predictability of dishes that will delight my taste buds and fill my belly. Turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, green bean and sweet potato casseroles and cranberry sauce are always on the table (even at my vegetarian Aunt Sydna’s Thanksgiving table). Traditional recipes withstanding, I still love to prepare a few Mediterranean dishes every year and I find they are always well received alongside the Turkey and gravy. I hope you enjoy these healthy Thanksgiving recipes that may even create some new traditions in the years to come.

This recipe blends the spices of Morocco (cumin, ginger, turmeric, cinnamon) with a New England twist (molasses).

“This program is a way of life, one which I have adopted successfully, and more importantly one which I have sustained for over one year now. My weight remains steady at 160 pounds (down from 216). My energy levels rival that of someone 20 years younger than me (I’m now 57), enabling me to exercise in any way that I desire, from lifting weights to intense cardio sessions.”

“After completing my 10-week program, I had a regularly-scheduled appointment with my doctor. Because my cholesterol has always been above the normal range (229 last year) I requested that she test it again this year. I’m happy to report that my total cholesterol dropped to 169, which is in the normal range, and all my other numbers improved as well.”
