Sugar Free Sunday and Thanksgiving

Welcome to one of the sweetest weekly virtual potluck get-together ever! Yes indeed — it is Sugar Free Sunday! We host it every Sunday to exchange incredible sugar free recipes. Inspiration to start the week right? You bet!

I love festivals! And like all festivals, thanksgiving for me has always been about getting together with people you care, over food! Secretly, I wait for November, because then I have two months of festivity in the atmosphere and come New Years, I tend to go down in the dumps for a bit, thinking that it will be ten months before the next round of merriment. No, no other festival or time has the same effect for me, unless of course it is celebrating Diwali in India… Aaah, sweet memories…

So how do you make Thanksgiving Sugar Free? I loved the ideas in this post. The thought of using toasted pecans on the sweet potatoes instead of marshmallows, and a bit of ginger in the cranberry sauce, got my tastebuds all revved up.

I also found this interesting infographic with information about Thanksgiving that I didn’t know and I thought of sharing it here.

Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

    Interesting! As a vegetarian I am always horrified when I see these types of statistics!

      Hi Vicky, I actually found another infographic which was a bit too much for me too (and I eat chicken and seafood :P). In this one, I loved the facts like a woman in the late 1800s, Sarah Josepha Hale, campaigned for the Thanksgiving holiday!
