It's that time of year when we stuff
our faces ‘til we wobble,
So this Thanksgiving cook up yummy
green organic gobble!
Before you run out and grab that familiar can of cranberry sauce or boxed stuffing this year, consider making your own organic recipes and hold a Green Thanksgiving Dinner - just make sure you have plenty of safe, reusable food containers for the scrumptious leftovers!
- Organic food recipes are offered through Organic Valley's extensive database, which includes recipes for Thanksgiving using nutritional, organic produce and also offers gluten free, vegetarian and low-carb dish ideas! There is also a variety of organic online communities that you can join as well as a kids' site with games for your little ones.
- Meals For You has over 8,000 organic recipes and includes nutrition tips and guides, dietary exchange tables for those on special diets, and an advanced search for those with food allergies.
- The organic cookbook receiving the highest rating on Amazon.com is Food to Live By: The Earthbound Farm Organic Cookbook. At just under $15, this makes a great holiday gift for similarly-minded family and friends.
This Cranberry Mushroom Turkey Stuffing is a twist on a typical Thanksgiving side dish and mixes Organic Valley products with organic fruits and veggies that can be purchased at your local farmer's market.
Pour this Easy Turkey Gravy onto your turkey and mashed potatoes this year and check out some of the other organic holiday recipes at Whole Foods!
