For many of us, Thanksgiving means consuming large amounts of turkey or ham, mashed potatoes and stuffing and then topping it off with a hearty slice of pie. That is very often followed by a nap, or a “food coma,” as it has become known as.
We now know that the nap is the result of not only overeating, but our bodies crashing from ingesting all those carbohydrates. Maite Bou is a local healthy living cook, advocate and consultant who shares her passion for the subject on her website, www.maitebou.com.
She has created a healthy version of a pecan pie and non-potato mashed potatoes using cauliflower instead of the more carbo-loaded spuds.
