This Thanksgiving will be one of the few Thanksgivings that I won't be spending with my parents. They will be on a much deserved vacation to Australia. At first I was saddened by the prospect of not spending the holidays with my parents. And then I remembered how lucky I am to be spending the holidays with Cassie, Colin, and Cailya. I almost forgot that this is only the second Thanksgiving that I will be spending with Cailya.
One of my favorite Thanksgiving desserts is pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie has a special place in my heart not only because it is a tasty treat, but because it evokes feelings of tradition, family, and togetherness. A couple tips for making a healthier pumpkin pie include making your own pumpkin puree (which is less processed), and making your pie crust out of almond flour instead of wheat flour.
Try making a healthier pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving and be thankful for those friends and family that you can spend your Thanksgiving with!
