Beyond the Plate at Thanksgiving

Now Online: Weekly Digest
Feasting Season: The Bigger Picture Beyond the Plate

Thank you for joining me for this Weekly Digest. As we are nearing Tha
nksgiving Day and the feasting season of the next several weeks today the Digest takes a look at the greater picture of our feasting traditions. I hope you will find our feature article insightful. As I researched the traditions and customs of food gatherings I came to understand that these big holiday meals symbolize community and human experience beyond the individual plate. While the feasting can feel overwhelming to us after bariatric surgery we can find ways to participate as part of the group while meeting our individual needs and restrictions. Feature Article. And while the feasting traditions continue, newer traditions present opportunities beyond the table. Take a look at the Turkey Quest article and tool to help us find charitable and volunteer opportunities in which to participate. And finally, in homage to the ubiquitous pumpkin I share a cookie recipe from Diabetic Living. Make and share these delicious cookies this week and feel good about contributing a healthy option to your holiday menu.

HOTLINES!
As the holiday nears we have gathered some terrific hotline resources for your cooking questions and emergencies including Butterball Turkey Talk and the US Department of Agriculture. Keep this reference list at hand ... just in case.

Thank you again for joining me, remember, We are ALL in this together. I wish you and the people you celebrate with a happy and healthy Thanksgiving.

Cheers!
Kaye Bailey

Staying Healthy During the Holidays

Staying Healthy During the Holidays

From Whole Story: The Official Whole Foods Blog

Body
So, you’ve recovered from your Halloween sugar crash and you’re committed to better eating habits for the holiday season. There’s just one problem: mom’s sweet potato casserole covered in butter and marshmallows… or grandma’s ultra rich pumpkin pie… or all of that leftover Halloween candy! Okay, maybe we’ve got a few problems on our hands here.
Roasted Spiced Sweet Potatoes and Pears
Many traditional holiday foods are high in sugar, fat and salt — and the sheer length of the modern holiday season (does it seem to last from Halloween to New Year's?) can exhaust even the best of dietary intentions. Here are a few suggestions for staying health-focused during this time of year.

Cooking & Entertaining
Split Pea SoupWhen creating meals for your loved ones, keep in mind that they may share your holiday eating woes. Don’t be afraid to substitute some favorite classes with updated healthful, delicious holiday recipes. You may find yourself creating new faves among your family and friends. A meal prepared from a wide range of delicious, natural, and whole fresh foods is one of the greatest gifts you can give friends and family.

A great starting place for menu planning is to choose recipes that feature seasonal vegetables such as leafy greens, winter squashes and root vegetables. Plan to always serve a green salad and plenty of vegetable and whole grain side dishes with your holiday meals. Speaking of whole grains, try working more of these into your holiday baking. Most recipes will produce great results with half the amount of all-purpose flour replaced with whole wheat or whole wheat pastry flour.

At Parties
When you’re not deciding the menu, staying on a healthy path can prove more challenging. We’ve got tips for navigating the nutritional landmines of holiday parties.
Eat a healthy, filling snack or small meal before heading out; it's easier to make sensible food and drink choices when you aren’t famished.

Once you’re at the party, think about portion sizes. Choose a smaller plate when you head over to a holiday buffet, and have just a spoon or two or a single slice of each offering. Emphasize vegetables and whole grains on your plate with larger portion sizes, which will help you feel satisfied and boost your nutrient intake.

Also, if asked to share a dish for a holiday meal, party or potluck, make it a healthy one! This way you'll always have at least one great option to fill up on. You can try one of our excellent holiday recipes, or even visit our prepared foods department and look for Health Starts Here-labeled dishes.

Just at Home
Romantic Rice BowlSince holiday parties and celebrations tend to derail normal eating habits, too, commit to healthy eating during non-holiday related meals during the season. Base your meals around fruits, vegetables, whole grains and plant-based proteins and avoid processed, salty, sugary and fatty foods. You’ll enjoy splurges more if you know you’re balancing them out with a healthy foundation.

And don’t forget, health is more than just food. Stick to a good exercise plan, and try to add some fun activities like skating, sledding, hiking and walking to your schedule. Take a walk with family after big meals, integrate activity into the party plan, get people moving!
Last but not least, remember to relax, get enough sleep, have some laughs and enjoy the season!

What are your tips for staying healthy during the holidays?  We’d love to hear what helps you!

Thanksgiving Classics we Love

Cooking with Kaye Newsletter November 8, 2012
Link for Full Newsletter with 10 Recipes

Kaye's Kitchen: 
Greetings Neighbors! 
 
Can you believe we are two weeks away from Thanksgiving?  I have started planning the menu for our family dinner; my favorite holiday of the year. And I'm sure many of you are doing the same. This time of year I enjoy receiving emails from my LivingAfterWLS Neighbors who often ask, "Kaye do you remember that one recipe you gave us, it had something like..." and I get to look back at our growing collection to find an old favorite recipe. Today I'm proud to publish some these favorite classics again for you. Maybe they will be new and find a place on your table, maybe they are an old favorite and you are glad to be reminded of them. Either way I know you will enjoy them because they are delicious and reliable and have stood the test of time.

To those affected by recent weather disasters I send out my deepest care and concern with hopes that each day brings recovery, comfort, and security. I hope that despite this hardship and adversity we may all find something for which to be grateful.

I wish a blessed Thanksgiving to our LivingAfterWLS Neighbors. May your day be filled with gratitude as you embrace the people and traditions most important to you.

Sincerely,
Kaye


And remember, you can always find great LivingAfterWLS recipes online in our Kitchen!

NO! to Holiday Weight Gain

5 Day Pouch Test November Bulletin - in our archive today!
Link Here: November 5DPT Bulletin


Too busy for the 5DPT?

That's Okay! You can still use techniques and tricks to thrive during the Feasting Season. 


November 2012

This is your year to say NO! 
to holiday weight gain.


Greetings Neighbors!

Fall Flowers

To all of our Neighbors affected by Superstorm Sandy I send my heartfelt wishes and prayers for your safety and health. My heart aches for the suffering and destruction brought about by this act of nature. I am supporting your recovery efforts with a contribution dedicated to all LivingAfterWLS Neighbors to the American Red Cross. May peace be with us all.

This November 5DPT Bulletin is all about taking little steps to manage our weight with surgery. There is no question that the 5 Day Pouch Test has helped thousands of people get back on track with their WLS goals. One reason for this success is that the plan forces us to look at the very basics of the WLS lifestyle and return to the behaviors that helped us lose weight initially out of surgery. Sometimes all we need is a reboot, a reminder, an ah-ha moment of rediscovering a tool or technique we may have forgotten. Today's Bulletin is loaded with tools and techniques that work in our weight management and we can use them as part of a successful 5 Day Pouch Test or a less-dramatic reboot.  I know I need the occasional back-to-basics refresher course; I hope you will benefit from my experience.
Be sure to check-out today's Featured Recipe:Turkey Filled Colorful Peppers. Enjoy this on Days 4 or 5 of the 5 Day Pouch Test or anytime on Day 6!

We are all in this together!

You are more powerful than you think and
You Can Do This!

Kaye
