One of my favorite television shows is Everybody Loves Raymond, I am still watching this series and I never grow tired of it. Perhaps it is because I can relate to the family dynamic between Debra and Marie. The Thanksgiving episode where Marie serves her family a Tofurky, low fat meal, cracks me up – because I can relate.
Steve and I have packed on a few pounds and decided to engage in a low carb lifestyle; I often wonder how we will enjoy the holidays on this restricted carb regimen. This is where I envision my family responding with the same horror as Marie’s family did in the holiday episode. It is a must watch.
Not wanting the same experience – as there would be no crowd inserted laughter, I sought out a better way to celebrate with food – real food. Better Homes and Gardens has a website where I found this low carb menu to help navigate the Holidays. I am going to try it this year. Unlike the Barone family, we will be enjoying real turkey!
Check out the Better Homes and Gardens website – there is a lot of great ideas that cover a large range of interests, and make sure to check out the Deep Fried Pumpkin Pie Bites ( they are not on my diet, so be sure to tell me how delicious they are).
