I'm not sure why I felt so compelled to start this, but I thought it would be so fun to share what is on my Thanksgiving menu this year. It's been a while since we've actually had a Thanksgiving meal on the day of. Usually we're traveling somewhere and piece-mealing grilled cheeses together (also a beautiful family tradition of ours)! But if you know me at all, you know how much I love to host and more important love to feed folks, so here is what's happening in the Shah household in a few days, and my overall game plan!
Remember that we are vegetarian, and I always want to make sure there is still a star of the show outside of the sides. This year, I wanted to make sure there was a good balance of the traditional sides along with a variety of green veggies to even out the heavier starches.
Living an Ayurvedic lifestyle--I like to always live by what I call the 80/20 rule. Enjoy your food. Enjoy the holidays. Eat guilt free. But, understand your body. Know the tools you need to come back into balance.
Anyways, here's what I'm thinking through, and I can't wait to get started!
The Sides & Main Event:
I truly can't wait! The tablescape in my head looks perfect (still waiting for things to come in), and the food perfectly set.
I hope that you are getting rest and having fun this week. Happy Thanksgiving Week!
